We are back with a new kick ass game. I know it has been a while since the last Retro Game of the Week entry but it's definitely back for real this time around! We begin with an awesome game for the Famicom/NES. The game was never released here in the States and boy did we miss out.... Nevertheless, the year is 2013 and we have many different ways to enjoy this game. Whether it's through an emulator, NES reproduction, or the original Famicom title, we will have the same awesome experience. Lets get started!
The music is quite good for this game. It keeps you on your toes for real! Believe me, Konami knows their 8-bit music! The sound effects are improved from its predecessor so your ears will be happy to hear the retro-tunes and sound effects the game has to offer.
The game has some beautiful graphics. They are top notch for the time and you will not get confused on where to go. Be sure to enjoy all the scenery as long as you keep smashing the buttons constantly as the levels are packed with non-stop action.
The gameplay is just wonderful! The controls are just top notch and very responsive. You won't be disappointed but beware that the game does offer a high level of difficulty. It's so Konami for the game to have a level of difficulty. All of you whiners, get out while you can.
The game is just as enjoyable from beginning to end. If you have the guts to play through it and come back again for another run, you have been warned. As I mentioned before, the game is difficult and will only get more difficult as you go further in the game but it's so satisfying to come back to.
To conclude, the game is just amazing and should be in your collection even in rom form. This is sadly one of the many gems we missed out on. Be sure to pay your respects to the old shoot'em up games as they are packed with beauty and wonderful challenging gameplay. Until next week!
