Sylphia

version: jp - year: 1993 - developer: tonkin house - publisher: tonkin house - format: pc engine, cdrom - condition: mint, w/o spine - rarity: very

Review - Rare vertical shooter with an inspired greek mythology theme, similar to Phelios.

It is one of the last gems to hit the system as it came out in 1993. Sylphia uses the hardware to its limits pumping crisp and very detailed graphics, a fast scrolling and no slowdown.

The music is excellent. When the base kicks in, it really sets the right rhythm for the action. A final note on the intro: captivating!

Bottom line: one of the most expensive and best shooters available on the pc engine...9/10
