Alien-Soldier

If there’s one thing that retro games had nailed down, it was a boss fight. All those classic visuals and controls were meant to prepare you for that one battle, that final encounter where you’d use your hard-earned powers to win the day and get snubbed by the princess in the castle. But when it came to retro boss fights, Alien Soldier was easily the king.

Look past the bonkers story, and you’d find a game with gunplay action as polished as Gunstar Heroes, with minimal stage exploration needed before you’d face one of the dozens of bosses who were waiting for you. Each one was unique, requiring a different strategy to conquer. They all looked rather nifty as well, if you were a fan of nightmare fuel blast-processing that is. But man oh man, Alien Soldier is one game that would make you earn those thumb blisters and then some.

    Reading about Gravity Rush reminds me I still need to finish the first one. I should never stop halfway in a game. Now to figure out how to use the controls again

          I’m very weird that way can not handle the taste of olives on their own or in salads etc.

          But no problem with olives on pizza, on some combo’s it can even be very nice.
