MEGA CAT­NIP Re­leases from Mega Cat Stu­dios that you should keep an eye out for

Retro Gamer - - MEGA CAT STUDIOS -

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.
