USA VC Update: Forgotten Worlds and Space Invaders
Posted by Marcel van Duyn
Hot on the heels of Mega Man 3, Capcom has released yet another of their classics on VC! It's accompanied by a popular, yet aged arcade game by Taito.
Forgotten Worlds is the Genesis port of Capcom's arcade shooter. You control a flying warrior in a robotic suit who, as is usually the case in shooters, has to take down an evil overlord and his underlings. A unique aspect of the game is that there is a little sphere floating around you which can also shoot - You can control this sphere at all times. This game also introduces the fictional currency Capcom now uses in most of their games, the Zenny!
Space Invaders was a classic arcade game. You might think Space Invaders: The Original Game for SNES is a reimagining of sorts - Unfortunately, it isn't at all! The game is basically a collection of different versions of the original Space Invaders. Don't be fooled into thinking it's a new game, it really isn't! We recommend waiting for the quite entertaining Space Invaders Get Even on WiiWare instead or just picking up Space Invaders Extreme on the PSP/DS.
