Elemental Master [Vertical Shooting Game]
Potential Pros & Cons
- Excellent visuals with detailed bosses
- Great music; Not all too different from other Technosoft games like Thunder Force and Herzog Zwei
- Seven levels to play, four difficulties to master
- Five main weapons, ten possible attacks, four power-ups
- Nice cutscenes to move the story along
- Fairly uncommon (for collectors)
- Should have been released in the U.S. sooner, better late than never
- The game is relatively easy
- Story could have been fleshed out a little more with an extra cutscene or level
- Ultimate weapon is overpowered, final battle is a little anti-climatic
"Monsters and magic and fairies, oh my! Simply put, this is another quality shooter from TechnoSoft. It was a fantastic game when it launched back in 1990, but it may seem a tad bit dated to U.S. gamers who've played some of the great Genesis/MD shooters like Gaiares and M.U.S.H.A., released years earlier in the U.S. Still, Elemental Master has a lot of quality and appeal, so if you're a SHMUP fan and you haven't played this game, I think you owe it to yourself to do just that."
