Gate of Thunder (1992)


Gate of Thunder is an excellent shoot’em up for the PC-Engine that reminds me of the classic R-Type games (okay, it’s not much younger than those, but they were the ones I played first). The game sports a wide range of levels, enemies and bosses, all with excellent animation, even if most of the stuff feels slightly like stuff I’ve seen in other shoot’em ups and nothing gives you the vibe of real uniqueness. That said it’s all high quality, very well executed. If you want a good and demanding game, Gate of Thunder won’t disappoint.
