    • TF3 was developed for the Mega Drive’s 68000 CPU

    TechnoSoft’s commitment to the 68k was impressive!
    That is crazy ^ So TF3 and TF4 are like Sonic 2 vs Sonic in people opinions on which is better. I guess Sega didn't make a bad call adding this to Mini after all reading this thread =)

    I would go with TF4 if I could choose. But TF3 is a lot of fun too, it is easier for noobs and it has the perfect catchy soundtrack in the earlier stages (opposed to TF4 which keeps the best music for later stages and even the staff roll screen lol). So I think TF3 is perfectly fine for the mini. Why not both tho?

    TF4 is like "More Parallax Scrolling and Better Graphics: The Game". It's fucking loaded. Easily the best-looking shmup on the system, and really one of the best looking of any genre. It does have its issues with slowdown, though. TF3 is much better in that regard.

    I don't think it is for noobs, but TF4 is still a challenge even after beating it a few times while TF3 is easier to pick up and play and if you find it too easy there is always the MANIA level. I love both games.

    Thunder Force III has a bit of a reputation for being a cakewalk and that's true, but fair warning: the learning curve generally insists on kicking your arse a few times first with it's 'gotcha' enemy patterns and environmental hazards (much less of a thing in IV, even though IV is more difficult overall) - and you'll chain deaths as a result (from losing weapons and having no shield on respawn). But once you have those memorised, staying fully powered-up will allow you to tear through bosses in seconds and you'll clear the game quickly.

    II is even more nasty with that sort of stuff. In the horizontal stages anyway.
