More games in June for everyone to enjoy. And yes, we’ll be switching things up in the following weeks, but hey, you’ll know we can’t just pass up the chance to bring you guys some awesome action, right? I mean, after all, it’s part of our overall unofficial theme.
We all know your old-school badasses, so it’s all good. This week we’re going straight up supernatural and mythological, from castles in the sky to more familiar castles you’ve explored growing up. Best believe we’re bringing some high-octane fun that’s guaranteed to score higher on the retro action scale and, at the very least, pique your interest.
Now if you’re a proud Amstrad owner, it’s time to fasten your seat belts because we’re going up, and I mean up. We got a little something for all the fans of ESP Soft, previous titles like CPC Jewels and Red Sunset. A brand new game called Gates to Heaven isn’t exactly what you think it is, but it is what you’d expect.
The game follows humanity’s saviour Ruperto González who went on to defeat the likes of Mr Gates. No relation to anyone and the insidious of Microchoft. Also, no relation to anything. Now this time, it looks like the big bad tech made a change of heart under the new name Amsoft + with different bases located among many unique museums. As Ruperto, it’s your task to ensure that Amsoft + stays afloat as you take down a few revolutionaries looking to seize control and bring back the old ways, all the old, big, bad ways, of Microchoft.
So if you’re into some heroism while being the standard bearer of good tech, it’s best to check out Gates to Heaven.
As tiny Thor, you’ll use your hammer to beat up enemies, collect coins and jewels, solve puzzles, and explore a beautiful, detailed landscape with its mystery secrets. If you’re a fan of Epic Boss fights, lots of cool treasures, awesome special abilities, weapon upgrades, and massive levels, then you might wanna join Tiny Thor on his adventure.
We don’t mind if you remember Castlevania Spectral Interlude by Sanchez on the ZX spectrum, you’ll be stoked to know that we have yet another Castlevania-like title called Castlevania AGA. It’s a work in progress for the AGA Amiga by Dante Retro Dev.
You can’t deny Castlevania’s legacy and the awesome games that drew inspiration from it. Some even became spiritual sequels, which is awesome. Now thanks to Dante 3D dev, players can still get ahold of the playable prototype, featuring the whole first level with these playable sections right up to the boss.
The basic framework for the game is good to go, so you can’t expect an awesome playable demo. Currently, progress is looking good with some new stages in development, so we might be getting a Dracula AGA a bit sooner than expected. Fingers crossed!
