    As I have said on other threads, it's not until adultness that I seriously started playing shoot 'em ups in general and getting familiar with Toaplan in particular. This game offers a tough but fair...

    Uhhh, well, no, I can't say I like this one. It focuses too much on small combos and cheap tactics, and technically it looks quite ugly.

    Nothing special to be fair. I may even dare to say that graphically this game is on the ugly side. However, its action is chaotic (I mean, come on, I feel like piloting a freaking Gundam when I play...

    Is it THAT bad? I mean, it's not a looker for our system, very MSX-like if you want, but other than the brutal difficulty and not being the cup of tea of many players, I can't see what's wrong with...

    These New World Computer games were a notable addition to the MD library: they looked and sounded nice and played very well, sticking to the overused trope "easy to get in, hard to master". In the...

    Well, at least, generally speaking and not going into specific game genres, it controls better than Hard Drivin'. Too bad it's so dull nowadays.

    An OK game once one gets used to the controls of the side scrolling segments, much like Golvellius, another MSX adaptation.

    I played this several days ago and I stand by my post above: Still like it, but I have to say the jokes the characters make are awful.

    Excellent idea, very good execution. It doesn't get any more animesque than that: a cute Peruvian girl kicking gangsters and demons' asses in the middle of the Prohibition era. It looks nice, it...

    To me, it sounds like a mixture of demented carnival music that turns into a call to adventure. Intriguing.
    That said, yep, I still like this game despite its flaws.

    For my second comment in this thread I want to praise the sheer ugliness of the intro: what a scary looking, off-model piece of crap.

    Heh, well, I kinda like it. A ball and paddle game with more story than Arkanoid (albeit inferior as a game itself), scrolling and a fairytale ambience. I can't hate it.
