Commander Keen's on the Switch? Wowsers, looking forward to the ports of Secret Agent, One Must Fall 2097, and the Hugo and Penelope trilogy soon... I don't actually have fond memories of the Keen games, but definitely that era! So I'll skip that. I did look to see if this was going to be part of a big DOS revival project, but it looks like someone remade this independently, and then the "dev" specialises in porting games made (or in this case remade) in the Godot engine specifically. It's the least fun game publisher website I've ever seen.

Of all the Game Boy Color games I've played, The Lion King: Simba's Mighty Adventure was one of them. 5/10.

Advanced Busterhawk Gleylancer might be the coolest name for a game I’ve ever heard. It’s also about as obscure as it gets: it’s a Japanese-exclusive Mega Drive shmup that’s only been released three times in the last thirty years. The first release is now so rare that there’s no sales info about it on Price Charting. That was followed up by an low-cost unlicensed reprint for the Mega Drive itself in 2019. The other rerelease in between was on the Wii Virtual Console in the late 2000s. Of course it’s the latter I have – it was the last game I downloaded before the Wii Shopping Channel shut two years ago.

Nobody talks about shmups on here, and that’s disappointing as there’s loads of really, really good ones knocking about. Side-scrolling shooters work so well on the Mega Drive in particular, the faster (blast) processing speed of the console makes them run so much better than they do on the SNES. Gleylancer is no exception to that. 

Advanced Busterhawk Gleylancer doesn’t rewrite history and it wins no points for originality, but it’s nevertheless a very playable, durable horizontal shmup. It’s got the obligatory pumping soundtrack, varied and powerful weapons that are satisfying to use, enemy designs with imagination and the sound samples and presentation are pretty impressive for a Mega Drive game. Even the difficulty is well judged – even an absolute beginner could make a decent dent into this on their first try. It's a good all-rounder that's worth your curiousity. 7/10.
