Shock Troopers (Neo Geo MVS/WiiVC 1997)

Next up in our Neo Geo reviews is Shock Troopers! Shock Troopers was released in 1997 on the MVS but never on the AES or Neo Geo CD systems which is a shame.

Windjammers (Neo Geo CD 1995)

This review marks a breakthrough for the website as in this is our first Neo Geo game review.

Still, no one can afford the AES games and for all the games that were not released on the Neo Geo CD and/or if i feel want to have a set number of credits in some games i get the game for the Wii Virtual Console.
Windjammers (Flying Power Disc) was released in 1995 and it is a head to head pong game in a fancy suit. Great fun and a great way to break into the Neo Geo library also because the game is set for release on the PS4 with online functionality.
