This month, the guys drop further back into the annuals of console gaming history to play a fairly, well-known action/platformer on the SNES called Skyblazer. The game's plot is your typical "damsel in distress" scenario where you play as Sky, a Skyblazer warrior, on the hunt for Ashura, the Lord of War, who has kidnapped the sorceress Ariana.  You must traverse through 17 levels and 10 boss encounters.  The game is slightly non-linear in that it allows you to return to previously completed levels and even skip a few.  However, more thorough players are rewarded as they can collect additional power-ups and magic spells.  Skyblazer also incorporates a few puzzle elements, but none that are overly complicated or daunting.  And of course, more classic, face-melting MODE 7!!!

Skyblazer is available on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. We are very excited about July's pick, so be sure to purchase your copy as soon as possible and join us.

Also, be sure to join our forum HERE to discuss the game with fellow site members.



As the indie shmup scene continues to grow, more developers have had an opportunity to get their games out there for public consumption. The rise in popularity of the "rogue lite" formula has played a part, as people are seeking experiences that are less static, and a bit more unpredictable. After all, with so many rogue-lite twin stick games, platformers, and action RPGs, why shouldn't the shooting game genre dip a foot in the pool, right? Developer Panda Indie Studio (aka Arabong) has been doing just that, with early titles like Project Starship and Red Death. 2020 brought us the latest take on this formula, Project Starship X.

Project Starship is back with a wacky take on cosmic horror. In this rogue-lite shooter, you’ll take the role of the tentacled-yet-hip Swagthulhu as you CRASH-KILL comical abominations in flashy 16-bit style! With multi-purpose dodge mechanics and tons of crazy pick-ups, you’ll be able to crash your ship straight through the enemy and emerge unscathed. Project Starship X celebrates genre conventions by turning them upside-down! Join the RF Generation Shmup Club in July 2021, as we fire up Project Starship X on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch!
