Something Wicked This Way Comes

Some quick impressions on that VASARA Collection:That's really nice price for two games. Now waiting for the reviews to pop up
-I played a couple of minutes of each of the two older games, and everything seems to be in order; you have the usual options you may expect from a shmup (including the option to rotate the screen, to play vertically, disable wallpapers, and so on); by default, the games have a soft, overly filtered look because of a filter, but you can disable it in the options;
-there's also a bonus mode, called VASARA Timeless, that is actually constructed with new assets (it's essentially an endless, score based game, built on Unity with new assets made by the team that is publishing this release, inspired by the VASARA games); some things in this mode look good, some look kind of cheap; it's a mixed bag, really.
-there's also a few extras, like a gallery of artwork (most from that bonus mode).
For the current asking price (which would be like a couple of credits on each of the arcade machines), it's worth a buy.
Nothing particularly essential, but the team behind this release clearly tried to offer a good package, even if the new mode/game VASARA Timeless is a bit of a mixed bag.
