Parody Fighter Special Heroes Dynamite

April 16, 2007 8:08 AM | Tim W.

Parody Fighter Special Heroes Dynamite is a doujin fighting game with a very novel idea, featuring female cosplayers dressed up as characters from classic 2D fighters such as the Street Fighter series, World Heroes and Fatal Fury.

Click on the fourth blue button underneath the large image to download the trial version. Additional configuration is required to unpack the zip file.

Open the control panel located in your start menu, then select regional and language options. Choose the languages tab and check the box for East Asian languages installation. Select the advanced tab next and choose Japanese as the default language for non-Unicode programs.

You will then be prompted for the operating system installation CD. The computer has to be restarted once the entire process is completed. Control configuration is required in order to map the arrow keys for character movement.

(This game is not suitable for children.)

Super Marionoid

April 15, 2007 8:18 AM | Tim W.

Super Marionoid is another Game Maker production that is set to follow the footsteps of Duck Doom Deluxe. Sprites from Nintendo's classic platformer were used to replace the dull bricks and objects found in Taito's arcade title. The save game feature does come in handy, especially when considering that the difficulty is rather high and there's twenty-eight levels to beat.

Press the Q key to quit at any time.
