  • As a huge classic arcade run and gun shooter fan, having grown up on the likes of Contra, Rush’n Attack, and more, a quick look at Queeny Army caught my eye. In principle this is in the same vein, with you choosing your character (though, honestly, the differentiation between them feels limited to non-existent), and then running and jumping your way through enemies, shooting them up along the way. In practice though, even as a modern game there’s a lot of nuance and polish missing here that gets discouraging pretty quickly. Just in general the controls feel on the loose side, and when this is paired with too much of a reliance on platform jumping and enemies that have been deliberately placed to shoot and interrupt your actions there’s just a lot of cheap death to be found. A look at the details tends to hurt as well. In theory there’s a variety of weapons you could pick up but aside from what I’d consider mostly subtle differences in color or sound many of them fundamentally act the same way, and while these details may be small they do add up as you play and leave you with at best a middling impression of the overall experience. If you’re jonesing for a run and gun fix perhaps it would suffice, but honestly you’d be better off loading up some classics like Metal Slug rather than settling for this.
