Omega Blast is Another Homebrew Mega Drive Game Celebrating the Console’s 30th Anniversary

Tuesday, October 30th, 2018

Developed by Nendo, Omega Blast is a vertical ‘bullet hell’ shoot-em-up for the Mega Drive and a near complete version of the game is now available as part of the 30th anniversary of the Japanese launch of the Mega Drive.

This homebrew title is a free download and can be played in a Mega Drive emulator or directly on a Mega Drive itself with use of a flash cart. It’s a very impressive-looking title that reminds us of the infamous NES bullet hell shmup Summer Carnival ’92: Recca. You can see the game in action below:

Review: DUX, DUX 1.5 and Redux: Dark Matters

Saturday, February 8th, 2014

A new review!? That doesn’t happen very often!

Today I bring you a bumper review in the form of 3 Dreamcast indie games. We have decided to review DUX, DUX 1.5 and Redux: Dark Matters as a single, bumper review simply because the games are so similar and it’s a lot easier to compare the pros and cons against each of the games.

No other details like release dates or whether it’s a port of the Mega Drive or GBA remake where revealed. There’s also no indication to whether the steam punk shmup is even a port at all and not an entirely new remake. More on this as we get it.
