|From 8ing ("Eighting"), a vertical shooter pretty strongly reminiscent of Raizing's "Brave Blade" (see entry 773), particularly in terms of the PS1-ish 3D graphical style. It doesn't have the medal-juggling of that title, thankfully, but for some reason I still didn't care for it much. The ground wobbles funny below your ship when you criss-cross the screen, for one thing, and...eh, I don't know, I just wasn't that impressed.|
You get plenty big enough guns, certainly, and lots of wingmen. But other than that it didn't feel particularly special to me in any way. Maybe I'm just dead inside.
|Oh wait, was this the game where you pick up point powerups of logarithmically-increasing amounts, until you miss one and then the amount resets? I think it may have been. Better than Brave Blade's constant active juggling, but still somewhat confining.|| |
