Conrad may have thought he escaped from the alien Morphs, but he thought wrong. After fighting his way through their world the first time, in a game called Flashback, he went into a cryogenic sleep aboard his little space vessel. For 50 years he drifted aimlessly in space, waiting to be found. The good news is that Conrad was found and beamed up on an alien ship; the bad news is that the alien race that found him is none other than his enemy: the Morphs. Once again, he must escape from their hostile world and regain his freedom that he had fought so hard for.

FadeToBlack-01cFade To Black is a sequel to the 2D classic Flashback. It picks up 50 years after the latter did, and uses the same character. Where this sequel differs is that it features 3D graphics in a 3D world, allowing players to immerse themselves even more in Conrad’s struggle for freedom. The game features over 13 levels filled with intricate puzzles, sub-levels and missions, highly detailed textures and graphics, lots of items to interact with and a good amount of action.

Features:
# 13 levels
# A variety of sub-levels and challenging puzzles
# Detailed 3D rendered characters
# Simplified controls and game-play

The year is 2071, the aggressive Kesh Rhan aliens have already destroyed the human colonies on Mars and Pluto, and now plan to wipe out all humans from Earth as well. You play as Jessica Darkhill, lieutenant and most skilled pilot of the Orbital Defense Forces. The counter-attack you are about the launch is the last hope to save the Earth of chaos.

Chaos Control is a sci-fi themed rail shooter which puts the player inside the cockpit of a fighter ship. Although the spaceship flight is automated, the player may target freely using an on-screen reticule, timing their shots so that the fighter’s guns do not overheat. Targets across the game’s four levels include mech suits, other spaceships and virtual reality constructs, most of which will return fire in an effort to drain the player’s shields.

ChaosControl-01dThere are no bonuses or re-charge power-ups for these shields, and play must restart from the beginning of the level if the player’s ship is destroyed. Enemy positions are pre-determined and unchanging. This – in combination with fixed flight-paths – means that the player can seek to learn the game’s deployment pattern for each level, defeating them through trial and error.

It’s the year 2071. Only one space fighter has the courage, composure and razor-sharp reflexes to eliminate the savage Kesh Rhan extraterrestrials…ace pilot Jessica Darkhill.

As Lieutenant Darkhill, your missions encompass heat-stopping battles in four (more…)

Capcom Generation Vol 4.: Kokou no Eiyuu contains three different “Run ‘n Gun”-style shooting games.

* Commando (Senjo no Ookami)
* Gun.Smoke
* Mercs (Senjo no Ookami II)

– Commando is a vertically scrolling shoot ’em up arcade game released in 1985. Its influence can be seen in several later games in the genre (Who Dares Wins, Ikari Warriors, Rambo: First Blood Part II…).

It was released for several platforms, including the Commodore 64, Amstrad CPC, MSX, ZX Spectrum, Intellivision, Atari 2600, Atari 7800, Amiga, Nintendo Entertainment System, Acorn Electron, BBC Micro and PC. Versions of the game also appear on Capcom Classics Collection for the PlayStation 2, Xbox, and PlayStation Portable, and Activision Anthology for the PlayStation 2.

CapcomRetroGameCollection-04b– Gun Smoke is a vertical scrolling shooter arcade game created by Capcom in 1985 (its author is Yoshiki Okamoto). The game, which has a Western theme, centers around a character named (in the NES version) Billy Bob, a bounty hunter who is after vicious criminals of the Wild West. This game is considered to be one of the hardest Capcom games ever made.

Whereas Commando is a run and gun game, this game is a scrolling shooter in which the screen scrolls upward automatically and players only have three ways to shoot, using three buttons for left, right, and center shooting. However, a player can also change the way the gunman shoots through button combinations. A player can still die by getting shot or struck by enemies like in Commando but improve protection by getting special items, including a horse, for protection up to three hits; boots, for speed of movement; bullets, for faster shots; and rifles, for shot length. These items are found by shooting barrels and rifles, boots, and bullets can stock up to five. (more…)

Capcom Generation Vol. 1: Gekitsuiou no Jidai focuses on Capcom’s “1940s” series and contains the first three games of the series.

* 1942
* 1943: The Battle of Midway
* 1943 Kai: Midway Kaisen

– 1942 is a vertically scrolling shoot ’em up made by Capcom that was released for the arcade in 1984. It was the first game in the 194x series, followed by 1943: The Battle of Midway.

1942 is set in the Pacific theater of World War II. Despite the game being created by a Japanese company and staff, the goal is to reach Tokyo and destroy the entire Japanese air fleet. The player pilots a plane (dubbed the “Super Ace”, although its appearance is clearly that of a Lockheed P-38 Lightning), and has to shoot down enemy planes. Besides shooting, the player can also perform a Roll or “loop-the-loop” to avoid enemy fire.

CapcomRetroGameCollection-01aThe game was later ported to the NES (developed by Micronics), MSX, NEC PC-8801 and Game Boy Color. It was ported by the European games publisher Elite Systems to the Amstrad CPC, ZX Spectrum and Commodore 64. The game was included as part of Capcom Classics Collection for the Xbox and PlayStation 2 in 2005.

– 1943: The Battle of Midway (1943: Midway Kaisen in Japan) is a vertical scrolling shooter arcade game released by Capcom in June 1987. Capcom released their own port for the NES, but the game has also been ported to the Atari ST, the ZX Spectrum, the Amstrad CPC, the Commodore 64 and the Amiga. In 2005 it was re–released for Xbox and PlayStation 2 as part of Capcom Classics Collection. The overall faithfulness and quality of execution of these third party versions varies greatly. 1943 is the second game in the 1940s series, following the successful 1942.

– 1943 Kai is the Japanese version of 1943. (more…)
