Dragon View – hybrid genre game from SNES

I haven’t played the game myself but when I stumbled upon it, it captured my attention. Because it is a hybrid genre Exploration Adventure+Beat ’em up RPG game.

You are walking over a land and then enter locations which switches the game into an action genre. Sounds familiar, right?

The graphics in this game is pretty nice. The 3D view of the overworld is pretty good for SNES.

The overall gameplay and design decisions are questionable and have downsides from what I read.

I could not write a good review of the game, but just today some channel I am subscribed delivered one. So check it out if you want to know about the game:

Every Version of Castlevania “Vampire Killer”

I am a music lover. Konami brought many cool games and music in it. Castlevania became a classic and has a lot of games in the series. Vampire Killer is a very definitive tune for me as I heard it in childhood in the Vampire Killer on MSX. I did not owned MSX. It was my friend’s mom who worked at some place with computers and we sometime went there and played.

That’s such a great idea to gather all versions of the song in one place. I could not imagine there were so many. This song doesn’t even need covers because there are so many(50+) official versions of it!

Pushing Intellivision limits

Todays developers keep pushing the limits of some old consoles. While it’s common to see it with NES, Intellivision is end of 70’s beginning of 80’s era.

Below are interesting examples of new games on the old console.

Anthropomorphic Force is a vertical scrolling SHMUP with a robot. It has nice music and parallax background movement. The enemies in it are a bit repetitive and basic. However the bosses are huge and quite impressive for such an old console.

The game lands somewhere on the half way to the NES quality which is never seen back in the days. Have you seen Donkey Kong series on Intellivision? Just to have an idea how the games were back then.

The video is blurred. But that one shows more levels and bosses of the game:

Another interesting example is Mario port. It also looks better than any game back then. That guy also working on ports of some other games like Castlevania, Megan and Prince of Persia.

Screenshot unpixelization

This one is old actually. I even forgot who drew it. It was someone from Russian fans community. And it seems I kept forgot to upload it to the gallery? Now I did, I hope it is not a duplicate.

Senjin Aleste (戦刃アレスタ, War Blade Aleste)

Another Aleste Sequel by M2. Published by Sega.

This game supposed to be on Nintendo Switch and some other consoles, but I think it’s still available only on Arcades.

This game is quite different from previous Aleste series. It’s a bullet hell. It maybe has a little bit resemble with visual style. But the gameplay is different.

Player can switch between 4 ships during gameplay. Ships are also counted as live. When player loses a ship he can’t use it anymore.

Miria undressing

A bit weird fan art. Drawn over the Japanese cover art or by looking at it. It looks like Miria removing her clothes.

Found here: https://retrogame.info/main.php?mtit=2&cat=0&gid=223

I don’t know if this is one artist drawing all of these(there are other games fan arts as well) or different people.

I wasn’t sure should I place it to Main Album or into Tiny Things. So I placed into tiny Things.

Casual Pixel Shack

@Francis Coulombe has some kind of a challenge of changing screenshots of the old pixel games into anything else pixel. Upgrade, remix, mashup and whatever. This time he suggested The Guardian Legend in his Casual Pixel Shack.

The results are quite impressive!

I also added these pictures to the Gallery
