Hammerin' Hero Preview

Developed by none other than Irem (makers of seminal shooter R-Type, personal fave Disaster Report, and others) this little guy and his hammer set out in an adorably irreverent and slightly absurd adventure.

R-Type Command – Review

Read review of R-Type CommandA completely new interpretation of classic material, R-Type Command takes the revered side-scrolling space shooter away from its action roots and plants it deeply within the strategy genre. As bizarre as it may seem to rework something based on timing and reflexes into one of the slowest, most methodical styles in videogaming, my hat is off to Irem—it absolutely works.

R-Type Command – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Animated Blood, Mild Fantasy Violence

R-Type Command

Game Description: In R-Type Command players are cast head-first into a desperate war against the mysterious alien race known as the Bydo, humanity sends wave after wave of fighters into Bydo space-none of which are ever heard from again. Mankind’s main hope now resides with a lone commander, sent to lead a small armada on a perilous mission into the heart of the Bydo Empire. Low on fuel and forced to scavenge resources and equipment from his surroundings, the commander must use all his cunning and wits if he hopes to succeed, let alone make it home alive.

Steambot Chronicles

Game Description: Steambot Chronicles is unique open-ended gameplay and a more polished role-playing experience. Vanilla Beans wakes up to find himself lying on a sun-drenched beach. How did he get there—and who in the world is the girl standing above him? The girl introduces herself as Connie, and Vanilla begins the first busy day of a grand adventure. He'll take Connie home, meet the other members of her band (the Garland Globetrotters), and explore the town of Nefroburg. When a gang of bandits begins overrunning the town, you have a chance to be a hero—or not. What happens after today is completely up to you. Fight a multitude of enemies and gigantic boss mechs against overwhelming odds.
