Lords of Thunder (1993)

Another shoot’em up from the makers of Gates of Thunder, only this time with a fantasy theme instead of the typical SF-setting. While the gameplay isn’t all that different from similar games, you fly more or less from left to right and shoot everything that moves, sometimes the fantasy theme makes you forget you play a shmup instead of a platformer. Since you play a guy in an armor, sometimes I had to suppress my urge to try to jump over something, so strong is the illusion of being in a platformer. Overall it’s a nice game, not too easy but also not too difficult.
