Games Played 11/25/2008


The Game Paradise! (1997)
Developer: Jaleco
Platform: SegaSaturn
Purchase Date: 1999

Super cute boss battle!

The Game Paradise is a self-reflexive, parody shooter just like Konami's Parodius series. The game is filled with funny characters and stages based on popular arcade games. It separates itself from Konami's more popular offering by its hardcore-level difficulty. There are tons of bullets on screen and they move really, really fast. The game uses a lot of fancy 2D effects and it has a simple weapon system. A lot of fun and definitely one of the greats in the shoot-'em-ups world. Watch out for those suicidal Tetris blocks!

LIBRARY STATUS: 5 out of 5
