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.
