description

The evil empire is rushing at light-speed across the galaxies, heading towards Mother Earth. Barely 24 hours ago, they penetrated the last defense line of our galaxy, the Arsion Laser Belt. Millions of innocent people perished in outer space colonies. 70% of our fleet was destroyed during first contact. Our intelligence has now extrapolated their arrival within six days. Conventional weapons cannot stop them. Our last hope is in your hands: The Z-42 Warpstar. Warp into their territories and destroy their leader before they reach Earth. Last Hope is a shooting game with rotating satellite system and heavy influence by tactical game play. Memorizing level architecture and enemy patterns are necessary for further approaching. The satellite and the beam are the most important components of the game mechanics. You have to learn to deal with both techniques in interaction with the other. It is possible to rotate the protection unit in 360° around the playership and to engage it in 8 gradations. Just press "A" to shoot, "R-Trigger" to rotate clockwise and "L-Trigger" to rotate anticlockwise. The protection unit mainly serves the defense of enemy plasma projectiles and to fire a stronger plasma shot. There are four difficulty settings: very easy, easy, normal and hard. Less experienced players can enjoy the game on very easy and easy, while experienced players will enjoy the game on normal or challenging it on hard. There are a total of 6 stages. These vary from a sandily space laboratory, a channel fulfilled with muddy water, a idyllic landscape with floating continents, a soul melting enemy factory on fire to an eerily and muggy alien stage. Last Hope is comparable to classics like R-Type and Gradius. Yet it has it's own visual impressive graphic style and fresh game play. It also features a superb 16-bit digital audio soundtrack, which suits perfectly the games atmosphere. Exclusive features only available in the Dreamcast™ compatible version:
  • 16-bit CD soundtrack
  • VMU support (saving + visuals)
  • DC joypad + arcade stick support (R- and L-trigger support)
  • Use of DCs soundchips (64 channels/stereo)
Exclusive Dreamcast™ Game Modes:
  • Adjusted difficulty (Reduction of shoot frequency and flight velocity of enemy bullets / no rank)
  • Explosions / particle effects reduced for more clarity on screen
  • Better hitting response for hit enemies
  • Improved visualization of boss hit zones

Okay shooter for Dreamcast
I had been following the progress of this title on the Neo-Geo for some time. The announcement of it coming to Dreamcast was cause for joy at least from the screen shots. Fast forward many months to this release and what we get is a so-so shooter with okay graphics. I was really dissapointed with the final package. There are far better shooters out there for the Dreamcast right now with more being released almost monthly. First off it\'s just plain hard the want to throw your controller against the wall hard. Most shmups even R-type and Image Fight two of the most notoriously difficult shmups edge you into the insanity. This title right from the get go is insane. The power ups are very unbalanced and some parts when you die and start over with a pea shooter you might as well hit reset. I don\'t know if it\'s me but I just expected a lot more from this. I must commend the designers at least for making an effort to bring an original hand drawn shooter back into the mix. I just wish it was a lot better than it is. Music is okay. However I just cannot justify an extra 40 bucks for a soundtrack and a paper insert. If you must play this go for the cheaper version as there are better ways to spend 80 bucks.
