ActRaiser: For The God In You 0

Until about a year ago, I believed that I had played all the great titles the Super NES had to offer (excluding Japan-only titles like Ys V). Once I played obscure titles like Terranigma and Cybernator, that idea was turned on its head. I don't usually like being wrong, but I didn't mind in this case, because quality Super Nintendo titles make me feel like a kid again. Yesterday, I grew into a pint-sized individual once again after I downloaded a title called ActRaiser.  I had heard Jeremy Pari...

Makin' Kingdoms, Killin Monsters 0

The ShortPros- Awesome hybrid of a God/City Sim with an action platformer- Music is amazing- Graphics for the platforming segments are quite pretty- Getting better towns levels your avatar, making you even cooler in the platforming segments- Battery saves your game- Like the box says, "Create order from chaos!" That totally happens. Sort of. Cons- City/God Sim segments seem under fleshed out- Platforming segments have a really weird difficulty curve and controls are a bit clunky- Shooting star ...

The Virtual Console fears god 0

  Actraiser for the Super Nintendo is most notable in the annals of history in that if you were to rank every SNES game in alphabetical order, it would appear ninth. However, unless you watched AHHH Real Monsters back when Nickelodeon mattered, then it would be the first notable SNES game on the list. Ergo, Actraiser is alphabetically the most significant 16-bit release of all time.  God fighting a pterodactyl In this game, you play as God. Not the real Christian God of course, the last t...

Actraiser Review 0

Actraiser was a pinnacle title in the SNES era. It was a defining video game, and is regarded as one of the single greatest games of all time, and not without good reason. It’s unique combination of God simulation and sidescrolling action were a new breed, and has not since been seen again. While not the most difficult game by any means, it’s held the test of time quite enviously. Actraiser casts you in the role of a God, Sir [Insertnamehere] - You will save the land of its evil monster reign, a...

Act-Raise A Little Hell 0

This is one of those great classic-era games that is loved by most, but slips under the radar thanks to more popular stuff like EarthBound or Super Metroid. But ActRaiser was a rompin', stompin', sword-swingin', god-playin' good time. I don't know if it was a controversial move back then to release a game where you literally play as an Almighty Creator of Everything, but I'm sure it took some convincing at the pitch meeting. This is definitely the kind of game where a modern sequel might work, i...
