Neo Geo Shmup Blazing Star Blasts Onto Android & iOS Devices

Neo-Geo-Shmup-Blazing-Star-Blasts-Onto-Android-And-iOS-DevicesDotEmu are quickly gaining the reputation as today's suppliers of retro gaming. After countless impressive releases under the name and their ever growing back catalogue of PC titles, DotEmu have now released the classic Neo Geo shooter Blazing Star for Android and iOS devices.

The 1998 release featuring pseudo-3D prerendered sprites, cutscenes and voice sampling was one of the most impressive titles made available for SNK's arcade platform. Unfortunately gamers hoping to enjoy Blazing Star in its original form today will need to put aside several hundred to secure the Neo Geo AES home cart version.

DotEmu's new Android and iOS port of the game on SNK Playmore's behalf instantly makes the horizontal shooter accessible to everyone with the low, in comparison, cost of just £1.99. For this price you'll also be able to enjoy the new additions of mission mode - an option which allows you to practice those tricky levels to perfection, and bluetooth multiplayer for co-operative 2 player action with those near by.

I prefer Pulstar myself :-) but not a bad shooter nevertheless.
