  Ozma Wars - Game of the Week

Once again it's Game of the Week time. This week we'll be taking a closer look at the very first game to be developed and published by SNK: Ozma Wars. This 1979 arcade game runs on the same hardware as Taito's Space Invaders and was only the second ever vertical shoot 'em up. Take control of your spacecraft and face waves of UFOs, comets and meteors, stopping every so often to dock with the mothership and replenish your energy.



Not a game that's discussed very often so please check out the Game of the Week discussion thread and let us know what you think about this one. If you've never played it before why not give it a try on the PSP or Mame. If anyone is interested in taking part in a high score challenge please contact Priest.

  Sasuke vs. Commander - Game of the Week

Yes, it's that time again: another week, another game. Today's focus is on SNK's archaic side. How many late seventies/early eighties games can us enthusiasts name off the top of our heads? I've gone way back to the year '80 to resurrect this forgotten shooter, Sasuke vs. Commander. Sasuke vs. Commander (SVC) was a new take on the vertical shooter genre that was picking up popularity at the time.



I've done the testing and can assure my readers SVC is playable in MAME (for best results, I suggest keeping this game's aspect ratio, as the game was meant to be played on a vertically stretched monitor). Speaking of SVC… Maybe I'm over thinking it, but is the common acronym of SNK vs. Capcom — SVC — a nod to the title of this game?! I always wondered why SNK shortened SNK vs. Capcom even more (Note that Capcom does not shorten its versus SNK titles). Until this week, I've only seen the game listed in my MAME directory, and a few odd references about the Internet (when doing SNK Google searches). What is your experience with this shooter?

  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 King of Fighters 2002 - Game of the Week

After the somewhat controversial KoF 2001, Eolith and SNKP came to an agreement that they needed to take a look on the franchise's own roots, or more precisely on The King of Fighters '98. The so called 'Dream Match' from 1998 is considered by many as the best KoF ever made, with its traditional 3-on-3 system and extremely competitive gameplay. So Eolith took the same formula and brought out their second and last 'Dream Match' KoF in 2002...



Just like KoF '98, 2k2 was very well received among fans from all over the world. Many KoF followers who already wrote off the series since 2k1, suddenly had a glimmer of hope that the series will return to the glory that it once was. Do you think the same way? And while discussing in the traditional GOTW thread, why don't you consider a High Score Challenge as well?

  Quiz King of Fighters - Game of the Week

Already sick and tired of watching 'Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?' on TV? Then you better don't read further, because this game is not much different. Japanese gaming fans were always known for their hunger for trivia, merchandise and fan service. So SNK teamed up one more time with Saurus and brought out Quiz King of Fighters to satisfy the previously mentioned demographic group.



Unlike their Japanese counterparts, western arcade visitors and gamers in the '90s were of course not really that interested to answer questions about SNK trivia, geography, sports and even politics. So SNK wisely decided to not localize the game and to release it outside of Japan. But nonetheless the game remains an obscure and fascinating Neo Geo collectable among SNK followers.

  Mechanized Attack - Game of the Week

What are two guys, one of them looking like Arnold Schwarzenegger, armed with UZIs doing on a tropical island occupied by dangerous cyborgs? I think you already know the obvious answer, and no, they aren't playing hopscotch together... But if you wonder how the above mentioned scenario could look like in rail shooter from the 80's, just take a look at this SNK classic here.



Is anyone familiar with SNK's Mechanized Attack or have you even played it? Please share your insights with other members and while you're at it, why not asking for a High Score Challenge?

  Samurai Shodown 64 / Warriors Rage - Game of the Week

SNK's Hyper Neo Geo was not exactly famous for being very successful nor for having a large library of rememberable titles. But the 64-Bit system indeed offered a handful of 3D versions of some of SNK's most popular franchises, for example Samurai Shodown. In fact SNK released two 3D installments of the Samurai-themed series, and another obscure one only followed on the PSX...





So, what do you guys and gals think about the Samurai Shodowns on the Hyper Neo Geo? In this case I took together Samurai Shodown 64 and its sequel Warriros Rage into one GOTW thread to make it easier. I also covered the PSX-exclusive Warriors Rage (not the same as the Hyper Neo Geo one) to clear things up.
