DotEMU sale (all games, I think), Raiden Legacy 4.99->1.99




Per the description, DotEmu is having a sale, and not just for Raiden Legacy. This was the first of their offerings that I saw the sale price for, and this is a good deal at 1.99 so I chose to post this one in particular. I'm not digging through their catalog to list every game they have on sale, but anyone - feel free to add games to this thread.

Best retro arcade shooter and you get 4 raiden games for a price of only 2 $ ; not to mention all raiden games have huge variety of different fighter jets, one has even 20 + different jets if I remember correctly.

Wow... I may have to take advantage of the Raiden Legacy deal.

Here's what I could find with reduced prices:

Earth Defense Force $1.99 -> $0.99
Govellius - The Valley of Doom $1.99 -> $0.99
Nicky Boom 2 $1.99 -> $0.99
Rod Land: A Fairy Tale $1.99 -> $0.99
The Last Express $4.99 -> $1.99

Looks like the others haven't dropped in price.

The description in the store made it sound like they will all be on sale...maybe the trigger won't be pulled at the same time, ala Ravensberger. How does this game look, seeing as how they were released in multiple resolutions?

I'm still trying to decide what to get. Raiden Legacy seems a lock... maybe Govellius too. I already grabbed The Last Express a while back.

I got this day 1. It is truly old school, my problem with these games is they are pretty hard. You probably won't spend more then 5 mins on the first 2 Raidens, the second 2 are just so much better. Not like modern day SHUMPS, not for everybody. If your a Raiden fan you already have this. It is a great port, good for retro fans or big shooter fans.
Bottom line: worth your $2

Went ahead with Raiden Legacy. Installed size is 159MB. Played a little of Raiden. Pretty awesome stuff if you like these old shmups. I could have easily dumped $2 into an old arcade cabinet for a few minutes of fun... so $2 well spent getting 4 full games with tons of options.

Raiden Legacy is awesome! It has instantaneous touch due to numerous conversations with dotemu in the main thread, but plays awesome with an icade core joystick amd hdmi!

Joystick plays so well, feels just like being in the arcades. Attached screenshot.

Does anyone know if Earth defense force is icade compatible? Blazing star is also icade, but don't know if it is on sale.

You gotta get an icade core joystick. Played it yesterday with
My iphone and icade core with hdmi will work great for you. Especially for this game.

Read the hdmi thread tomorrow, I will be doing a writeup of using the icade core with an iphone or itouch with hdmi.

Attached icade core joystick with iphone 4 with Phoenix HD.

I know how you really like Plasma sky. The icade play is awesome with 5 icade speed settings! Should be out maybe this weekend!!!
