Oh man, when I first saw that image, I thought you had played a game I spent a ton of time with as a kid, Rabbit Transit. Rabbit Transit was a game for the odd peripheral the Supercharger, which had you put a cart with a 3.5mm jack into a tape recorder that you put the actual game into. What a wild time.

I just got the Supercharger!

I made a little wishlist, as I always do once I obtain new hardware, but didn't include Rabbit Transit as it seems a bit hard to find. Is it any good?

also, lol @ the fact that someone made this list:

It's not too bad, the music will wear you down for sure. It alternates between a Frogger-lite level where you are trying to get the rabbit to the bottom of the screen while avoiding the snakes and what not and you can only hop diagonally. The alternate levels are a shifted perspective and has you hopping on platforms to change the color. Later levels of this you have to hit each platform more than once.

Agreed. Great reviews, Bone.

One correction, however,..first generation Apollo games had labels in lots of different colors. (Guess who has all of them (except Lockjaw, of course)? :lol: ). They standardized their labels in their second wave of releases.

prfsnl_gmr -- The Variant Master!

Ya know, I should have figured that out on my own.... When I said Apollo had eleven games I got that figure from the AtariAge list... And some games were listed twice so, yeah, derp. I've only seen blue!

42. Bit.Trip Fate - Wii - March 22

Image

Bit.Trip Fate followed Runner's example of having more detailed environments and models than the first three games in the series. This time, the game is a sort of side scrolling on rails shooter; Commander Video can move back and forth along a line that often zigzags up and down like an EKG, but he can only move along that line as the screen steadily scrolls to the right. I've not played many shooters quite like it, and while it gets pretty tough, it's ridiculously fun.

Image

Whereas most of the Bit.Trip games (save Runner) took place over three giant levels, Fate is broken into three environments with two levels in each. The first level's no problem. The second level isn't too bad. The third level is where the difficulty starts to increase. By the fourth level, the level itself isn't insurmountable, but the boss is no walk in the park. The last two levels, however, get brutal. It's not unfair, mind you, but the game's not pulling any punches by the time you get to the last environment.

Image

Music stays central to the game, but like Void, it takes a back seat to the timing of the gameplay here. Fate has all the intensity and tension of a standard shmup, but the limited range of movement adds a new element that changes how you have to play. It's a fantastic take on the series, and when coupled with the distinct "Bit.Trip" visual and musical style, it's an experience I haven't seen truly or well replicated in any other game.

Image

Bit.Trip Fate doesn't manage surpass Runner's greatness and addictive nature, but it's an excellent game nonetheless and is second only to Runner in the Bit.Trip series. It's extremely challenging in the latter levels of the game, but it's totally worth it. The visuals and music are superb, and the Wii controls work perfectly. Like with Runner, Fate is an absolute must-play.

Super Bomberman R.


Music sounds mid 90s 32-bit era midi. That's a big plus. You can play as so many Konami characters. Dracula, Goemon, Simon, Anubis from ZOE, Pyramide Head, Jehuty from ZOE, Reiko, Vic Viper and more. I mainly played Vic Viper and Jehuty. The game has a Dreamcast era vibe to it. Really enjoyed the story mode. Not tried online yet. Hey if you don't have a Switch no worries it's coming to PS4 and Xbox this May!
