This game is nothing short of amazing! You play as Apollo on a mission to save his captured girlfriend. It's a well put together Vertical shooter where you get to battle Greek Mythology style enemies. You can charge up your shot to take out stronger enemies as well as a health meter to take up to four hits before you loose a life. The game gives you plenty of lives and continues to practice each level. Upon using a continue the game is generous enough to start you right back at the checkoint

REALLY tough game...That being said, I still love it! The graphics are very colorful, with large beautiful sprites. The sound effects and music, combined with solid, simple controls round it out. You only use one fire button, but that's all this game needs to be good! Who knew that a flying horse works just as well as a futuristic space ship!

This game was hard as balls for me as a kid. Still challenging today... SPEED UP SPEED UP OPTION! I loved being on a flying horse, that was enough to encourage me to play. One day I'll beat it.. Is it weird that I can smell my old house when I watch this?

My friends and I spent some time with this one. Great gameplay, graphics, and sound...nice backgrounds and voice work. A great game to pick up and play for minutes or hours.

A often overlooked shump this game is pretty good. You can charge up your weapon for a more powerful shot and a lot of strategy in the game is knowing what enemies to use the normal rapid fire shots on and who to use the power up shots on. A bit plan and basic looking but still a lot of fun.

 Power Blade - NES
"Power Blade is an awesome game and a must have for NES collectors! You play as a bad ass dude with a boomerang style blade that you can power up and kick some ass with! Even with unlimited continues the game may seem hard at first but the key is to find a safe spot to re-spawn enemies so you can maximize your power blade and regenerate health. Each stage which you can play in orders has 2 objectives. The first one is to find a key card, then you have to reach the door which contains the boss." - Truxton4life

 Transformers: The Game - Wii
"The Wii version is yet another PS2 port, with waggle. But you'll be hard pressed to find a port of this game that is any good. That goes for all systems." - sherberttcat

 Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen - Wii
"Its the EXACT same game as the PS2 version, but they had the audacity to blatantly lie, and say that it was made with the Wii in mind. You can tell this is a lie, because the PS2's package says the exact same thing about it being built with the PS2 in mind." - sherberttcat

 Transformers: Prime – The Game - Wii
"The Wii didn't get a proper "War for/Fall of Cybertron" game. But Transformers Prime does a GREAT job of filling that hole! The writers and entire voice cast of the TV show are here, and the game play really plays well to the strengths of the Wii remote and Nunchuck." - sherberttcat
