Yep I have my own battered copy of Super Aleste, great game never quite finished it - I always preferred Axelay and Area 88 though on the snes. All great examples of the genre and proof that the megadrive wasn't the only 16bit console that could do great shooters

Super Aleste is well worth finishing. Utterly fantastic game with some awesome boss music though I think the Japanese version might have more levels. Still isn't better than Axelay in my opinion, that had great graphics, music, weapons and bosses all in 1 game. My favorite Shmup for the Snes bar none.

I really love Super Aleste, the best schmup I've played so far... though I haven't played many. Do you think I'll like Axelay?

I know what you're saying the parallax scrolling on the second level is amazing, a great game that deserves a sequel

You'll probably like it mate it has horizontal and vertical scrolling levels, be wary though it's greatness is assured but it can be quite expensive if you want a boxed complete PAL copy (the PAL version didn't have a huge production run). Unboxed PAL copies are much cheaper, I was once lucky and got a copy of the Jap version unboxed £2.99 inc P+P. It's also much more difficult than Aleste from the get go, the first level is quite tricky and i think the second level is actually easier!!

I'll add that to my list then... and who knows, I might get lucky and find a boxed copy for a good price... :wink:

You wouldn't care to sell me one of those copies of Pitfall II would you? Or trade it for a couple of Master System or SNES games? :D

My small but quite nice Saturn import shmups collection...

Image

DoDonPachi, Twinkle Star Sprites, Oshaberi Parodius, Space Invaders (duh!), Radiant Silvergun, and the particularly splendid Sexy Parodius.

Unfortunately those cracks on Space Invaders and RSG happened in transit - but the games are fine. Just noticed that grubby mark on RSG - must take a wet wipe to that!

I have a nice white Japanese Saturn to play them on too.

On my wanted list:

Soukyugurentai,
Pop N Twinbee Deluxe Pack
Gradius Pack
Thunderforce V


I've just ordered Dezaemon 2 for the Saturn which lets you build you own shooter (it has 5 built-in to tinker with but can make one from scratch). There's a good FAQ in gamefaqs.com to make sense of the japanese menus. Looking forward to that.
