This vertical climbing hack and slash starts you as the character Arok, one of the three demons that you are able to choose from once you finish the game. As you start, you are using a double jump feature as well as an extra boost jump off of enemies.  With the double jump, there is a left and right flint type of movement that can get you past an enemy.

Like a few other reviews I have done, I have also played this on the Nintendo Switch and loved it. The thing is, when you convert something like this to an arcade atmosphere, it changes the experience level by 1000! The one thing that I really missed when I played it on the iiRcade was the rumble feature that was being used on the Switch, but this is a minor feature that is simply overlooked because of everything else.

Within the menu option, you can now choose the type of scan line you would like to have. For some games, like the classic 80’s games, this is perfect.

Brad has been a die hard arcade fan ever since he can remember. From the first time he played Space Invaders, to the first time he played Pacman, Brad has always had a love for video games. Hanging out at either the Great American Fun Factory in the mall, or spending the night in front of the glowing games at the local roller rink, he was always thinking about when he can spend the next quarter. He also worked at Babbages, which is now GameStop, for over six years. Mostly because they had a really sweet checkout policy on new products and great discounts. But since he had the Atari 2600, he has never looked back and owned some of the greatest home machines, NES, SNES, GENESIS, Turbo Graphix 16, GameBoy, Game Gear, Lynx, Playsation 1,2,3,4 and Vita, XBOX, Gamecube, and N64...just to name a few. Brad is also a reviewer for Mobile Beat Magazine as well as a freelance videographer, part time disc jockey, performing artist and photographer. But has a true love is for video games and Star Wars, as he is a member of the 501st Central Garrison. His ultimate dream is to own a fully working pinball machine and arcade machine. Difficult to say which one, but a Star Wars one would be nice start.
