  Cotton: Fantastic Night Dreams - Game of the Week

It's time for another NGPC version of our traditional GOTW! This week we're taking a look at the mysterious subject of witchcraft; namely hags riding broomsticks, magic... and kitschy fairies, lots of pink bullets and cute boss enemies? Now seriously, that's roughly what Cotton: Fantastic Night Dreams is about. Originally released for the arcades in 1989, the developer team Success released over ten years later a port of Cotton for the NGPC, of which we're talking this week.



Discuss the game as usual and ask for a High Score Challenge if you've got what it takes. Any requests for a HSC will be considered, please leave an according post or contact Priest directly if you're in!

  2020 Super Baseball - Game of the Week

Prepare yourselves, in about 7 years sports will be carried out by robots and humans with bio-implants. Get your flying car ready and don't miss the 2020 Baseball league! OK, SNK may have exaggerated a tad when creating the game design of 2020 Super Baseball, but nonetheless it's amusing to see what technological innovations we may face in the future world of sports...



You know the weekly tradition, discuss the title and ask for a High Score Challenge if you're a gamer of honor. If that's the case, please leave an according post or send Priest a PM!

  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.
