So I’ve been interested in the trend of folks making new games for old hardware for a long time, but until xeno crisis I didn’t think anyone had actually done anything that was worth playing as anything other than a curiosity.
I’m curious if other folks have played and legitimately liked any of the other titles that have come out in recent years.
A short list:
Xeno Crisis (extremely recommended)
All the Hucast games, but they’re kind of on everything?
Xeno Crisis is on this also, and there’s a heart meter on your VMU
Rikki & Vikki (which looks amazing but I will never play it)
there’s a bunch but I haven’t really looked at them
Insanity (it’s okay)
FX Unit Yuki (I own this but haven’t played it because… it looks “fine”)
So… are any of these, aside from xeno crisis, worth playing? Like xeno crisis is a game I play once per week basically, because it’s super smartly designed, controls well, looks great, and has excellent music. Most of the other “new retro” games just feel like somebody wanted to make a game for an old console and that’s it. But maybe Tanzer is good? I dunno.
any thoughts!? also I’ll add games as folks talk about them
