  • Excerpt: One of the most revered shooter games in history was created by one of the most legendary groups of developers of its day. This talented bunch was initially responsible for the Konami’s classic series Contra and most of the sequels that followed it. Years later, for whatever reason, they decided to pack up and strike out on their own and the development house Treasure was born.

  • Excerpt: Ahhh, shoot-em-ups. So many classics, so little re-releases. Thankfully, one of the best was recently released for XBLA, and now everyone can enjoy Ikaruga . Built as a minimalist shooter, this game is quite possibly one of the most efficiently designed games of the genre. What Ikaruga does differently from all the rest, besides stripping away all of the fluff, is use a “duality” theme to create a game where you have two different polarities of your ship, each one...

Ikaruga Xbox Live Review

DarkZero

  • Excerpt: I must say, being one of my favourite genres and despite the fact I’ve bought the game twice, I feel rather honoured to be doing this review.

  • Excerpt: Ab sofort dürfen viele Dreamcasts in Rente gehen, denn ­Treasures stylisches Shoot’em-Up gibt’s endlich zum Download. Die Xbox-Live-Fassung bleibt wohlweislich ganz nahe an der Vorlage, Sound und vor allem Grafik blieben identisch und wirken auch im HD-Format genauso edel wie damals. Der originelle Ansatz, Euer Raumschiff auf Knopfdruck schwarz oder weiß zu färben und es damit für die jeweiligen Gegnerangriffe immun zu machen, ist immer noch spitze.
