STAR PARODIA (HUDSON SOFT / INTERSTATE)

SUPER CD-ROM 2 (JAPANESE VERSION)

I'll start this little text with a touching confession: I'm not too fond of tiny-happy-and-overcolored games! I like to play Parasol Stars from time to time and also think Rainbow Islands is really a good game, but I rather the morbid mood of games like Xak III or Snatcher. This is why I waited for so long to grab Star Parodia, even knowing it was certainly an astounding game... I thought that, regarding on happy shooters, Parodius (Konami) was more than enough for me!

If you've never heard about this game, Star Parodia is a vertical shooter that make a damn fun on Star Soldier series, just like Parodius did with Gradius series. Just as an example, take a look at the starships you can choose to play the game: Paro-ceaser (fatty version of Super Star Soldier ship), Bomberman (!!!) and, believe it or not...A PC-ENGINE!! (!!!!).

Well, I must admit: Star Parodia is a flawless game! Its overture is certainly among the best ever made to PC-ENGINE, incredibly well drawn and with an amazing evolution, just like an opening sequence from an action movie. The game itself is fantastic: unbelievable creative graphics, lots of visual effects, a perfect gameplay and a catching soundtrack that will make you whistle the tunes for a long, long time! Honestly, I don't remember having such a fun time playing any other PC-ENGINE game!

  

Star Parodia is an essential game, even for those who don't enjoy shooters a lot. After all, there's no other game in which you can control a PC-ENGINE itself, destroying your enemies with powerful CD's and protected by a spinning pad shield!! Truly bizarre!! :)
