Search and Rescue - Game of the Week
Murikov
Welcome to the Game of the Week!

Long before the release of ID's First Person Shooter "Doom" and even before Konami's Arcade hit "Aliens", there already was a shooting Arcade game with an abandoned alien space base as story background. In 1989, one year before the Neo Geo's official release, SNK developed "S.A.R. - Search and Rescue" and brought it into the U.S. as well.

Despite its title, "S.A.R." has nothing to do with any Rescue. In fact it rather should be called "Search and Destroy", as in this game there's lots of blood and alien corpses. Recently the game has been released on PSN and PSP, so that's another reason to get it.

Find out in Priest's High Score Challenge if you've got what it takes to "search and rescue" and then share your opinion about this game. Lock and load, lads!

I feel obligated to comment since I suggested SAR for Game of the Week and no one has commented. However, I have not played the game yet. It looks pretty damn awesome, and I'd especially love to try out 2 player mode.

I'm not sure why Ikari Warriors is so much more famous than this, but I'll bet it has something to do with the NES port. At least we here at NGFL are giving SAR a little bit of love. I mean, it got on the GOTW list before Ikari did, so that's cool.

I actually found SAR way better than Ikari Warrios, in fact it's even superior to Ikari III. I played it a few months ago in 2 Player CoOp mode on MAME, and I've got to say that this title is almost at the same quality level of Prehistoric Isle in 1930.

The gameplay is pretty gory for an Arcade game, there are indeed lots of exploding zombies, aliens or floors bathed in human blood. This game's setting and atmosphere indeed do credit to 'Spacebase shooter' games like Doom (which came out a few years later).

To put it in a nutshell, give this game a go. Although it's quite a short experience, it's pretty fun and more than enough for an enjoyable evening.

Never played this. Looks awesome. Might try this game out with my nephew in the near future, looks fun.

BTW, in MAME can you use a stick to control, or do I need to have a track ball?

Just like Ikari Warriors S.A.R. uses a rotary stick as well, so in MAME you just need to configure the turning directions (left and right). In the configuration menu of MAME the rotary commands are 'Positional Analog Dec' for turning left and 'Positional Analog Inc' for turning right.

I've played it with my USB Neo Geo stick as well, just assign the turning directions to certain buttons of your stick.

Wow, I never knew this existed, and I really enjoy run 'n' gun shooters... It looks good IMO. I'll add it to my list of games to play one day...
