Arkagis Revolution is a new top-down shooter for Sega Genesis/Mega Drive with mode 7 style rotation. Mode 7 is the term referring to the capability to fully rotate the background, creating amazing effects, like the one seen on Arkagis Revolution (see video at the end of this article).

The game website gives the tone of the game: “The story happens in the year of 2612 when humans have started to travel space and colonizing other planets. For decades, the nation of Arkagis has been under the power of a dictator. The United Space Colonies have sent an army to bring down the dictator and free Arkagis. Soon it became clear that the USC was trying to claim Arkagis for themselves. The USC army became the de facto government, under the rule of their commander, Victor. A group of Arkagian rebels has been developing a new ship in secret to take on the USC…”

The game is fast-paced and the 360 degrees rotation is not only a fancy gimmick but an integral part of the game mechanics allowing you to dodge attacks or try to flank the enemies. It is really impressive how Mega Drive manages very well such advanced graphic techniques.

The game includes the following technical features:

  • Rotating field at full speed
  • Timer for speedrunning
  • Cutscenes with voice acting
  • 60Hz/50Hz speed correction

The game was released as a trial version on July 29th and the author hopes to find a publisher (or publishers) willing to release the cartridge version. The author has also told us that a new version will be released soon, fixing small graphic glitches when running the game on the original console, so if you get the version released on the 29th, make sure to check back later for the update.
