Damn is this the old Neo Geo game ? Just watched it on youtube, looks a great retro shoot em up.

Hope SNK keep releasing these !! Hope the controls work well (ideally relative touch)

Sweet, i'm a huge SNK-PLAYMORE supporter!!
I hope in a long series of NEOGEO portings,
the premise at the moment is more than appetizing...

Whoa, SNK has been getting a lot of my money lately what with Metal Slug 3 just recently and now this. Looks like an awesome shmup.

Here's some gameplay from the arcade version:

Top marks to SNK for making this $2.99 which sounds good.

Wait for people to moan about the graphics looking pixely/blocky etc

Hope SNK keep this up, Metal Slug the other week, now a great retro shooter, more of the same please SNK !

Another title that is frequently in my 6-slot MVS.

Great SHMUP, and the price is nice!

I used to play this one when I was a college student in Nagasaki. I couldn't believe the opening cutscene was being produced on 1990, 16-bit hardware. Game itself is good. Like an easier R-Type. Also, anyone who wants to know more about the neo-geo itself, I made this video:

Good background on the system.

Yep the Neo Geo was great, way too expensive for me when it came out ! Started 'discovering' their games via MAME years back.

Hope SNK keep releasing their games, i'll be buying all of them, they've done some great arcade classics
