What's this @retro junkie
?? … I Apologize. I missed this post. AND I really love Shmups.
How are the control? Does it play well compared to other Shmups? I'm curious! The reproduction / home brew carts are interesting. I was actually getting into some of this stuff back in the days of when I ran the business. I was hoping to maybe create a segment to create games like this in combination with other home brew companies and attempt to sell some of them in the store. For some of the CD based games with soundtracks... I was going to work on some of the music.
However, this never came to fruition... but it was getting somewhat close at one point. I had a few people interested and was talking to a few companies. I don't even remember who they were anymore... 15-16 years later. I cannot believe it's been that long.
Anyway... cool post! It's cool to see this work and that home brew is still somewhat alive in this fashion.
