Hydorah (82.1Mb)

Hydorah is a game designed for classic shoot em up players, who still love clean designs and challenging adventures. 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 difficulty level, based on the 80’s standards. It can be very hard, but with every beaten level there will come the glory.

The whole game takes obvious influence from Gradius, Castlevania or R-Type, but also from other classics treated worse by the time: Turrican, Enforcer, Space Manbow, Hellfire, Guardian, Hydefos, Armalyte and many others…

Take the controls of your ship and prepare to die! Continue reading

Week 38: Naginata Destruction


Today’s game is an indie game titled Naginata Destruction. Naginata is an excellent freeware shmup. Though a little on the short side, the graphics and gameplay are enough to keep you busy for quite some time with this game. I’m extremely impressed with this game and think the developer could easily ask for some money for it.

The game tells you the controls use z and x to fire, however I was able to use the mouse buttons to fire as an altertanitve. I’ve spent some time playing this game this weekend and am warning you that you will probably not make it far in the game until after you’ve died some 5 times. It takes awhile to get used to how quickly the screen crawls on you and the different kinds of obstacles/enemies that are involved. In my honest opinion I give the game a 9/10 and proudly dub it as one of the best freeware games I’ve come across.

Once the game loads, you’ll be asked to create an I.D. Once you’ve created your I.D., you then have to click exit to advance to the game’s main screen. Navigating the game and menu are both done with the keyboard. The download site is in Chinese, but the game itself is in English. The download comes in at not quite 40kb, so it’s an extremely small download. I have provided an excellent video via youtube…make sure you click the HQ button next to the volume to get a better idea of the graphics.
