Omega Five explodes in images

Omega Five explodes in images

Hudson and Natsume were gentle enough to reveal a little bit more details about their shmup Omega Five with the help of images devoted to the heroin Ruby. I really appreciate the colors technique, divided among hot and cold to create a splendid union. The gameplay also seems to be a climax in this Xbox Live Arcade title.

The graphics look fantastic, if somewhat hectic.

Impressive gfx for XBLA. Gameplay looks devoted more to Crystal meth than to heroin Ruby, nudge nudge. Characters are rather large compared to side-scrollers of yore. Modern game design stresses "recognizability" or "identifiability" so much, I reckon.

This has me reminded of Forgotten worlds, only with blinding graphics, and I like it.

Suddenly interested in games again.

    Moonwalker But Malaga was great. Loved the weather, the hills and mountains. We went to the sea, a zoo, cable car up a mountain and last but not least visited their red light district too, haha. (14 Hours ago)

    Moonwalker And it was quite a sight to eventually be above the clouds or see nothing but clouds or sky and no land below you, lovely. (14 Hours ago)
