Skycurser released at Galloping Ghost Arcade.


Skycurser is a horizontal, meat-on-metal, shoot ‘em up (shmup) that is in active development for JAMMA compatible arcade cabinets. Strong influences on the game include Id Software’s Doom, Nazca’s Metal Slug, Namco’s Splatterhouse, James Cameron’s The Terminator and Michael Jackson’s Thriller. In this game, a lone pilot in a one of a kind airplane battles humans, animals, and machines infected by a plague-like disease emitted from a star. The goal of the pilot is to survive waves of enemies by “bursting” them open in spectacularly gory fashion with a brutal yet practical arsenal of weapons – machine gun, shotgun and katana blade. In order to progress the storyline, the pilot must remain untouched by enemy objects. The game ends either by the death of the pilot or destroying the source of the infection.”

Castlevania: The Arcade now at Galloping Ghost

Doc Mack –

For those that missed the stream last night, the new game on the floor is: CASTLEVANIA THE ARCADE! It has a Wii mote style controller that lets you whip at the screen to attack enemies. Released in 2009 from Konami. Definitely a really amazing game with lots of hidden bonuses to try to find. The music is really amazing as well! According to Aurcade we are the only arcade with it!
