Super Contra is the sequel to Contra and was developed and distributed into arcades by Konami in 1988. It’s another challenging vertical screen run-and-gun shooter featuring super soldiers Bill and Lance, fighting the same alien creatures as seen in the previous game. Except this time they’re on a different mission and events are set one year later.
Dark Savior is an isometric action game developed by Climax Entertainment and published by Sega for the Saturn in 1996. In my opinion the game is a bad idea, badly translated, poorly executed, and with some pretty awful story-telling.
This 1990 arcade game from Konami plays fast and loose with the storyline, locations and situations from James Cameron‘s famous film, Aliens, but is still reasonably enjoyable to play.
Hamsters is a hilarious action game where the aim is to squash cute animals with a large wooden mallet and to collect the goodies that they drop as a result of being hit… Haha. Take that: cute animals!
I won’t beat around the bush: I absolutely HATE Nebulus 2: Pogo-A-Go-Go.
I wanted to love it – because I love the original Nebulus – but this game is NOT by the original author (John M. Phillips), and – after playing it for a few hours for the first time this week – I can only conclude that it is absolute rubbish.
Sega‘s brilliant Super Monkey Ball series reaches its pinnacle with this Nintendo GameCube sequel.
