Any SNES Shmup Fans Want to Help Write Guide?

by racketboy Thu Aug 02, 2018 2:14 pm

Good news: Marurun and I actually have a good amount of an early draft done on a lot of the heavy hitters in the SNES shooter library.
We could just use another SNES shmup fan or two to help
* Proof what we already have
* Write some about the games we haven't covered
* Possibly expand some of our existing entries

Here's the games we have done at least pretty well so far:
Space MegaForce / Super Aleste
Axelay
UN Squadron / Area 88
Super E.D.F.: Earth Defense Force (EDF)
Super R-Type

So if you know a decent amount about any of the others and/or are willing to spend some time with them to learn them more, you would be a prime candidate to help.

Let me know what you think!

I wouldn't mind helping out. I've spent a fair amount of time with a few shooters not yet mentioned, including:

Macross: Scrambled Valkyrie
Biometal
Gradius III
R-Type III
The Parodius series

I'm also willing to spend time with pretty much any shooter, if one needs more attention.

Do you still need help ? You guys mentioned some good titles . How do you feel about including pocky and Rocky ? I played a lot aerofighters, and also have stg strike gunners, thunder spirits, raiden, and Darius . Some of these are just ok but they would be worth it especially as a comparison to the their Genesis versions .

I'd be willing to contribute as well. I've already written about BlaZeon and Imperium for HardcoreGaming101 some years back. I can put some info on those in your article and research some other obscure shmups while the others get the more popular titles.
