  1. Blew my socks off when I saw this was available when I got home from work yesterday. Absolutely loved this game back in the day! Couldn’t stop playing it last night until my grumbling stomach demanded some food. Just love that this came out of nowhere. Merry Christmas early everyone. 😁

  2. Actraiser is in my Super Nintendo right now, and I was just playing it 2 days ago. This is incredible, what an awesome surprise. Downloading it right now.

  3. FINALLY ActRaiser love! I've been waiting for years for a remake but this is a little bit off. I'm not a fan of the cartoon art style. I wished for more realistic characters

  4. Wellllllll i guess since they did what I was doing I can take my own project in a different direction.

    Loved the original, now remake the 2nd one , but with the sim mode it lacked.

  5. Npc stands for non playable character and the original is still great and dan is either poor at this game or the gameplay is poor in general. May listen to the game music though not sure about getting this game

  6. I'm a huge Actraiser fan but I'm kinda mixed about this remake. I enjoyed the town building but not feeling the tower defense part. The combat isn't that great they could've left it like the original game. I think they should've done it pixel art style instead that would've been alot better. Overall it's still a fun experience but the original game is still better.

  7. I don't know, it looks like a mobile phone-like flash game which is abit off putting?! But I get that they had to update the graphics and they do look nice but for some reason I kinda prefer the 1990's original graphics but that's just me I guess?! You have the 2021 version and you have the 1990 versions, play and try both and see which one you want or just own both here. Wizards & Warriors?! YES we need a remake and a ending to Kuros or a continuation.

  8. Loved the original Actraiser, but the art styles are all over the place and it looks like a bunch different contracted teams were used to throw together a game.

  9. I finished ActRaiser and then I…just don't remember anything but how awesome upgrading your dude into a centaur…beast mode to finish it. That's about it and flying around in Count Duckula's Castle…travel…thing.

  10. Wow, great job selling this game. "I struggled to find the fun"? "In a world where Chris Pratt is Mario, this is what we deserve"? Maybe if you don't like it just don't talk about the game

  11. I played the original in 1993, I'm 40 years old… the game is sensational, the songs were good, they were great… There was no other thing about playing with heroes, nor entering the enemy's lair… it was just ajno and building roads until you kill…

  12. I don't really like these remastered graphics as well. It's not the art style per se, I think it's the lack of polish with the animations, that make it look stiff, like those old crappy flash games.

    Metroid Dread has a similar art style, but the animations are so polished and fluid, it makes it look like it's leaps and bounds ahead of this one…

  13. I'M GLAD THEY REMADE ACTRAISER THE BUILDING AND DEFENDING HOUSE I LIKE BUT THE GAMEPLAY WHERE THE HERO IS FIGHTING THE CENTUAR LOOK REALLY BAD I MEAN FOR A GAME TOOK AROUND 25 YEARS THIS IS BAD
