Yo, Gunbarich is kind of awesome! It's a combination between a brick-breaking game and a pinball game, with evolving mechanics and bosses and an extra-large dose of nutty Japanese charm. The core game mechanic is very satisfying, with the perfect level of challenge (so far).
It looks beautiful, too. I initially thought that it was a remake, but it's just a later-period arcade game. Plus, you can play it in Tate Mode!
Seriously, if you guys want some fresh, fun, crazy arcade action, grab Gunbarich.
Maybe I'll pick up Strikers, too. Funnily enough, the three classic games that released this week, Aero Fighters 2, Strikers 1945, and Gunbarich, are all arcade classics from the same development staff.
