Image Fight / X-Multiply

by o.pwuaioc Tue Jan 14, 2014 2:18 am

Some questions for those in the know:

Saturn of PS1?

How does the Famicom version compare to the arcade compilation? Is it at least unique enough to be construed a different game and worth playing, like the Dragon Spirit (NES) or Gradius III (SNES) ports? Or is it just a gimped version like the 1942 (NES) or Gun.smoke (NES)?

I wish I had made an effort to get this game and play it back Oct 2012, but eh, better late than never.

The PSX port seems to be the way to go, if you want to be able to remap your controls. Otherwise, both ports seem pretty close.

The NES game feels more like a watered down port than its own unique experience, at least to me. Its certainly better than the 1942 port though.

X-Multiply was great. Too bad not many were playing it in Sept 2012.

We played ExedExes in Oct 2012! Sadly, the Famicom port went over just as well as 1942 on the NES. Damn you Micronics!!!!!!!! Give the games respect!
