About

Killing zombies never gets old, but sometimes you just need a break. Get back to some serious old-school gaming with Syder Arcade! Syder Arcade is a love letter to Amiga games of the ‘90s, no coins, no upgrade grinding, just your tenacity and a motherload of alien invaders. Syder Arcade is a free scrolling, multi directional shoot 'em up, an uncompromised old-school experience, furious, challenging, and straightforward. This game will bring you back in time, when bulky starships were cool and games were about player skill and swearing madly at your computer.

Syder Arcade reviews and comments

Translated by

Syder Arcade is an Old-school side Scrolling Shooter. -Good Graphic-Many Powerups-Bone Hard To be clear, the Game is well suited for old Hands and those who want a Game challenge. For others, I don't recommend the Game as even the lowest Difficulty level is very hard. In addition to Storymode, there are several Survival levels that, with Endless battles and other Gimmicks, keeps the Player in classic Style with an increasingly difficult Challenge at laune. I recommend the Game for People who see it on Offer and want something for in between with lots of Explosions and hard Difficulty. Version 1.61 still has some Bugs in the Linux Version, but is otherwise fully playable.

HALLO AND WILLKOMMEN TO MY REGO! Meanwhile, I have drastically changed my Mind: "THIS SPIEL IS GANZ GENIAL"! Especially with an Arcade stick it is very Fun like a real Slot Machine and the Only thing that unfortunately often affects me is that usually too many enemy Salvos are blown around at once and therefore you usually just dodge it Needs to concentrate, selectable difficulty Levels lack a stupid Thing to do. An Update with three Levels of difficulty I would find very useful and recommended (or also level upgrades for stronger weapons etc.), this Game could still fascinate some, because it somehow stands out quite specifically from the Crowd. It is no ordinary Sidescroller, at The Touch of a button on an Action Button you can alternate the Direction on the side and still always move back and forth (it goes faster, after a While the Afterburner à la Wing automatically ignites Commander). You also protect large spaceships in escort missions, and an Object is also displayed on a Radar, the Soundtrack and all the different graphics filters are the most Retro. Anything else I would call a good Old concept, which has been completely new and super ingeniously revised and unfortunately comes With small Losses as described, I hope to have more Games with such potential (but fewer Errors-or, in fairness, updates). Thank you very much for that, my Recommendation is now clear with the revised review and if "YOUR SPIELE-ENTWICKLER" updated even more desirable levels of difficulty, you would certainly make everyone a Favor with it. Since I am currently on the Subject, it also comes to mind that the Whole thing should also attract a lot of Interest with additional upgrades (I don't mean the Power-Ups). Otherwise, it's almost perfect! By the Way, I also had the Idea of what it would be like to be able to fly forward in all Directions at once. Thus, with the Directional Buttons it would no longer be possible to fly backwards, which at most in a Successor might even Make sense. Oh and almost I forgot to mention, also enormously recommended I find BEAT HAZARD ULTRA, by the way is also very cheap for Android. FREUNDLICHE GREAT: "EUER RETRO-FREAK"!
