Fantasy Zone is an original take on the SHMUP which has you flying to the left or the right looking for bases to destroy. After you destroy all of them you are treated to a fun boss fight. The colors are vibrant and pastel, the music is pleasant, the whole experience is pretty excellent. Compared to other more developed shooters, it isn’t competitive, but it has something special going on.
Faria - 1/1
As we have learned many times, this isn’t a very good format for RPGs. This game has a hilarious opening cutscene that acceptable gameplay. If you are a diehard retro RPG player give this a shot and report back.
Faxanadu - 0/1
I actually remember playing this game ALOT as a child and i remember it fondly. Rude awakening time. This game isn’t that great. Where the hell is the king anyway? Punching sucks, music sucks, graphics … are pretty ok. I don’t know, it just didn’t make me feel good.
Felix the Cat - 1/1
This game is an awesome platformer! I would be more than happy to pull this one out and play it again. Felix is a high jumping cat who uses one of those accordion punching gloves as a weapon. You get little Felix heads to power up. A power up grants you an extra hit before death and also changes your attack type. I have spent some time with this game off-screen before and find it very excellent.
Ferarri Grand Prix - 1/1
Not the best racing game I have ever seen but I guess there is nothing terrible about it. It’s interesting that you can practice the tracks before actually racing in them since essentially it’s the same experience as just trying the race over and over. Good thinking I guess.
