Ben and VGTO looks at the import cute-em-up, Harmful Park, for the PSX.
Looks like a solid game! It’s a shame it goes for as much money as it does.
great review, but yeah, 100 dollars for a shoot em up….no thanks
Awesome review! I just read about this game in the past week on other site. I think the stars of the game are two sisters who are sent to beat the bad guys at the harmful park by their mom. Thanks I think Retroware TV needs more horizontal shooter videos (and vertical shooter videos too).
Looks like a crazy game indeed…
its a freaking great PSX game
Nice review! If you like this game’s style you should definetely give the
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cotton_(series) a go
I have played some of those games a very little bit but they are also generally very expensive. However I agree that they seemed interesting.
holy shit more ben. glad to see your back on the site dude. great video btw, im not a fan of “cute em ups” but that game looks amazingly good. and to me a stunning example of how there needs to be more 2D games being made nowadays. cause with more memory/a more powerful system. 2D graphics can look really amazing when done right
I agree, 2D is beautiful if done well.
I think new consoles move away from it because of the price of HD pixelated art being animated. Vanillaware is an excellent example of a company that does it but barely stays in business.
However with the Price of 3D ever rising, at some point I hope 2D will become a viable option again.
Ben Rules. It seems often times RWTV is kind of slow in producing content and if Ben can keep pumping out new videos every few weeks at least that would make me SO HAPPY.
To be fair to the guys, they have been doing it non stop. I took a huge break.
It becomes very hard to keep a consistent schedule over a long period of time.
The guys work hard on their shows. other sites have more frequent updates, but I find few that have as much content in each video or put as much effort into makaing the best videos they possibly can (as I feel the other contributors on this site do).
Just my 2 cents.
Thanks for the kind words about me though. I can always do with more of those. lol
Well, I stick around RWTV because I think the content that gets produced and created is very high quality, informative, and enjoyable. That wasn’t intended as an insult to anyone who produces content here; it was just earnest appreciation at the prospect of have more content from more contributors thus creating more frequent updates.
I totally understand where you’re coming from.
Game looks very interesting. You did get the story right. From the clips you’ve shown, it has something to do with a theme park being taken over by a mad man to use for his evil deeds. They get some help with weird machines to stop the mad man.
These are not my types of games but your review made it very interesting to wanna play it. :>
Harmful Park reminds me of another game except you shoot with a gun. Which was called Carnevil. Or something like that.
I’ve played Carnevil at like a Chuck E. Cheese or something. lol
I have that shirt. =-) now that I think about it…I have a lot of Rocky shirts. lol
Cool review. Not a fan of shoot’em ups…or even cute’em ups. Just not my style of game. Fun to check it out anyway though. =-)
I’m not a big shoot em up fan either, but sometimes a game just strikes my fancy. I totally understand if it’s not for you.
Enjoyable review, but I found the volume of the music distracting.
I know that when Jew Wario reviewed this he said that you could get the game for 600 yen (about $6) on the Japanese psn.
