Yet another excellent shooter from Japan, Winglancer is a retro-style vertical shooter from ZAP, who updated his own game for the MSX computer to work on modern Windows PCs. Nothing special here: kill everything in sight by shooting enemy ships and avoiding their gunfire. Nice anime style, solid gameplay, and challenging bosses make this one of the better "old skool" shooters out there, although enemy patterns are a bit too predictable after a few waves. Recommended if you enjoy shooters, especially ones that hark back to the golden days of 8-bit gaming. Thumbs up!
