  1. Version [EasyFlash]

    Thunder Blade (サンダーブレード Sandāburēdo) is an arcade, flight-based, third-person rail shooter originally released for video arcades in 1987. In the game, players control a helicopter to destroy enemy vehicles. The game was released as standard stand-up arcade cabinet that introduced the use of force feedback, as the joystick vibrates during gameplay. A sit-down unit was also released, replacing the force feedback with a seat that moves in tandem with the joystick. Versions of the game were later released for the Sega Master System, Amiga, Amstrad CPC, Atari ST, Commodore 64, DOS, MSX, TurboGrafx-16, Sharp X68000 and ZX Spectrum. The Nintendo 3DS remake was released as a 3D Classic in Japan on August 20, 2014, in North America and Europe on May 14, 2015, and in Australia on July 2, 2015. The game's plot and setting resembles the 1983 film and 1984 TV series of Blue Thunder. The player controls a helicopter using guns and missiles to destroy enemy tanks, helicopters, etc., to save his home country. Levels are in both a top-down or third-person perspective view. The boss levels are in the top-down view.

    U.N. Squadron is a 1989 side-scrolling shooting game released by Capcom for the CPS arcade hardware and for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. The game was released in Japan as Area 88 (Japanese: エリア88 Hepburn: Eria Hachi-Jū-Hachi) and is based on the manga series of the same name, featuring the same main characters. Here, their mission is to stop a terrorist group known as Project 4. It was followed by a spiritual successor Carrier Air Wing. The game is a typical side scrolling shooter, going against the trend of other Capcom shooters, such as 1942, and 1943: The Battle of Midway, which are vertically scrolling shooters. However, like other Capcom shooters, the player has an energy bar that is consumed over the course of a single life as the player sustains damage. This trait is highly uncommon among other comparable arcade-style shooters which normally use a system of reserve lives, where one of which is lost upon a single enemy hit. Before entering a level, the player can purchase special weapons or added defenses in the shop. The player earns money to buy weapons by destroying enemy planes and vehicles during levels and, when the level is finished, any unused weapons are converted back into money. The player can choose between three mercenary pilots: Shin Kazama, Mickey Simon, and Greg Gates. Each pilot flies a specific plane and has slightly different capabilities. The game was converted to the Super Nintendo Entertainment System and Super Famicom in 1991. Unlike in the arcade version, each pilot can use a range of planes. All pilots start out with $3000 and the basic F8 Crusader, and can buy other aircraft and weapons as they progress.

    At first glance, Dragon Spirit looks just like any other vertical shooters, except that you ride a dragon instead of a spaceship. Once you spend some time with the game, however, you will find many neat differences that set it apart from most shooters. Your goal is to go through 9 stages to rescue your sister and her maids from an evil demon called Zawel. When you start the game, you can breath only a puny single-shot fire blast, but you will slowly grow to become a three-headed flame breathing monster. Yes, you can grow heads in this game - just one of the neat power-ups you can find. Other power-ups include firepower increase, speed boost, and calling up two "ghost" dragons to help your cause. Along with power-ups, there are also "power-downs" - bad items that you must avoid, lest they drain your power, etc. The difficulty system in Dragon Spirit is one of the most innovative ones you'll come across in a shooter. Once you beat the demon Zawel, you can go on to play the game in the "Blue Dragon mode" which is the normal mode. If you lose this one, you play the "Gold Dragon mode" which is an easier, shorter mode. This makes the game fun to players of all skill levels. Yet another innovative feature of Dragon Spirit is when you rescue the maids at the end of each stage. If you have "fulfilled" certain things, the maid will be visible and can help you. Last but not least, Dragon Spirit is very intuitive and easy to play. The graphics is no match for the crisp graphics of the original arcade game, but it is more than adequate - and almost on par with the official Amiga conversion.

    Dragon Spirit is an excellent but little-known PC conversion of a hit arcade game, originally from Bandai but converted by a team of fans. At first glance, Dragon Spirit looks just like any other vertical shooters, except that you ride a dragon instead of a spaceship.

Your goal is to go through 9 stages to rescue your sister and her maids from an evil demon called Zawel.

All in all, Dragon Spirit is a very well-done conversion that all shooter fans should take a look. Recommended! Review By HOTUD

    To cut it short: Everything that made the Amiga version of Blood Money one of the most enjoyable shoot'em ups ever is missing is this PC conversion. So what's left is a mediocre game-- the great soundtrack, graphics, and even fluid gameplay of the Amiga version is nowhere to be found here. What a pity. (You expected me to trash this, right?) Still, some might consider this a nice game if you love classic side-scrolling shooters in general. Everyone should download the Amiga ROM from some Amiga site and play it on an emulator, though, to see how good this game can get. Disappointing. Review By HOTUD

    Review By HOTUD: In the crowded arena of Space Invaders clones (there must be hundreds of them floating around the WWW), Cash Invaders stands out from the rest with sheer size and playability. Inspired not only by Space Invaders but also by Psygnosis' Blood Money and other space shooters, * Cash Invaders* features a staggering amount of levels - 100 in all, plus 10 bonus levels. You shoot aliens to earn money, which you can use at the end of each level to buy power-ups. There is a large arsenal of weaponry, power-ups, and types of aliens, which means the game will sustain your interest for much longer than a typical Space Invaders clone. Smoothly animated ray-traced graphics and nice ship/alien design rounds off this fun underdog that you will come back now and again for some mindless fun. Highly recommended!

    The spiritual precursor to Safari's more famous shooter Tyrian, Highway Hunter is an addictive, knuckle-blistering shooter from obscure Russian developer Omega Integral Systems (OIS). The game puts you in control of an armed-to-the-hilt car instead of the more common spaceship. The gameplay is straightforward shooting mayhem: kill everything in sight and collect power-ups to prepare for the end-level boss. A wide variety of power-ups, enemies, and levels makes this a must-play for all shooter fans. Recommended, and also check out Highway Fighter, the 1993 spiritual "prequel" that is even more obscure than this game. Review By HOTUD

    Highway Fighter is a very obscure precursor to Highway Hunter, a shareware game from Russia published by Safari and later by Epic MegaGames. Although the game offers the same plot, similar graphics and gameplay - blast various baddies while staying on the road - it has some noticeable differences. First, the weapon/shield/score counter at the bottom of the screen has a different look, and is easier to see. Although unit graphics is almost identical to Highway Hunter, some levels are different. The overall game is also much more difficult than Highway Hunter - so much so, in fact, that it seems as though OIS designed this game primarily for hard-core action gamers, only to "tone down" the difficulty level later before releasing it overseas. Although it remains a very obscure game, Highway Fighter is all in English. So if you like Highway Hunter, you will definitely enjoy this precursor that is much more challenging. I gave up after level three, but I am sure veteran gamers would have no trouble blasting endless enemies. Recommended! Review By HOTUD
