Shooter / Horizontal

Pack-In-Video was not the most amazing publisher for the PC Engine system and here they are back with the horizontal shooter Power Gate. The player takes control of a high-tech fighter plane and fly through canyons, enemy cities and giant battle cruisers. The fighter plane starts with a simple and slow vulcan gun which can be upgraded during the game by destroying flashing enemies, often in the shape of planes or missiles. Other power-ups are also available, like ground bombs or energy-cells restoring one of your plane shield bar. However, your fighting plane can also carry a secondary weapon. There are six of them including Homing missiles, Napalm Bomb, 8-ways and even one interesting option which will mirror your plane and triple its fire-power. This secondary weapons are triggered using the other action button, they can be collected in the same way the other items are and can be stocked up.

Hum.... Hum... What can I really say about this poor title ? Pack-In-Video failed at several attempts to conceive not even nice, but acceptable shooters, and even games like Deep Blue look better than Power Gate. However, notice here the verb look. Yet, Power Gate has a much better level design than Deep Blue and is relatively more fun to play. Graphics here are flat and the thick and hard black line surrounding every single sprite is pure ugliness. Musics and sounds effects are also on the scary side and the same soundtrack seems to have been reused in every stage. And finally, the gameplay is just wasted with your fighter firing slow and annoying putt-putt bullets. One of the ugliest HuCard shooter for sure.
