[h2]GBAtemp book game club #78[/h2] Gunstar Super heroes (GBA) Our "what this feature is about" section usually takes the time to note this is not aiming to be a slowly constructed top ? games list with user reviews but a feature that also looks at some of the more interesting ideas that might have fallen short. When we do pick based mainly on quality we start to notice certain patterns in the developers/publishers we tend to select games from and Treasure Co are often in the shortlist. Today we have the GBA sequel to the megadrive/genesis legend "Gunstar Heroes" (actually the DS has a pretty good megadrive/genesis emulator and it is available for all three consoles on their online games options so consider that part of this selection as well). Gameplay is reasonably similar for both titles though it is a bit hard to nail down completely, that said if you took the megaman platformers in the ZX series and ramped up the speed several times you would probably get somewhere close. Depending upon the person you find yourself speaking to the sales of the GBA game made it a borderline flop and it was almost always going to exist in the shadow of its predecessor and as such it has gone somewhat under the radar in recent years, that said although some consider it a collectors item it is actually surprisingly available and surprisingly cheap where it is available. Note that it was also known as Gunstar Future Heroes in Europe. First few minutes of gameplay- speedruns and more are available GBAtemp release thread Although when considering Treasure Co titles on the GBA it is Astro boy Omega Factor that usually sits in the top spot we hold this is definitely worth a look at. Still does it do the original justice or might it be said to be just a half decent cash in type game? We are working on getting a new searching mechanism working with the new forum software now our tag system has been changed. In the meantime all the editions are in this section and hopefully GBAGOTW should get you the other entries in the series. gbagotw. GBAtemp book game club/GBAtemp game of the week is one of GBAtemp's features, in it we would like to get some discussion of our selection for the week going on among those that wish to participate. As we noted in the opening part this is not about slowly creating a top ? titles list and we may well include titles that fell short of classic status but were important to a company, tried something new or were otherwise noteworthy. ROM hacks, commercial releases, homebrew code and leaked/beta code for the GBA, DS and Wii are where we tend to draw from though the occasional dip into titles emulatable by the DS is not out of the realms of possibility.
