    Forgotten Old Games – Wild Guns 

    Hi everyone! Today is… Thursday!?… It´s an awesome day for another awesome forgotten old game and this week´s game is Wild Guns!

    Wild Guns is an awesome explosive shooting game where you can choose between two gunslingers, Clint the cowboy and Annie the lady. The plot?! I have NO IDEA, I just know that is a mix between cowboys and robots. Yes, cowboys and robots. Can you even imagine how awesome this is?! Natsume knows how to do good stuff such as Robot ninjas, Cowboys and robots, and yeah, robots everywhere, that´s the shit!

    Released in 1994, Wild Guns is  pretty similar to arcade shooters like Time Crisis and Virtual Cop in Wild guns you have to shoot enemies that are constantly showing up trying to shoot you. Besides shooting enemies in Wild Guns you also have to evade enemy fire by running left or right and you can also jump in order to make a quick dodge.

    To shot an enemy you just have to put your cross hair over it and press Y to shoot, you can also hold down Y to make a continuous shot, you can also throw a lasso to stun your enemies by pressing Y multiple times. As I mentioned before, you can dodge enemy fire by running or jumping with B and you can also perform a double jump pressing B again in midair.

    You have to keep an eye on those speech bubbles like “LOOK OUT”, when you see one of those you have to jump or evade something immediately. While you´re shooting enemies, you´re also can pick up items that gives you extra points or even new weapons like shotgun, machine-gun or even a grenade launcher. You can pick up a super bomb item too, when you got this item you can plant  dynamite on your enemies blowing every enemy on-screen.

    Wild Guns has 6 stages and during these stages you have a time counter and when the time is over a boss appear. Killing enemies makes time go faster. The boss fights are the highlight of this game, generally bosses are huge mechs with with a good amount of challenge, so “stay sharp, son”.

    Wild Guns graphics are only AMAZING. Seriously, everything is heavily detailed and well drawn; characters design, enemies design and background design are awesome! Lots of futuristic mech stuff mixed with old west really makes this game shine.

    The soundtrack is awesome too, they have that amazing western style mixed up with some intense action themes, I really recommend that you look for it.

    In closing comments, Wild Guns is the most fun shooting game that I´ve played during the 16 bit era, I found it even better than Virtual Cop and I´m a hardcore Virtual Cop fan, so if you looking for some explosive action shooting game, go to Carson City to have a chat with Clint and Annie.

    Forgotten Old Games – The Ninja Warriors Again 

    Hi everyone, it´s me again Danilo and this week I´m gonna review… The Ninja Warriors Again! … No I´m not gonna review it “again”… That’s actially the real game title. I know. Again.

    The year was 1994 and to be a Ninja was the shit! Every kid in that time wanted to be a Ninja and game developers knew that. So, in order to bring us  the ultimate ninja beat´m up of all time, Natsume (again.. man I really love Natsume games…) brought to us The Ninja Warriors Again*!!!

    *The “Again” in title refers that this game is a sequel of an old arcade game called The Ninja Warriors, which, actually was rather different from The Ninja Warriors Again. Again, how amazing is it to use the word Again as a sequel sign?

    Ninja Warriors Again takes places in a near future,when the US has been oppressed by a military government ruled by a man called Banglar. In order to stop this evil dictator a resistance group created three ninja androids and send the to the battle. (Yes! They´re ninjas and they´re robots! That’s like an explosion of awesomeness.)

    First you can select one of the three ninjas, each ninja has different abilities and skills. They´re:

    Ninja (that’s a Ninja whose name is Ninja. I’m just lacking the words to describe design and marketing choices in this game): The most strong of all three and also the slowest. He attacks with punches, kicks and a nunchaku.

    Kunoichi: She´s the balanced character of this game. She can perform attacks with two short blades.

    Kamaitachi: He´s the fastest of the three ninjas, he attacks with he´s twin blades attached to his arms.

    Basic moves are:

    D-PAD – moves your character and crouch

    Y BUTTON – attack and pick up items

    B BUTTON – jump

    X BUTTON – giga attack (A powerful attack that hit all enemies on-screen)

    You also can perform basic actions like:

    block – hold on Y

    crouch walk – while crouching go left or right

    dodge – while blocking just hit left or right

    grab/throw – walk toward an enemy and press left/right + Y

    During the game, you´re gonna face lots of enemies on-screen trying to kick your ass. The gameplay is very similar to lots of beat´m up games. I think that this game´s mechanics  resembles a lot Mighty Morphin Power Rangers from Snes, another great beat´m up game from Natsume.

    Besides punching enemies in the face, you can also pick up items like energy items that recovery your health. You gonna need it after all there´s a good amount of different enemies and bosses.

    She´s a badass

    Ninja Warriors Again features nine levels with lots of enemies and bosses.

    Graphics are really impressive; I still remember the first time I´ve played this game and I was like “my god, this looks like an arcade game!!” All characters are big and very detailed, everything is heavily detailed with fluid animations, rich backgrounds and special effects. I think that this game is one of the most beautiful games on Snes.

    Music is also awesome, the intro theme give-me chills, it´s freaking epic! You must hear this by yourself to feel the energy!


    So if you´re a ninja fan and also a robot fan… Then, you MUST play this game! It´s a masterpiece, Ninja Warriors Again the ultimate robot ninja action beat´m up of all time!
