MEGA CATNIP Releases from Mega Cat Studios that you should keep an eye out for
LITTLE MEDUSA SNES/NES/GENESIS/PC ■
A spiritual successor to Kickle Cubicle with updated graphics and Greek mythology wrapping. You play as the Gorgon Artemiza and must petrify enemies to bridge gaps and beat bosses. it’s not light on content, either, with five worlds and a secret bonus world if you can beat the game fast enough. COFFEE CRISIS ■
An arcade-style brawler featuring 12 original tracks by bands including Psychostick, Terrorizer, Lords of the Trident and Nile – also with appearances from influencers Metal Jesus rocks and Alpha Omega Sin. Sadly, good music and mediocre graphics don’t do much to cover the standard-fare combat or weak plot. IN COD WE TRUST NES ■
Another title that’s due out this later on year, In Cod We Trust is a Saturday morning cartoon-inspired fish fighting platformer with customisable equipment, challenging levels, and eight-direction scrolling. The art is attractive enough to draw you in, lets just hope it doesn’t smell as bad as its namesake. ALMOST HERO 2 NES ■
The sequel to the co-op ninja beat-’emup Almost Hero. You play as one of two ninja hopefuls trying to save their online bonsai business. Almost Hero 2 is currently still in development, but it looks to be keeping with the feel of the original albeit with better looking environments and crisper sprites. LETHAL WEDDING GENESIS ■
While still in development what we’ve seen looks intriguing. Lethal Wedding is a top-down twin-stick shooter with some nice pixel art. The overly risqué lady sprites we could do without, though – just because it’s a retro-style game doesn’t mean you should embrace everything from the old days.
