Sometimes you have to go back to go forward, for me, Midnight Resistance is a game that reminds me how far gameplay and visual presentation has come.
Put out by Data East (the king of licensed games and general cheesy games back in the day) it utilises the LS-30 controller, otherwise known as the 8 way rotating controller. The controller uses propriety connection as well as the JAMMA output for 8 way directions. The rotating aspect is spot on but the directional control could be better.
The last boss in the, ermmm, head! But he does chuck bits of himself at you for good measure..
You can achieve your goal if you put your mind to it...
All this battle takes place in space! Which is totally baffling.
