ACA Trigon announced! For PS4 and Switch. Really happy about this - they've already made a good start on orphaned 80s Konami STGs with A-JAX and Flak Attack. Here's hoping Gemini Wing comes through, too.

Gemini Wing and Sunset Riders are two games from childhood. My mom would bring me to the local chippie every payday as a trear and they had a Sunset Riders cab. Good memories.

Gemini Wing used to kick my ass on my Amstrad. Not such good memories :lol:

I've an odd, mythologised relationship with Sunset Riders. I remember playing its 4P mode on a massive projector display on holiday as a little kid, and its 16bit conversions never got JP releases, so it's remained this monstrous outsized thing in my mind. I like to sustain those sorts of childhood arcade illusions, makes finally playing the games at home a little event in itself. :mrgreen:

Anyone tried Red Death yet? EastAsiaSoft is publishing it, so I expect a physical version will likely show up on Play-Asia at some point. I'm not sure if they're intentionally going for a Virtual Boy gimmick or not, but it looks like a decent little game for the price based on the short video in the eshop.

Graphics have a strong Zero Ranger vibe to them. I looked at some gameplay video and it feels euroshmup, as in not enough time/firepower to destroy everything.

Yep it's exactly as it felt playing it. The weapons lack any oomph to be really viable, apart from the laser which is overpowered. It doesn't help that everything on the screen is red and white, bullets and collectibles included. It gets a little confusing.

It seems ok for the price but ZeroRanger is the better game.

Q-YO Blaster out 27/6

Looks fun anyone played it here ?


30fps.
It looks nice, but it's pretty crappy, to be honest. Very boring, you'll play through it once. Wait for a sale.


So, it's on sale now for $6.67 in the US Switch eshop (33% off)... I'm kinda tempted due to the nice looking graphics and some surprisingly consistent positive reviews on Steam. Seems like something very much in the vein of Harmful Park or Parodius, which I can get behind. But if it's as bad as clippa says, maybe not worth the time.

Anyone else played it and have quick impressions?


I'm asking again for some impressions about Q-Yo Blaster. Currently -90% on EU eshop.

I'm on corona austerity, what's the usual turnaround time for this kind of thing to make it to the US eshop? I know I could just buy it from the Japanese one but... I kinda don't wanna.

So, sadly, this game sucks. There are only 3 levels, and you play each as a discrete chapter so there's not even the potential for a full run through the game. It's absurdly easy, and the weapon system is horrible. All the would-be power-ups are just dumb gimmicks, and I found myself just avoiding them after a while and sticking with the default "pea shooter". It's cheap, but you'll also beat it in 15 minutes and never want to play it again.
