  • While there are plenty of retro arcade shooters out there, many of them quite good even, I’ll at least give Spacewing War credit for going in a direction that sort of sidesteps the competition by going full-on Gameboy with its look and feel. As a proud OG Gameboy owner back in the day I was actually reminded more than once of how many games looked and felt on the system by little touches in terms of the visuals and how things played out. There’s pretty limited screen real estate to work with, and sometimes it’s hard to tell what’s a barrier and what isn’t as you try to navigate through some tighter spaces, but for the most part it works and the built-in ability to shift between a few shooting styles to match your current needs really helps the game feel nicely tuned. It’s not terribly diverse in what it offers and its deep cut retro style may not appeal to everyone, but it’s a great option for retro shooter fans to pick up in order to give their collections some real variety.
