Who likes to play arcade? A good coin-swallowing machine had always a specific game style that attracts many people. Time Crisis and House of the Dead are just classics despite the easy way someone can die there.Needless to say,there are multiple ports of those games, which became classics in themselves. Who doesn’t remember Turtles in Time? But the one I am referring to is not precisely an arcade adaptation. It has an arcade style, and back in 1996 it was a great game.
Starfox had just done its first successful experiment on the SNES, which sadly I never played. After that, as one of the first titles for the new console released the great Star Fox 64, foregoing the sequel for the older console (sadly).
I remember the hours of gameplay my friends and I spent on this. Maybe the multi player was not of a great notice, but the single player structure allowed for quick swaps between levels. It was quick and simple, but the greatest thing was that it had many pathways. In about half an hour to one hour you could finish it,so there was ample time to look for the other pathways.
The best parts were the dodge-fights with Star Wolf. As an enemy team equal to you and your team they made a perfect enemy. I only wish there had been more of those! The only negative side I found to this game was the submarine level. I think it was extremely frustrating, specially because the transport was hard to move. Even the tank had a better maneuverability!
Also, we have to consider that back then the graphics were pretty new. Even though I think the triangle based figures do not precisely look good, they were considered back then the best. No matter how awkward it looks, it is still something to look at and have a nostalgic moment.
If you are looking for a good, quick game, look no further. This action packed game is perfect for it. It may be no arcade, but it comes close to it.
May they smile upon your way!
