Intergalactic shmup Armed F rockets onto Nintendo Swap
Hamster have added one other old-school arcade title to their increasing Arcade Archive catalogue. Nichibitsu’s sci-fi schmup Armed F is now accessible to obtain on the Nintendo Swap.
Initially hitting the arcade market in 1988, Armed F (often known as Formation Armed F), is a vertically-scrolling shmup during which gamers information the Vowger RC30 spaceship right into a deep area anomaly – Level X1Y7Z94 – which has abruptly opened within the galaxy. What will probably be discovered on the opposite facet of this black gap? (Trace: it is aliens and shit).
Armed F follows the tropes of your normal shmup; patterned enemy assaults, power-ups and weapon variants, and a number of phases guarded by monstrous bosses. It is truly a fairly slick title, with nice music and brash, vibrant visuals, even when the Vowger is not fairly as easy and slickly managed as different shmup battleships.
Armed F is offered to obtain now on Nintendo Swap, priced round $8.
