Die! Die! Die! Death surrounds you in this crazy-hard scrolling shooter. (Easy mode option.)

Really nice horizontal 2d shmup with great music and nicely drawn graphics. The the stages are varied with nice parallax scrolling. However, this game is super difficult. One hit and you are dead and each time you die you are reset back to an earlier checkpoint, and there and not many checkpoints! It feels like a lost pc engine game (sort of like Rayxanber), supports gamepads (I'm using an xbox 360 controller), and supports full-screen with smooth scrolling. Definitely worth it for fans of the style.

ZugyA is very much a score-based game, where you essentially play the same stage over and over, but it continually gets more and more difficult. You can fly in all directions and need to destroy a certain number of bases to reach the next level. It is fun and gets progressively more challenging. However, the game can be a little easy and slow for the first 10 levels, and I haven't found a level skip option (but perhaps there is one and I haven't found it). After that the challenge does start rising. Really I only wish there were more backgrounds. The star field background with colorful novas is beautiful, but it appears to be the only one and it would be nice if it changed every 5 stages or so.

Really nice horizontal 2d shmup with super cute and colorful graphics. The music has that catchy style of 16-bit games, and the stages are varied with nice parallax scrolling. It is fairly easy on the easy difficulty setting, but at hard it becomes a challenge. It feels like a lost super nintendo game (sort of like cotton 100%), supports gamepads (I'm using an xbox 360 controller), and supports fullscreen with smooth scrolling. Definitely worth it for fans of the style.

A very enjoyable 2d action shooter with mechs. In each stage you need to destroy a certain number of stationary enemies in order to unlock the exit. You can switch between two weapons,and after several stages there is a boss and then you go to the next world. It feels much like an early super nintendo game, supports gamepads (I'm using an xbox 360 controller), and supports fullscreen with smooth scrolling.

Your Game Creaters specializes in recreating classic games. Their other title here, Near Fantasy Space, does a fantastic job of making a game like Fantasy Z*ne. With Peace Breaker they have made a game in the sidescrolling action mecha category (much like Target E*rth on the Sega Genesis) and they have done a very good job overall. The graphics are very well done and I'm happy the game offers a full-screen mode with very smooth scrolling graphics. My only complaint is the difficulty, which is punishing to say the least. I remember Target E*rth being hard, but this seems even harder! Still fun!

The game Near Fantasy Space is really a love letter to Sega's Fantasy Z*ne. Essentially, if you like Fantasy Z*ne you will like this game. The creators really nailed both the art style and the music style that made Fantasy Z*ne so unique and these almost feel like the extra stages that were never released. There is a shop in the game with quite a few weapons and all of them are very appropriate. My only wish is for an easier mode or a level select (unless I somehow missed this?).

If you are a fan of colorful scrolling shooter or action RPGs you should definitely pick this title up... especially at this price. The artwork is not hi-res, but it is wonderfully done. There is an RPG aspect to the game (talking to various characters to unlock new areas), but so far it seems that you should be able to get through it even if you don't speak japanese. My only wish is that it had some sort of vsync option, because there can be visible screen tearing. Still, at this price you can't go wrong!

Mission to Depths is a side-scrolling action platformer. I have not yet completed the game, but based on what I have read it appears to have three worlds, each with a major end boss at the finish of the world. That may not sound like a lot at first, but I can say the first world is huge, with a massive end boss. Based on my play time so far, I believe this is a good value for the price. The game moves very smoothly and the animation and artwork are great. This almost feels like a lost SNES game at a higher resolution. My only issue is that there does not appear to be a way to fun the game in full-screen mode. If they could add a patch to offer a full screen option, that would be great!

This game definitely channels the spirit of the older 16-bit games. The graphics aren't the absolute best, but they are very nice and have a 16-bit spirit to them. There is also a nice level of parallax scrolling throughout the game. There is a system where you earn multiple weapons and can switch between them, almost like a slower-paced Thunder Force game. There are multiple difficulty settings and I think even people who are pretty good at shooters will find some challenge at the higher settings. Overall worth a purchase.

This game is simply one of the best shmups around. It looks beautiful, everything runs extremely smoothly, and it features a complex system with bullet patterns that are nearly at a CAVE level of quality. The music is also wonderful and deserves to be listened to on its own. There is a shop system where you can buy items and you earn the money for this through playing the game. This give a nice incentive for reply, although the base game is good enough you shouldn't need one! At this price you should not pass this up!
