Sine Mora Ex on Nintendo Switch versus Playstation 3

I am a huge fan of scrolling shooters. I suck at them but I like things that go boom in pretty explosions. Years ago, though, about 25 years or so, I was really good at these, never able to one man any single game but still able to beat man with the allotted lives. Years […]

Ghost Blade HD Brings Indie Bullet Hell Dreamcast Game to PC

Ghost Blade by Hucast games is one of those indie games that we saw years after the demise of the Sega Dreamcast. What set Ghost Blade apart from the competition was the graphics, sound, and the challenge level. Everything appeared more like an official release than an indie game developed with after the fact tools. […]

Chibi Akuma(s) – New ‘Bullet Hell’ Shooter Blasts onto Amstrad CPC

This has been a fantastic year for the Amstrad CPC 8-bit computer with a long list of activity on the new games front and, just before the year ends, we get another fine addition to that list. Chibi Akuma(s): Episode 1: Invasion, which takes full advantage of an Amstrad CPC computer with 128k of memory, […]

Review – Burger Time for Amstrad CPC

I don’t know much about the background of this game, but judging from what I observed I’d say this game was developed at one of those Amstrad CPC demo parties of yesteryear. 1995 to be exact, where the coders ZAK, ZIK and Rainbird of Futures group probably had a pig out session on junk food […]

Swabby Homebrew Independent Sega Game Gear Shooter Released

Scrolling shooters.  You are probably tired of me bringing up that the heyday of this genre being long gone.  That is fine.  It seems to be working.  We are seeing more scrolling shooting games pop up from the independent developer world.  That makes me happy.  I mean, I still for the most part suck at […]

Review – Air Attack 2 Overhead Shooter Android iPhone

Classic genres such as overhead shooters have been finding a new home in the mobile world.  That is great for fans that just want to see more overhead shooters.  Many of these newer games are not my cup of tea though- they are of the “bullet hell” style which I can honestly do without.  I […]

R-Types Brings Arcade Originals Home to Playstation – Today in History – February 28th, 1999

Over the course of gaming, we have seen a ton of scrolling shooters come and go.  The genre that started with the likes of Defender and Space Invaders evolved all the way up to visually impressive titles such as Ikaruga and the various bullet hell games.  One series that has held its own over the […]

Chojin Heiki Zeroigar for PC-FX Translated by Fans, Choshin What?

Scrolling shooters are a staple of videogames.  Don’t believe me, just go look at the catalog of games from the first days of videogames.  Asteroids was a shooter, so was Raid on Bungling Bay.  Defender- yep.  On the NES there were countless titles such as Gradius, Guardian Legend and more.  Scrolling shooters in general are […]

New Game: Dokingan Reminds PC Gamers What Bullet Hell Shooters are like

When it comes to arcade style, overhead or side scrolling, shooters the console market is the clear cut winner.  The PC world simply does not get many of this style of game.  In the past we have seen a few though, some of the Raiden games have been ported (though in extremely low resolution) and […]

New Game: X-Force Reminds Gamers that the Commodore 64 Can Rock Scrolling Shooters

Side scrolling shooters.  A genre that used to rule the roost in gaming, no matter what platform you gamed on, there was probably more than a handful of side scrolling shooters (unless it was a 3DO, CD-i or Playdia that is).  From the likes of Nemesis II on the Game Boy to Thunder Force III […]
