Darius Cozmic Collection Arcade Free Download Unfitgirl Now, admittedly, that’s a little bit of a controversial statement – for posterity, you’ve got three versions of the original Darius, three versions of its sequel Darius II (and Sagaia variation) and the excellent Darius Gaiden bringing up the rear. These are good games and well worth playing, but – and hardcore shmup fans will contest this – the variants are not that different. Starting (sensibly) with Darius, you’ve got the original three-screen ultra-wide shooter here, the inaugural mission of the Silver Hawk ship in its quest to destroy a captain’s table’s worth of seafood. The widescreen gimmick is really cool but it ultimately means you’ve got a lot more to pay attention to, and when even the fodder enemies seem to take multiple hits, you’ll have your work cut out. Losing a ship will cause you to drop all your power-ups ala Gradius, so unless you’re good you’ll be spending a lot of time with a weedy little peashooter. Included Darius variants “New Version” and “Extra Version” mitigate this slightly with rebalancing, but they’re still no picnic. Darius II reduces the number of screens to two, but this helps you focus as a player (as well as appreciate the still-amazing sprite work). As if in response to this concession, the game is far harder – bullets and enemy ships flood the screen within seconds. It’s otherwise very similar to the original, and similarly compelling. Included variations of Sagaia adjust both the difficulty and the order you visit the levels, but none of them are huge change-ups. Unfitgirl.COM SEXY GAMES
Finally, the stand-out game of the package is Darius Gaiden; only a single screen here, but it’s possibly even harder than its predecessors. The spectacular boss battles and bizarre, haunting soundtrack are extremely memorable and – as with all the games in the package – it’s emulated brilliantly. The oddest thing about Cozmic Collection Arcade is its lack of extras, so to speak; there are training modes for each game that let you play fully-powered and select your stage. This way you can check out those later levels that you may never see in normal gameplay. Besides this and the expected options menus, there’s no galleries or anything to put the games into historical context, aside from a short blurb next to each one in the main menu. Darius Cozmic Collection Arcade is a good compilation and the titles included are of a high quality, but as comprehensive as it is, it’s still a little limited for the price. Enthusiasts, however, will be delighted by it. While Gradius featured technologically advanced space craft, R-Type made you battle bio-organic nightmares inspired by the film Alien, Darius had you shooting fish. The cannon fodder enemies are the usual mix of gun turrets and spaceships, but boss battles are all themed around fish. Maybe game creator Akira Fujita hated sushi? Darius became a huge hit and was the most successful arcade game of the year, spawning multiple sequels and spin offs and being ported to the consoles of the time, including the SNES, Mega Drive and PC Engine.
Darius! Not Gradius!
Developer M2 has now assembled an array of ports in two collections, one focused on the arcade versions and a second which collects the console port. both are available on Switch and PlayStation 4. The Arcade Collection includes Darius (Old Version), the original three screen cabinet version, Darius (New Version), which is identical apart from re-balanced the boss fights, and Darius (Extra Version), which changed some enemy patterns and made the first half of the game easier. You can play in Normal Mode, identical to the arcade cabinet, or training mode in which you can alter the power ups to give you maximum firepower from the the start and choose the zone to play, of which there are 26. To get three CRT screens on one modern widescreen TV, the gameplay area is a narrow band that uses barely a third of the screen. The rest is filled images from the arcade cabinets, all of which are in Japanese so add to the accuracy of the port but feel a bit pointless. Unfortunately this has the opposite effect the original arcade game had; sitting ten feet away from a modern 58″ TV, the sprites are tiny and the grandeur is lost. It also highlights the rather rather interesting collision detection. Your missiles only have to be in the general vicinity of an enemy to make them explode as you are covering such a wide area.

As you might expect from a coin-op from the 80’s it is incredibly hard. You do get shields which absorb some attacks, but if you die, all your power ups are lost. If you want to see every level in the branching story then you are going to have to be incredibly, incredibly good at shoot ’em ups or make judicious use of the save feature which lets you restart from any point in the game. Darius II, the Japanese twin-screen sequel is also included, bringing with it the ability to change the direction of your ship during boss battles. Its worldwide versions, known as Sagaia, are also included, both tweaking stages and gameplay to make them a little easier. The last game is Darius Gaiden, originally released in 1994 and the first game in the series that was made for single screen coin-ops. The evolution of the series over time is clear, Darius Gaiden is light years away from the barely animated sprites of the original game with large, colourful graphics and a rocking soundtrack that includes vocals. There are pseudo-3D effects as enemies whizzing in and out of the screen, plus the inclusion of now standard weapons such as smart bombs, the Gaiden version of which creates a massive black hole that sucks in all the enemies and bullets. The game is also more forgiving that earlier entries and feels easier now that it’s only played across one screen, although the boss battles are still tough as old boots.
Arcade Collection & Console Collection
If your friends think they’re good beating a boss in Sekiro then just give them Darius Gaiden and see how far they get. Overall the Arcade collection is a mixed bag. The original couple of Darius games have not aged that well, partly due to the need to push them in to narrow bands on the screen, but Gaiden remains immensely playable and a lot of fun, especially in two player mode. The Console Collection, which is a separate purchase, collates the ports and regional releases of the games to the consoles of the time. This includes Darius II on Sega Mega Drive, Sagaia and Darius Twin for the Sega Genesis and Master System, Darius Force, the first original Darius console title that was created for the Super Famicon and the NES port of the same game, another Famicom original which is also presented as Super Nova on NES, and Darius Plus on PC Engine. The jewel in the crown, at least for Darius fans, is Darius Alpha, a boss rush version of Darius Plus of which only 800 copies were ever made. While retaining the Darius name, these games differ from the arcade games considerably as they were all designed for single screen play. Some have not aged too badly, Darius II on Megadrive is still a good shooter, but others like the Master System version of Sagaia is a mess of flickering graphics and jerking backgrounds. Need for Speed Heat
The limitations of the earlier consoles are also easy to spot, as they could only handle a certain number of sprites on the screen at once, and thus limited the number of bullets you could fire. However, once a bullet hits something you get to fire another, letting you cheese some sections by getting close to enemies and firing four times as many bullets in to them compared to if you were at range! Darius Twin on Famicom benefits from being designed exclusively for the console rather than trying to mimic arcade hardware, and the SNES port also holds up well retaining the bright colourful graphics, albeit in a slightly chunkier form. Darius Force and Supernova, which are also console exclusives, add in features from other shooters such as the ability to choose a ship type when you start. R-Type is clearly a big influence with the first boss, “Bio Hazard”, clearly a rip off of the first boss from R-Type. These games were also the first to steer away from the fishy side of things with enemies based on dinosaurs and other creatures.Overall the conversions seems to be fairly accurate – I am relying on my memories from over thirty years ago – but each collection has a couple of stone cold classics and some older, rather ropier games. It’s not the games that are the issues, it’s how they have been made available.
Let’s go under the sea in the single-screen
At first glance, it appears as if Darius Cozmic Collection Arcade is a compilation of 7 arcade games from the franchise but it’s essentially only 3 with the first couple of games featuring a few versions each. First up, we have the original Darius from 1987. For its time, it’s an incredible shoot ’em up and its most striking feature is that its visuals expand 3 arcade screens. As a result, it looks quite tiny on a 16:9 television but at least it’s authentic. When it comes to gameplay, it features an exceptionally rewarding power-up system that allows you to strengthen your missile and bomb attacks as well as shields. Considering the stages are so wide, it’s an impressively challenging game with plenty of intricate layouts that you have to navigate while weaving through enemies and their projectiles. In fact, it can feel downright unfair at times. Plus, you can’t even rely on your memory since the levels and enemy patterns are quite unpredictable. Although the first game is tough, it’s a fantastic arcade experience and one incredible aspect about it as well as all of the featured games is that the stages are presented with branching paths at the end of each which increases the replay value substantially. I can’t imagine how long it would take to master every single path in each game. Anyway, next we have Darius II (AKA Sagaia) from 1989 which only utilized 2 horizontal screens. Need For Speed 2 Shift Unleashed
It plays similarly to the first game although it’s much faster-paced and features vastly improved graphics and sound as well as a cool new laser weapon. Finally, 1994’s single-screen Darius Gaiden is a phenomenal shoot ’em up sequel that’s bursting with action-packed gameplay throughout its varied campaign. Its gameplay is very simple as all you do is use 1 button to shoot and another for screen-clearing bombs which marks the first time they’re used in the series. You can even capture mini-bosses! I’m very happy with having all 3 original arcade Darius games in one comprehensive package. Plus, the fact that you can experience the first 2 games with a few different variations is a great addition. However, I can’t help but be perplexed as to why G-Darius wasn’t included. In my opinion, that’s the best old-school Darius game so its absence is definitely disappointing. On the plus side, the 3 included games are each fantastic arcade shooters that are actually difficult to come by on console. As a matter of fact, the only one of these games that I own an authentic arcade home port of is Darius Gaiden which is on Taito Legends 2. If you have the PlayStation 2 release of Taito Legends 2, you can also play the arcade version of G-Darius so I recommend picking up a copy if you still own a PS2. Last but certainly not least, let’s discuss Darius Cozmic Collection Arcade’s extras.
The coolest addition is the fact that you can display all sorts of information onscreen outside of the play area. Being able to see bosses’ HP meters, your shield’s strength, the current song’s title, your collected power-ups, and the zone map whenever you pause the action is simply amazing. You can also save, download, and watch replays which is a great inclusion although there is a missed opportunity with the lack of museum-style content. Darius Cozmic Collection Arcade includes 3 of the most underrated and incredible arcade shooters ever created. Although G-Darius is disappointingly absent, what you get is one super-fun collection that features some truly innovative HUD options. In terms of presentation, Darius Cozmic Collection Arcade doesn’t disappoint. In addition to an abundance of settings to control the difficulty (which will help you ease into the experience instead of crashing and burning moments after you begin) and overall presentation (such as adding those tasty CRT scanlines), Taito actually took the time to provide some important information about the titles you’ll play. For those of us who appreciate gaming history, it allows players to put the games into context, which could, in theory, help you appreciate these titles just a bit more.
