Description of Strider

This is a good PC conversion of the arcade hit by Capcom that is best described as futuristic ninja combat. Anachronistic weapons and enemies only make the game more fun, with lots of surprises along the way.

Strider is yet another good platform game that went unnoticed by most. The game is also easier than average, which makes it ideal for novice gamers.

Wa, wa, wa.... What a bunch of whiners. Just like my husband who pretends to be president.

kind stupid to complain about bad conversions or design choices 30 years later, its not like they can do anything about it. You can just play the Arcade, Sharp, Turbo versions anyway.

Well there's so much black! Why can't they add backgrounds! I know this game is using the EGA 16-color palette, but that's just a lame excuse if that's the reason why it doesn't have backgrounds! US Gold just likes to ruin everything. Not to mention, the controls suck.

...The arcade version of this suffered from some poor QC on some of the MB components and this one daughterboard would overheat and catch fire. Capcom wound up having to replace a lot of boards, and didn't make as much money off of this as the arcade owners did as a result. Fun game until Gauntlet came out, natch.
