Review: Pocky & Rocky Reshrined

Review: Pocky & Rocky Reshrined

A classic 16-bit game finally makes its way to modern platforms, with updated (stretched!) visuals, music, and controls.

Pocky & Rocky, an SNES shmup, has been popular enough to spawn several sequels, but this remake is the first for the series. The idea is good, the game is good, but the execution might leave a little left on the table. J.J. tells us if the magic is still in the shrine (hint: sorta).
