Aero Fighters (SNES) Gameplay

Aero Fighters (known as Sonic Wings in Japan) is a vertical-scrolling shoot ’em up (“shmup”) arcade game released in 1992 by Video System, ported to the Super Famicom in 1993 and the Super Nintendo in 1994, and spawned two sequels for the Neo-Geo, one for the PlayStation and Sega Saturn (both only in Japan) and a 3-D sequel on the Nintendo 64.

The first sequel was notorious for multiple instances of Engrish, such as “I never thought I’d be frying over a jungle.”

Aero Fighters Gameplay

When you first play the game you will notice that there isen’t much to do. You select a plane, and start tapping the shoot button, sometimes firing a bomb and avoiding enemy fire. Although this is what most retro games are like, this one has one HUGE flaw. The game just is too short. If you have a friend you can play multiplayer to add to the play length but after a while it gets boring.

If there would be more levels it would be a good game but 10 just is too little. On top of that the game is really easy making you reach the final boss before you know it. I have to admit that that boss was very fun, much harder than the rest of the game and because of it’s multiple forms it gave you a reason to play the game again. My advice: download the rom and a snes emulater ans try it if you have some spare time.
