Game Overview

Following the hit arcade title released in 1995, Game Tengoku hit the Sega Saturn in 1997. It was a character based shmup executed with enough finesse as to make other shooting games envious. It featured classic Jaleco characters mixed in with all-new original characters voiced by a number of popular voice actors and art by famous manga artist Tatsuya Souma. Game Tengouku managed to be a character-centric game without succumbing to any of the cut corners that usually come with such a title.

It's such a privilege to be able to say I've lived through that era of gaming, and to see just how much the industry has evolved since the 90's.
