Axelay – Shoot em up on what seems a Barrel

After the insanity that was Parodius Konami went and made quite a decent lil shoot em up that was this game

Boasting some strange scrolling effects a twist to the normal rules of shooting games and also to boot a great soundtrack this shooter was one tough cookie but with only 6 stages was that enough to save this fine title

    Sorry for the late comment on this vid but I’ve been really tied up over the festive season and packing for my big move:)

    But yeah great vid on a classic snes game, this was one of the games that I didn’t own on the snes back in the day, but played quite s bit off.

    The first level graphics at the time looked jaw dropping but seem to have aged a bit now for the worse but never the less it’s a great game, maybe better than super rtype.

    Thanks for sharing

      Hmmmmm i think there was less detail in the super r-type games but to be honest it also has it merits for being the big daddy of scrolling shooters

    I’ve fired this one up a few times on BSNES. It’s good but somehow I find the barrel roll effect rather disorientating!
