  1. Eastasiasoft's PS4 Limited Editions have been a pretty great success, offering fantastic extras to gamers into indie titles for a great, low price. Now they're producing Switch games, and their first is - once again - Dimension Drive and this time it adds a crucial new extra! In this Mudprints Unboxes, we're taking a look at the Dimension Drive Limited Edition for the Nintendo Switch.
  2. Donkey Kong, Mario and Pauline drawn by Leslie Cabarga
  3. This time no game character but a game that has been ported many times. It is amazing to see that some ports even copy the handwritten Williams by 'handwriting' their own or the company name. Then there's the explosions that are all very similar. The game screen layout including the radar - which does not really seem to work properly in the c64 version I got - is very very similar for quite a number of the ports. The two Odyssey2 games that flash in between somewhere don't really belong but do resemble the gameplay just a tad. But I had it connected so I thought ...'what the hell'...
  4. 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
  5. Okay so it's the sequel. The Nes goes without the original - at least to my knowledge is does. Check it out. It plays well. The 2600 version is just as good and very similar to the Centipede game on that console.
  6. Checking out Centipede on the Gameboy Advance through the Gameboy Player on the Gamecube. I used VirtualDub to get rid of the ever present gameboy-player-'border'.
  7. Taking a look at the 3 Parodius Games I own on the Snes/Super Famicom. Parodius Da! Gokujyou Parodius Jikkyo Oshaberi Parodius Crappy editing due to a failing Windows XP installation. I am installing Windows 7 on the grabbing PC now.
  8. RetrogamerVX's original video found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cBX_5HLBNEo Defender (Vic 20): 034625 Defender (Intellivision): 8175 Defender (Atari 800XL): 6725 Defender (Arcade): 1500, 4225, 4800 Defender II (Nes): 8000
  9. Gyruss is a very nice shmup that is very similar to Galaga and Galaxian only with a conical/wrapping screen lay out and some fancy emulated ' scaling' effects creating a 3D look. In this video I check out 3 ports and talk a bit while I play the games - rather badly actually. 🙂 I couldn't find my C64 version but that is well worth playing and checking out and quite close to the arcade game actually. Are there other ports out there?

    Uridium on the NES(US) (HD)

    Uridium was indeed released for the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1990 but it got shelved. Publisher Mindscape later on got the license to release a game based on the movie 'The Last Starfighter'. But rather than create a new game, Mindscape chose to recycle the unreleaed UIridium-game. The title screen, game-sprites, and the soundtrack were all modified, but the levels and gameplay were identical as well as the mini-games. So basically it is Uridium on the NES with a bogus movie Liscense. Platform(s): Commodore 64, ZX Spectrum, Atari ST, Amstrad CPC, BBC Micro, Virtual Console, MS-DOS, Amiga (Uridium 2), Nintendo (The Last Starfighter) Designer(s): Andrew Braybrook Developer(s): Dominic Robinson (ZX Spectrum), Steve Turner (Music) I found out about this fact by reading the Retrogamer magazine. http://www.Retrogamer.net and Wikipedia

    Super R-Type - highscore challenge (YTGC) (HD)

    In normal mode and/or in easy mode what is the highest score you can achieve? Check out the end of my video for both of my scores. I actually score higher in the 'normal' mode than in the 'easy' mode. This is my attempt in both modes and it is a response to the original challenge video put out by Trouble8385 and that can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bd8JurDoh5U Robert's own attempt can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x_IUkeCgYH8
  12. Compile is one of the great shoot'm up creators from the land of the rusing sun. Aleste / Power Strike has been one of their major series on various platforms. This game is the 16 bit incarnation on the Super Nintendo. If you want to find the US version of the game it is called 'Space Megaforce'. The Japanese version is the most complete version though! Super Aleste has very lush and varied stages, ranging from forests to alien bases. Here is the l i s t o f s t a g e s a n d o r i g i n a l n a m e s : -Emerald Belt Jungles - The first level of the standard game. It is very lush, then there is an expansive field full of alien built floating cities, with a defense system, which after then the player encounters their first end stage boss, a machine armed with four cannons, called Agalor. -Super Battle Ship - A very large space station-like enemy called Dunbak, it has weapon emplacements all over it, with the last enemy a set of nine turrets. -First Bonus Stage - An alien space mining zone, with the boss being a machine called Sangor. -Pullman Nebula - An area in space where there is an enemy emplacement, called Fakkrel, with enemies ranging from fighters, flame emitting ships, and expanding/contracting moons. -Cavern of Doom - The caverns of a planet which is dead from over mining by drill units and the boss, a bronze contraption called Tabary. -Second Bonus Stage - Another mining quick stage, with the boss being a machine called Blasmet. -Meteor Shower Zone - An area in space where asteroids roam free, and in the middle of the field, is an alien base with a defense station called Mingal. -The Ghost Fleet - An area where an unsuccessful attempt by the Earth Defense Force's fleet lays. Sadly, the Alien army has gained control of the laser systems and engines on the Earth's battleships and are using them against the Aleste. The boss is called Thork. -Third Bonus Stage - The final alien mining zone, this one is better protected, and the boss is called Dubber, and it launches small fighters. -Mirror Jungle - The alien mirror world of the first stage's jungle, it has flying stone blocks and enemies galore. The boss here is repeat of the first one, Agalor, except this time Agalor is harder to destroy and has bombs added to his arsenal. -Turbo Tunnel - A large blue and black tunnel where the Aleste flies very fast, and must dodge turrets and fighters to make it out. There is no boss. -Alien Lair - The final level, there are literally cells which attack you, with a pulsating background. Tabary and Thork return as minibosses, and you have the showdown with the alien leader, Zaju. The Japanese version has more content than the European and American versions, here are s o m e o f t h e d i f f e r e n c e s: Has Super Deformed art on the options and game over screen. Has story intermissions between the stages. The ending is twice as long and reveals the mystery behind the enemy invasion. More information is revealed upon beating the game on the harder, very hard, and then the hardest difficulty levels. The names of the levels and their bosses are different This video was inspired after seing Lawnboyspost1975 video in which he does a great shout out to me and plays the game rather well actually.

    Mark Plays... Nano Assault NEO (WiiU)

    You need to stop the spread of the deadly Nanostray virus. You fight to make cells healthy again. Sounds like a boring biology themed bit of educational software disguised as a game but it is far from anything remotely educational. Nano Assault NEO is a great twin stick analog shooter on the WiiU - available as a downloadable game. You can play this without a TV - on the gamepad only! It also sports 2 player-cooperative play, one gamer plays on the WiiU gamepad and another plays on the TV. http://www.nanoassaultgame.com/neo/ Developer: Shin'en Multimedia Platform: WiiU Genre: Shoot 'em up / shmup America: US$9.99 Europe: €9.99/£8.99 Australia: AU$13.00 Japan: ¥1000 (8th June 2013) I completely forgot to use the RZ button. Hey it's me playing okay? 🙂 I captured this in 1080p and as my system is a little underpowered the footage is not as smooth as the actual gameplay on the WiiU. I think I'm much better off playing and capturing the games at 720p.

    Mark Tries Shmups On The SNES (NTSC)

    In this video(series) I play some of my favourite Shmups on the NTSC-Snes. I start the game and see how far I can get until game over appears. Now some of these games are hard as nails and I may not be the best at them either as I was waffling while playing. Let me know what you think and if you'd like to see more of these.
  15. Playing Geometry Wars Galaxies for the Nintendo DS with Drastic on an Android gaming handheld GPD-XD. Using the HDMI output feature to display the screen on the TV and to grab it with a video capture card.

    Upcoming shooters

    It seems another shmup is gearing up to be released on the Nintendo Switch. This time it's the four player co-op shooter Stardust Galaxy Warriors: Stellar Climax. It's going to be available via the eShop only according to the publisher Aksys. No news on release date or price yet.
