Mystic Warriors – Two Bad Dudes Gaming

Mystic Warriors! Another side scrolling Shoot ’em Up from Konami from the arcades in 1993 with up to 4 player action! The sprite quality in this game as well as the voice acting is surprisingly good for its time.

For the time it really did seem like they used a very large range of colors to make the characters and backgrounds stand out. I would say the thing that makes this game stand out the most though, is that there are actually 5 characters to choose from. If there are four players playing the game simultaneously the character not chosen is kidnapped, other wise it is randomly chosen from whoever is not picked. I thought that was a cool little story element that I don’t remember seeing in any other game. Other than that nothing really ground breaking about the game but it was still pretty fun.
