Has the Parodius series been covered?

I've been reading Retro Gamer for over ten years and can't recall any Parodius in the magazine. I think it would grab the attention of anyone (even those not familiar with it) flipping through an issue.

We did an Ultimate Guide feature on the arcade game in issue 179, but there hasn't been a feature on the entire series yet.

Classic Game (93 - 2011) and Boss Rush (32 - 2006).

Thanks for the info guys! I actually have all three of those issues and must have forgot they were in there >_<

So then I can't help but wonder... which issues have covered the Twinbee games?(Konami's other "cute 'em up" series)

No features for Twinbee but there is Developer Lookback for Konami in issues 53 & 54 that may cover Twinbee.

Twinkle Star Sprites is covered in issues 43 & 128.

Thank you, that was a good read!
I really hope Konami makes at least one of those games digitally available. They're too entertaining for people to miss out on.
