3 jewels from my friend Iván - thanks crack! #vigilante #dragonspirit #parasolstars #pcengine #turbografx16

I was fortunate enough as a kid to have access to a game store owned by a couple of guys who loved the Turbografx and carried many different games for it. Thanks to that store, I got to play games like Dungeon Explorer 2, Vasteel, and Bomberman '93, which were otherwise relatively difficult to find.
.
But they never had Parasol Stars.
.
I was aware of it then, and very much wanted to play it since I was such a fan of the original Bubble Bobble, both at the arcade and for the NES. But unfortunately, Parasol Stars was extremely elusive, getting purchased very quickly any time the store got a used copy. I always felt like I just missed it.
.
Fast forward to today, and I'm finally able to enjoy some of these games that ghosted me when I was a kid. Some don't quite live up to expectations, which is to be expected. Twenty plus years is a long time to hype a game up in your head. Parasol Stars, however, nails it.
.
I wanted a more colourful and graphically superior version of Bubble Bobble and that's exactly what Parasol Stars is. We're not reinventing the wheel here. The levels start simply and get more complex as you progress, just like the original. The control scheme is simple and extremely easy to pick up, much like the core gameplay which requires virtually no explanation.
.
Having played it for over an hour, I doubt it's a game I'll ever finish. But I don't have to. Sometimes I just want a game like Parasol Stars to add some colour and simplicity to my day.

#20170728 会社の歓迎会から帰ってきて疲れたー(だから何)。
……ので、なんとなく今日は #ゲーム (笑)。 #PCエンジン #Huカード のゲームでのお気に入り 4作品を撮影☆
#マジカルチェイス
#奇々怪界
#最後の忍道
#パラソルスター

マジカルチェイスはPCエンジンオリジナル #シューティング 。これがめっちゃ完成度高く、初期の段階でプレミアに。販売元の #パルソフト 倒産後に、PC Engine FAN の徳間書店が代わって受注販売による再販をしたんですよね……。マジカルチェイスについては後日改めて語りたい(笑)

奇々怪界はアーケード移植。アーケードまんまとは言わないですが、ナイスな移植!

最後の忍道 もまたアーケード移植であり移植度も実に高い!PCエンジン版が唯一の移植では?

パラソルスター は #バブルボブル シリーズでサブタイトルに「Story of Bubble Bobble III」という記載が。
バブルボブル、IIにあたるレインボーアイランドはアーケードですがこれはPCがエンジンオリジナル。アーケードに登場しても十分通じる完成度で、PCエンジンユーザとしてはこれを持っていることが誇りでした(^^; PCエンジンはアクションゲームの宝庫です。

Parasol Stars for the game boy. The third in the bubble bobble series and great classic portable fun! #gameboy #nintendo #parasolstars #portablegaming #portable #retrocollection #videogames #videogamecollector #handheld #ocean #8bit #80s #90s

Mail day. Think I just need Vasteel and Exile 2 for the full North American Working Designs set. Also just need to pick up Cyberia from @bsaramaclay and that's the full longbox set. Still need 2 more of the collectors editions and all those will be done. And yes, I'm the guy who buys CDI games. Dragons Lair II was an arcade favorite in my teen years. Excited to be finishing off collecting goals I've been staring at on an Excel sheet for the last couple years, can't wait for spring to hunt and finish it all. #retrocommunity #retrocollective #retrogaming #ps2 #ps1 #playstation #philipscdi #cdi #disccollective #tombraider #tg16 #turbografx16 #parasolstars #workingdesigns#dragonslair

Like Bubble Bobble?? Then you'll love Parasol Stars! The third game in the series, this puzzle game offers bright and colourful sprites matched with a catchy soundtrack and very addictive single-player or cooperative ganeplay. Unfortunately, like most TurboGrafx games, it's climbing steadily in price.
