  Ikari Warriors - Game of the Week

Ikari Warriors (or simply, Ikari, in Japan) is the result of SNK's rivalry with Capcom. This game is perhaps the earliest evidence of such rivalry. So whom threw the first blow? Judging by Ikari, it was SNK; Ikari is SNK's answer to Commando. Both games are twitch shooters. I can't really decide which one I like more. Can you?



Ikari Warriors is one of the first games I remember as a toddler. Even back then, I was amazed the game had a goal other than to get a high score: to reach the end. I'd think it was easy if I really focused and weaved through all the highly detailed enemy soldiers and torrents. It wasn't. Although the gaming community has by and large forgotten about Ralf and Clark's early venture, it does make an interesting historical study. Ikari Warriors was an essential entry to run 'n' gun, furthering the form to what we know it today. The image in the GOTW slot is custom watercoloring by Bill Main.

The Neo Geo is 100% the best 16 bit system! Just felt the need to reaffirm my love for the system.
