Game Review

Have you ever wondered what the best sci-fi vertical scrolling shooter for the Nintendo Entertainment System (Famicom, in Japan) is? Summer Carnival '92: Recca is a good candidate!

Created by KID Corp and released by Naxat Soft in 1992 exclusively for the NES, Recca is sci-fi shooting at its best. Frenetic action, hundreds of enemies moving on the screen at an impressive speed, shooting everything at your ship, tons of different weapons and power-ups, end-of-level bosses, and everything else you can ask. This little gem designed by Shinobu Yagawa, despite its 8-bit origin, can compete easily with coin-ups or 16-bit games. Ok, you won't find the soundtrack of Xenon 2: Megablast, but the music of Recca is frenetic and energizing enough to keep you motivated.

As usual, we packed everything with the correct emulator, both for PC and Mac. So you can download our wrapper and start playing immediately. Don't be scared if you die soon, Summer Carnival '92 is not a game for newbies: you need speed and reflexes, but if you are a fan of old-school vertical "shmups", you will love this!
