    Super Hydorah is an old-school shoot'em up full of surprises, and it's incredibly polished. Fun, challenging, and rewarding, the new game from Locomalito is a must have for all the old gamers out there. Beware, though: it's really tough.

    Locomalito´s shoot em up is one of the best games the genre has seen over the years. Inspired by the games of yesteryear, improves their legacy in many ways with no need for a revolution. Go for it if you´ve ever enjoyed Gradius, R-Type or Darius.

    Super Hydorah is a game for those who appreciate the space shooters of yore. It isn't forgiving in the slightest, but it also doesn't overwhelm you with bullet hell sensibilities. It looks and feels so much like those old games that you could mistake it for a long-lost classic. Even if it didn't come with a co-op mode or a nice bonus game, Super Hydorah is so fun that it would still be a recommended purchase for genre fans.

    If a polar opposite of the cynical “conveyor belt” approach to game design exists, it’s in the form of Super Hydorah and its slew of dextrously designed levels. Though it can be challenging in the wrong ways at times, it serves up a solid challenge for shoot ‘em up aficionados. On the whole, it’s a game that embraces the teachings of the genre behemoths while offering its own thoughtful tweaks.

    Fun & fast, Super Hydora goes straight into the player's retro feelings, offering a very solid and hard experience based on classics like Nemesis and Andro dunos. Great game.
