For those of you unfamiliar with Gate Of
Doom, it’s an eight-way beat-’em-up, released by Data East back in 1990. You pick one of four characters, each with different abilities, and beat up everything in sight. Once you’ve vanquished enough baddies, you can activate powerful spells. It’s a fun brawler, and the perspective helps it stand out from the crowd.
Gate Of Doom is also a promising start for the Johnny Turbo’s Arcade range of retro releases, packing all the options you’d hope for including configurable controls and save states. Although the blurry scaling is a bugbear, an impressive variety of filters is available, offering scanlines and various video connection imitations like composite and RGB. Score 80%
