Zytron 2 is everything that is right about the SHMUP genre: it's got eye-fucking neon visuals, zillions of bullets flying in all directions, and a pounding techno chiptune soundtrack. What makes this game unique is that it's a sequel to a game that was released 22 years ago, on the Commodore 64 computer platform. Talk about pedigree!
Zytron II was released just over a month ago: New Year's Eve 2011 and bills itself as a multiplayer, twin stick, side scrolling shoot em up for Windows PC Computers and is typical of scrolling shoot em ups of that genre, making it familiar to anyone who has played such classics as, Armalyte, R-Type or Gradius (Nemesis).
The aim of the game is simple enough, blast anything and everything in your path to make your way to the last level and destroy the end of game boss.
I only have one question: why is this not on Desura yet??
