PSYCHIC STORM (TELENET JAPAN / ALFA SYSTEM)

 SUPER CD-ROM2 (JAPANESE VERSION)

Psychic Storm seems to be a game only released on PC-ENGINE… I’ve never heard of any version of it released on other consoles. It’s a shooter released by Telenet and, I should say, a really well-done game. In this shooter, you can choose between 4 different starships, each one with its own pilot, and you’ll have to pass through 7 stages till your inevitable meeting with the final boss… a typical shoot’em up plot! :)

 

Well, this game has some interesting aspects, specially on graphics, sound and playability, features that really impressed me. Background graphics are truly top-notch, using some optical illusion effects, like those used on a stage at the sea. Characters had also been carefully created, specially on end bosses. Musics are also great, well designed for this kind of game. Although Psychic Storm is a very, very easy game, it has such a nice playability that it will easily keep one playing it for hours and hours.

The game also has some very common aspects, like to catch energy and items that increase the starship firepower. You can also use bombs, when the blue bar under the energy bar gets filled. Psychic Storm has an innovative feature: your ship can transform itself, when it receive too many hits… this gives you some time to gather more energy.

  

If you are a shooter addicted, you can’t miss Psychic Storm… another true gem created for this wonderful videogame system.
