Samurai Shodown is a fighting game that was originally released by SNK in 1993. The game features 12 swordmasters, each with their own unique personality. They will battle it out among each other before taking on Shiro Tokisada Amakusa in the game’s climax. One of the unique characteristics of this game is the Rage Gauge which fills up as the player takes damage. Once that gauge is full the character’s attacks do more damage, keeping the battles tense and exciting.
Last Resort is a shoot ‘em up game released by SNK in 1992. Players can use weapons such as laser, homing, or grenades which can be powered up as many as three times, along with a “unit” that can nullify enemy bullets and attack foes. Using these abilities and many other attacks players will fight in order to win the war between robots and humanity.
