If you haven't already, you should try Banpresto Mazinger Z... IMHO a very good vertical shoot'em up with the Go Nagai's mecha robots (Mazinger Z, Great Mazinger and Grendizer)... ;)

Thanks for the tip, I will look after that game. But if shooters or shmups there is two awesome title I must mention:

Ether Vapor (the Remaster version)
AsteBreed

Both of these are dynamic 3D scrolling shooters for PC. Totally worth a look.  :smilie:

One of my favorite new additions is Alligator Hunt.  If you aren't familiar with this game, don't judge it solely on the name, it has nothing to do with hunting alligators. :)  Its actually quite similar to Blood Bros. & Cabal, but even more addictive.  If you want to get hooked on an awesome classic game, this is it.  It gets even better if you play it with a friend, but its still really great with just one player.

best regards & happy classic-gaming,

I've been playing NeoGeo's Zupapa lately. The game is pretty cute and fun. :) I even just posted a video about it to my YouTube channel!

I finished 2 loops of the best version*(IMO) of one of my favorite games ever - Ghouls 'n Ghosts (Dai MakaiMura) on SGX (PCE) and recorded a bit of my duel with lucifer and the awesome ending cutscene w/ baddie introduction.  This was probably the 30th or 40th time I've done this with this version of the game, so no tricks/cheats/etc were used here.

Check out that awesome music :)

I love Ghouls 'n Ghosts. ^-^ I managed to clear the two loops of the arcade version on the hardest difficulty without tricks/cheats once, but recently I tried again and failed miserably. I guess I'm too rusty at it now. :redface:

Its a wicked game, even on normal difficulty :) Usually if I stop playing for more than a few months I have to do a few practice runs before I can do the full 2 loop run.    Last night I did the first one (GNG) without any pause breaks, Not bring able to shoot up throws me off for a few minutes.. d'oh! :)

Ghouls'n Ghosts and Ghosts'n Goblins were/are very good and very hard games... but, maybe, the top was reached by Super Ghouls'n Ghosts, "super" in all respects, from beauty to difficulty! ;)

Tonight its Guwange, its basically if you took Ikari warriors and made it a shooter which takes place in some evil hellish world where you have to kill everyone because they are zombies.. or something.  and giant cat-spiders.  If you don't know this game, play it, its one of my favorites.  that's all..

*(except for saving the end of the first loops to continue later)

Hello folks....
I'm playing Street Fighter: The Movie.
Yeaaah, I never played before, by mere prejudice. But I tried and guess what? I liked the game!
I saw the movie too, when I was a kid, in the school with my friends.
A little nostalgia in all of that.

Hi ! ;)
I saw the movie too... IIRC in Italy it came out during the 1995... The movie (IMHO) was a very bad transposition of the original game idea, but the game could be "a whole different story" (it should be the only "Street Fighter" game with digitized characters) ! ;) At present Street Fighter the Movie isn't emulated by FB Alpha, the "Incredible Technology 32" board is not between the supported arcade boards... who knows, maybe in a near or far future! ;)

Last game I played on FBA was Great Mahou Daisakusen (known as Dimahoo in the west). It's a pretty hard manic shooter and the score system is rather complex at first, but it looks, sounds and plays really well. I like it. :)

I posted a video about it to my YouTube channel yesterday, btw!

Great Mahou Daisakusen is up there on my top shooters list, I really like the charge shot & collecting items aspect to it :)
