Arakgis Revolution, a brand-new Mega Drive shoot ‘em up from Argentinian developer SIK is on its way and it looks pretty awesome.
The game is an overhead shooter that uses SNES style Mode 7 rotation to huge effect, something that wasn’t thought possible on Sega’s legendary console as it doesn’t have a dedicated graphics chip that could do what the SNES was capable of.
What’s The Story?
Arkagis takes place in the year 2612 and tasks you as a rebel pilot who takes on the United Space Colonies who came to free Arkagis from a dictator and then became one too.
The rebels of Arkagis have a secret ship that they use to take on and defeat the USC and gain freedom for the colony.
The game is played overhead and looks and feels a bit like another Mega Drive game called Subterrania or it might just remind you of the overhead parts of Super Probotector/Super Contra on the SNES.
How does it look and play? Take a gander for yourself.
What Else Does Arkagis Revolution Include?
Along with cutscenes and a ton of speech (76 seconds worth) Arkagis Revolution also has a password save game feature, 3 and 6 button controller support (even keyboard and mouse) and a 28 page manual, options to change the language (English, French and Spanish) and difficulty, speed settings and even left handed mode.
The single player game comes on a region free cartridge and there will also be a ROM version to play on emulators too.
