If you can remember smokey arcades and having your money stolen by the older boys then you’ll surely appreciate the release of these excellent arcade originals on Nintendo Wii’s download service, the Virtual Console Arcade, today for a bargain 800pts each:
Ghosts ‘n Goblins is a classic game that packs a heavy punch (and lance). Experience the smash arcade hit from 1985 as you help Arthur defeat hordes of monsters in his attempt to rescue the princess. The first (and possibly only) game in which taking a hit reduces you to your underwear.
A retro classic from Capcom’s arcade line-up in 1985, EXED EXES is a vertically-scrolling shooter that’s sure to bring back fond memories. Dodge bullets! Collect fruit! And go for high scores in the most furious sci-fi insectoid shoot ‘em up ever made.
