Pocky and Rocky is Back
If you loved the original Pocky and Rocky games on the SNES, what you'll find here is a faithful reimagining of the series with beautiful updated graphics and a couple extra bells and whistles to test your mettle.
If you're coming into this game blind, expect something very old school, especially in the difficulty department! The story mode has enough checkpoints that you can at least beat the game with enough continues, but the harder difficulty levels and trophies will require you to replay the game over and over again to learn enemy patterns and proper strategies. Thankfully it's a short run, and if you're good, you can beat the entire game in a little over an hour. The additional characters mix up the gameplay significantly, but that gameplay is the sole replayability factor here.
Overall, Reshrined is a cute and nostalgic romp from a bygone era. If you're the type of gamer that likes to master something, this is an excellent pickup.

A retro remake done right
An awesome remake of the SNES / SFC cult classic. Challenging but rewarding; easy to play, hard to master. Also, a real master class on how pixel art should be done in the 2020's -forget about your average retro-modern-indie bulls***, this is the real deal.

A perfect redo of the original
Iirc, two of the original creators of this series worked on this team to create this amazing gem. The soul of the original is there with new life breathed in with creativity that has aged like fine wine. Plays flawlessly on PS4. I'm so happy to see such a fine example of what pixel art games should be in this era of 3D. It's an upgrade and a re-imagining of the original.

Not a remake but very familiar if you have played the SNES games. Tough as nails but with memorization you should be good. Fun game play. Awesome soundtrack. Make sure to grab this version and not the censored US version!
