SYLPHIA (TONKIN HOUSE / COMPILE)

 SUPER CD-ROM2 (JAPANESE VERSION)

Another PC-ENGINE breathtaking shooter! Sylphia is an excellent Compile game (published by Tonkin House), which can be compared to any high quality Arcade shooter.

It all begins when an army of evil beasts invades an ancient city. A female warrior defends its habitants fiercely, but receives a fatal attack from the enemy. Suddenly, a mysterious light comes to aid her, transforming the warrior on a fairy with mystical powers. Now, our heroine is in search of her enemies, those evil creatures which destroyed its city and took her life away.

Sylphia has beautiful scenaries and mythological characters. Itīs a shame that Compile hadn't used too many visual effects. The musics are perfect, as well as is the gameplay. You can change your weapons throughout the game, selecting among 4 different kinds of guns. There are other items which increase your shot power... there is, still, a special weapon, grabbed when you collect those items. Besides, you can control your speed, increasing or decreasing it, according to your needs. You can also restore your energy, with another specific item.

  

Sylphia is a damn nice shooter, like Spriggan and Psychic Storm, and shows us once again that Compileīs vertical shooters are really the must!
