 Post subject: New STG Gunnard Silverwing on Smile Basic 4 for Switch...

Was browsing the new games selection on Smile Basic 4 ver. 4.4.2 running on the Switch platform and came across a brand new STG title by the name of Gunnard Silverwing by famed developer Yukisoft.

Note: you'll need to buy a one-time "Server Ticket" in order to d/l any SB4 game/app/demo to your Switch (which is a mere $5.00 USD).

Gunnard Silverwing as of 11/17/2020 is listed at version 0.1 and plays like those old-school Compile Caravan STGs on the classic PC Engine platform except without a timer to contend with + three lives are given at the start of a serious session of GS indeed.

Makes me wonder what new updates will be added to GS in the nearby future.


Some other SB4 STG titles worth d/l'ing are:

Reflection Force aka Project Reflect Edge 2 -- version 1.0.4 with 60fps framerate & cool Psyvariar themed fonts

Solid Gunner Vertika

Givers P3D -- dev Bugtaro's slick low-res 3D polygonal STG

Solid Soldier Collection

Solid Soldier

Kyu Sen Kai

Sonic Strikers


FuraFura Torpedo

Shot 180 -- plays like the classic Compile Caravan STGs on the PCE + countdown timer to contend with

Q OOGiri4

Q Gaswitch -- plays like Namco's classic Galaplus/Galaga 3 arcade pcb

Cyburst -- cool abstract STG with solid 60fps framerate

Petitsy Zone II -- by famed dev that pays homage to Sega's classic Fanasty Zone STG title + 60fps framerate

Reflection Force is one of the better professionally developed & visually stylized STG titles running on the current SB4 engine rev 4.4.2 for the Switch platform + even includes vibrational functionality (which can be disabled if so desired). How cool is that?

FYI: most of the SB4 STG titles do save your high scores (and high score initials where applicable) if you save at the saving screen prompts.

PC Engine Fan X! ^_~
