SB Recommends CPS Games
Given the abundance of emulators that specificly serve CPS and Neo Geo games, I figured it was best to separate CPS games from the rest of Arcade games.
The CP System (abbr. CPS) is/was Capcom's arcade board system. There are 3 different models: CP System (abbr. CPS-1), CP System II (abbr. CPS-2), and CP System III (abbr. CPS-3). I'll go over each in turn.
The Blueberry Hill: Battle Circuit
is one of my favourite Belt Scrollers
. The graphics are lovely, the characters all odd and charming, and there's a good variety of attacks. Gosh, I even like how the name looks.
Dungeons & Dragons: Shadow over Mystara
(also on: Saturn1)
Giga Wing (also on: DC)
Sniper Honeyviper: The Dynasty Warriors
of scrolling shooters. A bit too easy and patronizing (hey, who said you actually had to DODGE those bullets?!), but good stupid fun for a rainy afternoon or two.
Mars Matrix: Hyper Solid Shooting (also on: DC)
Sniper Honeyviper: What Gigawing
should have been.
ben: Collectibles are something that I can usually take or leave in shooters, but I think they work incredibly well in Mars Matrix, to the extent that I sometimes find myself trying to extend my combo to the detriment of survival. Repelling bullets also feels hella nice, and there's a really great rhythm to dodging/repelling/collecting.
Street Fighter Alpha 3
(also on: Dreamcast, GBA, NAOMI, PS, PS22)
, PSP, Saturn)
