played 1942, right? Fly your little plane, shoot some enemies, kill
a boss. All with a ship visible only with a magnifying glass. Steel
Empire is, essentially, a side scrolling 1942 with lots and lots
of cool add-ons.
instead of being a mainly WWII type of shmup, Steel Empire draws
from one of the most bizzare minds in history: Jules Verne.
this game is an old-school sci fi game. No huge battle spaceships
with electon cannons here. In fact, the most powerful weapon in
the game is a flame thrower.
of the bosses borrow directly from his works. Behind all that Julesy
stuff, though, is a VERY solid shmup. With interesting levels, bosses,
enemies, and story, this is one shmup-fest you shouldn't miss.
