Xenocider (WIP)


Okay so I haven’t updated in a while but crazy news! A new rail-shooter is in development for PC/Linux/Dreamcast/3DS called Xenocider. There’s a demo available now if you want to try it out. Very Sin & Punishment-esque and while I don’t see it toppling any of the big names in the genre, it’s always good to see another competent rail-shooter.

The Kickstarter is here:


At the very least I’m gonna get a physical copy.


Yam Yam

Some kind of weird ground-based rail shooter with light RPG elements involving riding a giant fat bird thing? Whatever, just glad there’s another SNES rail shooter!

3D Shooting Tsukuru

Yes, from the makers of RPG Maker and Fighter Maker, there is indeed a Rail Shooter Maker. Yes, it has a sample game. I am so getting this…or at the very least emulating it so I can post memory card files of whatever rail shooter I manage to cobble together 😀

Katakis 3D

An unfortunately cancelled rail shooter for the…Gameboy Color?! Unseen 64 has some amazing screens that prove this was programmed by a wizard. Shame it was never released. Still getting an entry though in the hopes that one day a ROM surfaces. Until then, look at this:



It would seem more footage has surfaced with Chris Hulsbeck streaming the game (courtesy of a reader as you can see in the comments, thanks!):


No guarentees if it works…BUT! Someone made a prototype here:

What this means is the data is still out there so the ROM could be dumped or it could get a Steam release somehow or something. Please do, I’ll gladly buy it!

Star Fox Zero

😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀

Yes, new on-rails (and off) Star Fox! Shame it’s kind of a remake of Star Fox 1 AGAIN but not…but they brought back Star Fox 2’s transforming arwings which TRUST ME makes all-range mode WAAAAAAAAAAY better.

Extra Bright

Cute girls, pastel colors, and the game is called “Extra Bright”? Why not just call it “HEY GEL! BUY THIS!”. Looks like you’re stuck to the ground though. May not be very good but…I’ll take a look.
