The last major release was probably Devil Engine or Vasara Collection but there are tons of demos and doujin games dropping all the time.
According to wiki, a Windows 95 version of RayStorm was released!On that note I feel like Taito needs to release some more of their classics on PC. I've been itching to play a proper version of RayForce. I also never had the chance to play any version of RayStorm either. If I ever stumble upon a dumb amount of capital I will personally fund a flood of Shmups to all platforms.
From one of their Steam posts:
I'll get this on Steam then. I've wanted to play this for years as well.
Xinput? I assume something that old wouldn't support it.
I played through Blazing Star maybe four months ago and I had the same complaint about the charge attacks. It just wasn't fun to play. That final boss though, lol.Also is it ok to not having much fun with Blazing Star? I like the graphics and the sound and in theory it should be a cool game but there's something I can't put my finger on. Maybe it's the meta of enemies getting in your face all the time while having to charge attacks.
Good catch. Darius Plus is a neat addition. Do you know if the alternate region versions of Darius Force and Darius II MD have any significant differences?From memory, those CDs line up with the ones released for the Japanese version.
The console collection actually has a few games that aren't present in the Japanese version: Darius Plus for PC Engine, plus the overseas versions of Darius Force (Super Nova) and Darius II MD (Sagaia).
I haven't looked into it but to my knowledge they're basically the same outside of title screen, which cheat codes work and how, etc.
This is how I end up with 2 of something.
