axelay_snes_box_art.jpgSure you know about the Gradius series, but what do you know of Konami’s other shooter, Axelay? This SNES shooter showcased some cool mode-7 effects, awesome stages, and had a catchy soundtrack. Stages in the game were both side-scrolling and horizontal, and there were some kick-ass boss fights, such as the lava man shown on the cover. You could select you weapons at the beginnng of each level, although some of them had limited ammo. Some of the people who worked on this game left to form Treasure, which produced the cult classic Gunstar Heroes. Not a whole lot else to say about this game, so check out the ROM, or pray that Konami brings it to Wii’s virtual console.
