Raze (Apr, 1991)
  • Fast and furious.
  • Enough variety for a long challenge.
Tilt (Sep, 1990)
Ce jeu d'arcade de Toaplan présente bien des similitudes avec Tiger Heli, mais l'idée de l'escadrille de soutien apporte un « plus » intéressant.

The unorthodox gameplay is what distinguishes Twin Hawk because it's truly unique. I've never see another other shooter be so weird in the gameplay department in my life (Parodius doesn't count folks because it's just graphically weird). Thank goodness Sega was nice enough to port Twin Hawk onto the Mega Drive, because they did a good job with it. While Truxton is a little better in presentation, Twin Hawk wins in regards to gameplay. It's true that Twin Hawk wasn't released in America, but the import versions are cheap and common. I would recommend the Japanese version because of the better packaging and because it doesn't have regional lockout. For less than $10 you can purchase Twin Hawk (it might cost a little more for the Japanese version), and that's a good deal indeed.
Power Play (Aug, 1990)
Das ist ein Modul jenseits von Gut und Böse: Man spielt‘s ab und zu mal ganz gerne, aber auf Dauer.., naja. Wer angesichts hochkarätiger Mega Drive-Actionspiele wie “Thunder Force III“ über 100 Mark für den lauen Hurrican ausgibt, wird wohl vor Gram in sein Joypad beißen. Die Action spielt sich mit angezogener Handbremse ab. Hat man sein Hilfs-Geschwader aufgerufen. ballert es sich sehr leicht; andererseits gibt es Stellen, an denen man ohne Beiflieger kaum eine Chance hat. Ein mittelmäßiges Modul mit der Betonung auf “mäßig“, das auch bei Grafik und Sound keine Bäume ausreißt.
