Title Ikari Warriors Game Type Shoot-em-Up Publisher Elite Players 1 or 2 Compatibility OCS (All with JST Patch) HD Installable Yes, with patch Submission Tom Waddington (firstname.lastname@example.org) Review To give you some idea of the kind of level of sophistication to expect from this game, it's a conversion of an arcade machine from 1986. You and a chum march your tiny Rambo clones up the screen shooting revolutionaries, throwing grenades at fortifications and occasionally driving almost impervious tanks. The graphics are bright but look to be using about 16 colours, the sound is very 8-bitty and the gameplay about as simplistic as it gets. Compared with almost any other vertical scroller it should be rubbish. However, it somehow manages to be tremendous fun. Despite numerous clones, this is still the best of the soldier-based shoot-`em-ups. The closest anyone got to equalling it was Core Design's Warzone, which was slow and unsatisfying by contrast. Like many ancient games, the crap graphics almost excuse the basic gameplay and allow you to concentrate on the fun, which is perhaps a lesson many publishers today would do well to learn.
