    dchattin's 超連射68K (PC)

    [February 9, 2007 02:27:13 PM]
    Even though the graphics are all sprites, this game still looks great. Each level has about 10 unique enemies. Enemy shots are bright and easy to see. Explosions are very satisfying with little chunks of metal flying out. There is only one background, which gets a little old, but most of the time you aren't looking at it.

    It has an excellent powerup system: when you defeat a powerup-holding enemy, three boxes float in a ring. One box powers up your gun, one box gives you another bomb, one box gives you a shield (you can only have one shield at once). If you are REALLY GOOD, fly your ship into the center of of the ring for a few seconds, and you can pick up all 3. I've only been able to do this once, on the first stage, when enemies weren't shooting at me.

    Make sure to use your bombs. If you can do well enough to completely power up your gun and shield, it's very much worth it to use a bomb instead of lose your shield. This is because when you die your gun goes back to normal, and when you're not powered up it can be very tough on the later levels to clear out enemies as fast as they appear. That's probably my least favorite part of the game: once you die once you tend to die again quickly.

    I don't even know what the name of this game translates to so I just copied the japanese text from its website. But this game is a WONDERFUL shooter, and you can download it for free here:

    Download, unzip, and run LATEST.exe. Use a joystick or arrow keys, Z and X.

    It seems to be purposefully designed to feel like a classic shooter: it runs in 640x480, the graphics are all sprites, and the music sounds old too, like a SNES.

    The music is wonderfully arranged, and you can listen to any of the tracks in the options menu.

    The gameplay is just as classic. Move, shoot, bomb. The enemies are always challenging, and yet different on every level. Bosses are huge, with multiple forms, and they will make you sweat. And it has a Hard mode where every exploding enemy sends a few extra shots at you. There's also infinite Continues if you want to see all the levels. I've been playing this game on and off for months but still haven't beaten it on a single credit.
