Guerrilla War


Genre: Action / Arcade

Publisher: SNK

Total time played: 1 hour

Short review: A fast paced bullet hell game based on the arcade classic (that I have never seen, played).  The game has a lot of issues with the enemies and characters flashing and disappearing but it is still a lot of fun to play.

A fast paced overhead bullet hell shooter in the style of levels 2 and 4 of the original Contra.  The game thankfully features unlimited continues because if it didn’t the game would be nearly impossible to beat.  Guerrilla War suffers from a lot of slow down and screen flashing but even with that it is one of the better run and gun shooters on the system.

If I had to guess I would say I killed 2,000 men and blew up 300 tanks in the course of beating this game.  I have never played the arcade version although it looks much better based on the YouTube videos I have watched.  If you get tired of playing Contra and Super C I highly recommend this game as a nice alternative.
