That's a brilliant game Bojan. Yes RiKo is right it's a PGM game and I do have that one. I'm very glad I decided to buy it! Played it recently in 2 player mode for the first time which was really good fun. One thing that's different from Metal Slug is that each character has their own unique pet. You can can do a special attack with your pet by holding down the fire button for a while and then releasing it. Also you can press another button to turn your pet into a protective bubble which gives you temporary invulnerability. I'd say in terms of graphics and gameplay Demon Front is as good as Metal Slug. A lot of people say it's inferior but I disagree.

To answer your question about 'The Gladiator' in the other thread that's a different game from 'Gladiator' Parrothead was referring to. The Gladiator is also like Demon Front a PGM game by IGS. I also have that one and it's a great side scroller.

The bad news unfortunately is that these games will probably not be ported to any console. Also because of the advanced protection IGS used with these later PGM titles they are almost impossible to emulate right now and it will probably be a very long time till they are playable on an emulator. A number of the Mame devs were talking about this subject recently and it seems like the only option which might lead to emulation progress is 'decapping' which requires specialist equipment and is very expensive.

It's sad that more people don't get the chance to play these games. If anyone here has a cab or supergun then I'd highly recommend picking up a PGM motherboard. Actually both Demon Front and The Gladiator are available as Jamma PCBs as well as cartridges so you don't need to buy a motherboard to play them.

Here's the whole of stage 1 in Demon Front including the boss.

I woulds so love to play that game, maybe once I am happy enough with my MVS collection ( nearly got all the games I want) I might look into a PGM. Just the cost of the carts is a little pricey which is a bit of a problem for me.

Demon Front looks awesome, thanks for sharing! It's really a pity that you need an original PGM system to play it (I never heard of it until today). I've seen some offers on ebay, but it doesn't seem to be cheap at all. I'll better get my wanted NG games first...

This looks awesome! I've heard about this game, but know little about it.

There is also a similar game made in '03 by Sammy called Dolphin Blue. This is said to be the true sequel to Metal Slug 2. I also know very little about this game, but I read somewhere one of the driving forces (guys) behind the Metal Slug series was involved in the making of Dolphin Blue. I believe both of these games are playable on Demul, but the emulator itself needs to be hacked (and I really know nothing about that!).

I have Dolphin Blue for the Atomiswave...it's a nice game, but has nothing to do with Metal Slug and is not nearly as good (but which game truely is). Dolphin Blue is a bit bland, but it has some nice touches to differentiate itself from all the other Run & Gun games, also there aren't any alternative routes...but the most important thing is, that I think the game is fun to play.
Still have to buy a PGM one day for Demon Front, Knights of Valor and Martial Masters (and maybe Dodonpachi 2)...a very nice piece of hardware that isn't too expensive.

This game looks great. Wow, I wish I had the means to give it a spin, looks like a shit-load of fun. Talk about a homage to the Metal Slug series!

Unfortunately that is the problem the carts are pretty expensive ( for me anyway) although the actual boards seem pretty reasonable. Its maybe a Europe thing but the game do seem pricey on ebay.

I'M IMPRESSED!...
looks like a nice little game, I must admit Thumbs Up

ANY CHANCE...
one of the Admin/Mods could change the name to it's proper name: DEMON FRONT as opposed to DEMON FROST? Everytime I check this thread I half expect it to have been amended already. Sorry to be such a pedantic w*nksh*ft. Cheers!

Bojan4o: Do you want me to change it back?

I´m to blame really, I shouldn´t have changed the spelling even if it was wrong without asking you. Next time I´ll leave it, OK?

NOT REALLY PRIEST...
you can blame me if you prefer? I spotted the typo, and just asked if Priest could change it (cause he's good like that!) as it was irking me a bit... and so he did it for me (well, everyone indirectly - as the game is actually called Demon Front).

So yeah, sorry, it's my 'fault' Bojan...

In case anyone doesn't already know Demon Front has now been emulated by Mame Dev David Haywood. A lot of people have been hoping for this for a long time. It's great that more people will be able to enjoy this superb game.

Yes, at least it has been emulated!! I've been waiting for this title to be emulated for a good while, I'm really glad this finally happened! Thanks for mentioning, Merlin!

According to the guy who achieved this, the rom is now supported in MAME version 0.145u5. Dodonpachi II Bee Storm now seems to be compatible too, I'm really looking forward to play these two titles!

Too bad I'm too busy this evening...

Well this is fantastic news, thanks for sharing!

I've always wanted to play Demon Front as I never had it when I owned a PGM, so now's my chance finally. Beard Cant wait to pay Bee Storm too.

Do you know if any other PGM games have been emulated yet like The Gladiator or any of the Knights of Valors?
