Working on Sega Adventures of Batman and Robin right now . Is there any reason to not use bolos in the game, aside from the one spot where you need to shoot down the little smiling copters all at once for powerups? Also, fuck all of stage 3, hope it ends soon.

>> No.3225012

Always loved my Shinobi and Rolling thunder, even played the shit out of Rolling Thunder on the commodore 64 with its shitty conversion.

Metal Slug has all my love

What about Ghosts n Goblins

Games like that and Shinobi are more platformers that run and gunners.

If you think you are a run and gun fan and haven't played Alien Soldier, you are not.

What about belt scrolling shooters like NARC?

Need to get started on the Jap version. Is the only difference the speed?

Would this be a run and gun or a shmup?

>> No.3225317


That's the Famicom hi no tori, the MSX hi no tori is this:

I guess it's a shmup but it also has elements that remind me of games like pocky and rocky.
It even makes me think of a 2D Sin and Punishment, in a way. You can jump to dodge enemy attacks.
Levels are also maze-like and you need to find keys in order to advance, it's a really weird but addictive game.

>> No.3225341

Honestly I'd just call it a shmup and not bother muddling things with any further sub-classification.

It looks like a pretty straight forward vertical scrolling shmup. Just made to look like it's on the ground.

>> No.3225349


Yeah I agree, I still think it's worth mentioning because even if it's a shmup, it has some hybrid elements, again being able to jump (not just forward/backwards but diagonally too) and the fact the levels are mazes and don't really end, but you need to find the key and the exit, make it a very original, unique game (although it's a lot like Knightmare).

There was another game similar to this on Genesis but I think it was more regular shmup, no jumping and straightforward levels.

>> No.3225351

Er, to clarify, when I say straight forward, I just mean the core gameplay.

Yeah, it has some added gimmicks, but the core gameplay is quintessential shmup.

>> No.3225354

>there is a good section of a level dedicated running over homeless crackheads at fullspeed in your cop car

>> No.3225356

Yeah I see what you mean.

Also, think I'm gonna play it tomorrow. Looks pretty fun.

I no-missed that on Super Hard. It's not really that hard once you learn how to Counter Force well.

>> No.3226292

This game is more Robocop than many Robocop games of the time (especially shitty NES one).
