    I'm consistently hitting L4 in Progear (not without bombing the snot out of the L3 boss like but needs must....). I havent seen the L4 boss yet though. Feels good to be getting further in. Though I've seen later levels and there's zero danger I'll ever make a 1CC. But then again, I dont think i have 1CC'd anything! Re Darius, I dont think i have ever "got" it's appeal. Like, i kinda like the ship designs and boss designs, but the actual game hasnt really ever clicked. Dunno why.
  2. Guessing because they're a conversion of the Namcot Collection. Namcot being the home conversions of arcade games iirc.
  3. Demastered Pacman CE?!?!?!
  4. Back in 2003 I had a load of Cave and Raizing pcbs. I’m talking Guwange, Esprade, Dangun Feveron, Garegga, Bakraid, Batrider. The works. Got them all fairly “cheap” by today’s standards, like i’m pretty sure Guwange was £150 or something. Really regret shipping them on. Shit, come to think of it I had Strider, Turtles, rtype (which was given to me as not working (it was). What was I thinking?!?!

    Progear Level 3 done!!! Whoop whoop! Admittedly i’m not entirely satisfied as I had a whirl with Militant (biplane, quicker) and blazed straight past the L3 boss. Still, feels good to get over that hump. Just need to do it with Gambler now. Who knew that playing a game for more than 30 mins in total makes you improve? L4 is pretty interesting so far.

    Tatsujin was the first ever game I saw and played running on an import megadrive in Microbyte in the Green Market (Newcastle). They had that and Strider... a transformative moment if ever there was one. In actual other shmup news: that flipping L3 Progear boss is an utter prick. He will be defeated soon* though. *if I don’t get distracted by something else.
  7. I do hope she has a gigantic pile of shame like the rest of us.
  8. Ive played mostly on tv with pro cont. However I had an hour or two on a Lite the other day and it was just as good, surprisingly.
  9. I had this: Tomy’s Space Turbo. It was fucking gash. It does look like it should be amazing though. it’s unsurprising that as an adult I have an obsession with arcade machines and plastic tat.
  10. I mean, reading back through the thread, there’s plenty of people who don’t love the game so don’t take my opinion as gospel. But it deffo gives me 1080 vibes in that it feels fun to handle and see what you can get away with, trying to find “short cuts” that usually end in me flying off a cliff. Please dont kill me if you hate it though. Edit: there is one other undeniable reason as to why it’s brilliant: flat shaded polys.

    No idea. I got the code cos I backed the Switch ver (which has been delayed due to Covid). Not selling it btw, for freebs if anyone from this shmup thread wants it (no piss takers though, ta).
