The horrendously difficult Last Hope or the tumultuous Fast Striker were not your cup of tea? Then why don't we take a look at NGDEV's third addition to the Neo Geo library, a trusty Run 'n Gun? But before you're expecting a genuine Metal Slug clone be warned: This time it's more about exploring and collecting, everything with a touch of Eurostylish gameplay from the Amiga days!
Pay this gorgeous piece of MEGS some credit and join our discussion in our weekly GOTW thread. If you're lucky to own the Dreamcast or even the MVS/AES version of the game, then why not enlisting for a High Score Challenge?
It's already cold outside and snow is slowly dominating the landscape. And with fresh snowfall the winter sports season is about to begin as well. So why don't we take a look at the only Snowboarding game for the Neo Geo Pocket? Grab your board and find out if this game does merit to the real thing or its other installments on the PSX...
You know how it works, discuss it and tell us how much you love/hate this rather rarely seen NGPC title. And if you want to put your virtual snowboarding abilities to the test, demand immediately a High Score Challenge!
It would take 10 long years to bring an end to the KoF series on the Neo Geo, a home console / arcade hardware originally released in 1990. Since then the series gained a huge popularity and was considered as one of Street Fighter's biggest competitors. SNK Playmore paid tribute to the franchise by releasing The King of Fighters 2003, the final KoF developed for the Neo Geo.
Let's discuss the game in our weekly discussion thread, according to customs. And why don't we ask for a High Score Challenge for the very last The King of Fighters released on the Neo Geo?
Ikari Warriors II: Victory Road - Game of the Week
After the huge success of Ikari Warriors in 1986 it was only a matter of time until Ralf Jones and Clark Still were going to hit the road again. Or more precisely the Victory Road, that's the second title of the second Ikari game. It actually took SNK less than one year to live up to their success with Ikari I, so you can't say they weren't busy in 1986. But does this make Ikari II a better game?
So is Victory Road actually able to hold a candle to its predecessor, despite its short time being in development? Share your opinions in this week's discussion thread, or ask for a High Score Challenge if you've got what it takes.
Alright, I'm back and with me the traditional Game of the Week! This time we're turning our attention to the ugly duckling of the Fatal Fury series, a pariah of its time. It was in 1999, during the period when SNK's tragic destiny was already foreseeable, that the orginal team made once more use of the Hyper Neo Geo 64 developer kit to provide Terry Bogard and his friends a polygonal outfit...
Ever played this game on the HNG64 or the port on the PSX? It's also worth mentioning that it was also released on Sony's PSN shop, so there are still some ways to get this title on the cheap. While you're reading this, why not giving your 2 cents into the discussion thread?
The King of Fighters EX: Neo Blood / Howling Blood - Game of the Week
You thought SNKP would only revive the Metal Slug series on the Gameboy Advance? Then you were badly wrong, because the good old King of Fighters series were also doomed to be a part of Nintendo's handheld universe. The results were Neo Blood and Howling Blood, both developed by the tiny studios Artoon and Sun-Tec. By the way, Howling Blood was also released for Nokia's N-Gage as well (now that's what I call an obscure platform)!
Ever heard of these ones or even played them? Then let us know in our traditional weekly discussion thread. Because both games don't really have a scoring system, a Speed Run would be the only possibility for a HSC. If you're still interested, let Murikov or Priest know!
What do you do as a game developer if a previous game of yours is more or less successful? Right, just do a sequel! Saurus took in 1996 the same path and released therefore Stakes Winner 2, the follow-up of the horse racing arcade game from 1995. What new features await us in the second installment?
You know how it works, discuss the title in the discussion thread and tell us something about it. If you wanna go the extra mile, then ask for a High Score Challenge in a post of yours or send Priest a PM.
