LactobacillusPrime posted a video in LactobacillusPrime (Marks Shmup Videos)Is gun nac related to Power Strike/Aleste? There is a link! Gunnac is very similar to the Power Strike Series/Aleste Series made by Compile. Gunnac was also made by Compile so there may actually be a reason why these games are so similar! Developer(s): Compile Publisher(s):Tonkin House (Japanese publisher), ASCII (North American publisher) Platform(s):Nintendo Entertainment System Release date(s):JP October 5, 1990, NA April 1991 Genre(s):Shoot 'em up Mode(s):Single-player Media:cartridge Input methods:NES controller In this video I show the similarities between the Aleste/Power Strike games and Gun Nac! I got my Gunnac Nes cart, which is actually quite rare. It's a 3 screw cart and it is in an alright condition. Not mint though. I do own a Famicom version of this cart as well... There's a couple of things wrong with this video. My old computer drops quite a few frames when it comes to grabbing from consoles. I had to resort to a 2.4Ghz Pentium IV because my core2duo Acer system kicked the bucket. And the editing software defaulted to PAL whereas the footage was actually in NTSC so the video is struggeling a bit
In this video I take a look at the Japanese Playstation disc with the game Zanac X which is becoming more rare by the day 😞 Go check it out. Zanac is a very cool series of Shmup games created by Compile. The game originated on the MSX and NES but also found its way on many other systems like this Playstation One version. It's very similar to other Compile shmups like PowerStrike, Aleste, Super Aleste, M.U.S.H.A. All these games feature a similar weapons system. Other good Compile shmups are Blazing Lazers on the TG16 and Gunnac on the Nes.
