Bangai O

We start strong by talking about the Bangai-O license, but not just any DreamCast one! Seen as the best, this shoot’em up signed Treasure and Virgin Interactive, will take you back to your childhood. You control a very powerful mech with very heavy weapons. You will be immersed in a futuristic universe where a fight between you and Cosmo Gang, your enemy, is inevitable. Released on both DreamCast and Nintendo 64, the franchise does not stop there and continues in 2008 with Bangai-O Spirits on Nintendo DS.

Release date : 2000


Cannon Spike

Cannon Spike qualifies as the last DreamCast game to be released in Europe before the console runs out of steam. Originally from an arcade game, it uses exactly the codes on its DreamCast version. The game uses most of Capcom’s emblematic heroes, much appreciated for the homage that pays to mythical characters such as Megaman or Cammy from Street Fighter. The scenario ? A group of terrorist robots threatens Earth, and the heroes of Capcom come together to fight them by forming Special Anti-Robot Unit. A somewhat complex story, but which has the honor of being original.

Release date : 2002


Carrier

Carrier surely tells you nothing and indeed, he has never been released in France. Despite a French translation, players eager to get it had to go to shops in the United Kingdom in order to play this famous Caesar. The Japanese survival-Horror takes place in 2023, in a post-apocalyptic world where you play as Jack Ingles, a member of the investigation team gone in search of a lost ship where his brother is there. Reminiscent of Resident Evil: Code Veronica for its three-dimensional setting, the player will walk through a multitude of corridors and decks of the ship in search of keys and weapons against the creatures that are there.

Release date : 2001

D2

Let’s stay in survival-horror with D.2, one of the games developed by SEGA and WARP. It is the very first game to be officially announced on DreamCast by SEGA. Combining shooting and role-playing games, we find Laura lost in a world called Tundra after a plane crash. Totally amnesiac, you will have to advance in the game little by little in order to allow the heroine to regain her memory. A very good game with a heavy atmosphere and a very adult scenario, even if you have to understand English or Japanese well, because unfortunately the game has never been released in France.

Release date : unknown

Fur Fighters

Combining platforming, combat and puzzles, you take control of a group of animals with a unique style. Between the kangaroo, the penguin, the cat or the dog, you have to fight in order to save the baby animals that have been kidnapped. Overarmed and trained, your companions must move through a fully 3D environment where every skill of every animal matters. Fur Fighters sets up an appreciable gameplay where there is a single-player chapter, but the two-player mode is much more recommended.

Release date : 2000

Hydro Thunder

A racing game yes, but with boats! Hydro Thunder, released on DreamCast, is a racing game where you drive many overpowered boats through various settings. Eurocom and Midway offer us a game where the goal is to win by avoiding the traps on your way, by overtaking your opponents and by grabbing the turbo bonuses on the thirteen courses offered, similar to a car race. Nevertheless, the game has multiple weaknesses, such as graphics, bugs and slowdowns. But that doesn’t stop it from being a good game.

Release date : 1999


Mars Matrix

Mars Matrix by its full name Mars Matrix: Hyper Solid Shooting, is a vertical scrolling shoot’em up game developed by Takumi and Capcom on the SEGA console. Based on a system of absorbing shots from your opponents, the stronger your enemy’s energy, the more powerful your shot will be. You have to fight in a ship during six levels, where many bosses will prevent you from advancing. A good action game to rediscover for the more adventurous among you.

Project Justice
