Offspring of Gradius, Turrican, Space Manbow and More Now Available

Love child of a lost decade

The name of the game is Hydorah and, if you’ve been keeping tabs on the sweet little demo, you’ll be pleased as exploding shrapnel to know that the full game is done:

If you fought the Bydo and shooted the Bacterians in the core, you are ready for the war against the evil god Hydorah. Choose the path to follow and fight planet by planet against hordes of meroptians. The game features lots of short and intense levels with fantasy spacial landscapes, unlockable weapons and secrets, and a large library of enemies and bosses. There is a single dificulty level, based on the 80’s standards. It can be very hard, but with every beaten level there will come the glory.

It’s late here, so I had only a quick go, but it is fantastic and surely some wise publisher will snap this game up ASAP and toss it on WiiWare before everyone gets wise to its obvious charms…for free:


Mr.Cat (in the comments) reminds me of G-Type, another homage to classic, ’80s, shooters, albeit this one is a very obvious hybrid of R-Type and Gradius:

    You ever try G-Type? Fantastic game. It’s very literally a hybrid of Gradius and R-Type, with the play mechanics of both.

      Yeah, G-Type is a good game 🙂
