Strider, Arcade

Another arcade classic from Capcom, first released in 1989.

Strider is a side-scrolling, run-and-hack platform game featuring the popular ‘Hiryu’ character, and who is armed with a plasma blade called ‘Cypher’. Hiryu is fast and acrobatic. He can run, jump, spin, climb walls and ceilings, and can execute sword manoeuvres quickly with fast button presses.

Strider still plays great now, and when you get a hang of the movement you can really give the enemies hell.

Strider still looks ace too, with stylish graphics that are beautifully drawn, coloured and animated.
