685th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Iphone Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Taito Publisher: Taito Finally, this is the last of the rushed iOS games – everything else has an off-iOS alternative or just works.

681st played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1992 Developer: Konami Publisher: Konami Here’s another random shooter drawn from the virtual bucket. I genuinely struggle to differentiate these most of the time. This one comes from the stable of Gradius and Salamander, which I struggled to introduce last time. Here […]

672nd played so far Genre: Adventure/Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Playstation 3 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Naughty Dog Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment On our first outing in the Uncharted series, we had a good time exploring some great venues, but had some issues with the shooting in the game. We felt strengthened hearing it would […]

664th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Playstation 3 Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Incognito Entertainment/SCE Santa Monica Studio Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment I’ve simultaneously wanted to play this game and was dreading to do so. Warhawk is a multiplayer shooter, with no singleplayer mode or content. That makes it harder to review, […]

661st played so far Genre: Shoot-Em Up Platform: Playstation 1 Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Irem Publisher: Irem/Agetec/Sony Today we go back to the world of R-Type, a side-scrolling shooter that is more or less just that.

654th played so far Genre: Strategy/Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: PC Year of Release: 1996 Developer: Legend Entertainment Publisher: Accolade There are a bunch of hybrid games, that combine two genres that don’t normally fit together, but manage it with their own spin. Prior to starting Star Control 3, I’d already seen parts of its predecessor […]

644th played so far Genre: Strategy/Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Various Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Ubisoft Paris/Red Storm Entertainment Publisher: Ubisoft The meaning of ‘strategy’ is, as so many genres, quite broad. While we’d normally think of an RTS like Command & Conquer or the Civilization series, for Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 it refers […]

640th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Playstation Year of Release: 1997 Developer: Square Publisher: Square/Sony Computer Entertainment Going on to knock out some of these Playstation games (I was really behind.

634th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1987 Developer: Irem Publisher: Irem As we go back to the eighties, we get to one more of the many, many side scrolling shooters. I don’t mind them too much – they are fun enough, often having something good to look at […]

630th played so far Genre: Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: PC Year of Release: 2004 Developer: ABA Games I have ragged on Tempest derivatives before, as often they seem to add some slightly fancier graphics (with still a retro look) without really making the game feel that much better. Torus Trooper derives from that formula yet […]
