If you grew up in the 1980’s during the rise of 8-bit đoạn phim game systems, you were sure to have seen and/or played a few top-down shooters. Many of those shooters – such as Contra, & Gauntlet – are still considered legendary til this day. One you should definitely be giving a try is Jackal.

Where Jackals Prey

Jackal’s origins came from the minds of Konami, who were already famous for the aforementioned Contra, as well as Castlevania & Metal Gear by the time Jackal was released. It was originally called Top Gunner at first when it was just an arcade game in 1986, however the name was changed khổng lồ Jackal when it was later ported to lớn the Nintenbởi vì Entertainment System (NES) in 1988.

It’s a Jeep Thing, You Wouldn’t Understand

In Jackal, your goal is lớn infiltrate the enemy’s base and rescue the prisoners of war (POW). Your tool of destruction is a jeep, but not just any jeep. A wheeling & dealing, machine-gun toting, explosive sầu launching death machine. As far as jeeps are concerned, Halo’s Warthog might even have problems with Jackal’s Jeep. The best part is that you can have sầu a frikết thúc join you, giving you double the firepower. My advice is to definitely grab a frikết thúc as the game is not easier, it’s more fun.

The view is top-down with ample distance on all sides of the jeep as you traverse the stage. The controls are simple. You can move in eight-different directions with the d-pad while using the two buttons to lớn fire your machine gun & explosives. I found them to be very responsive sầu, but the inability to ayên ổn the machine gun turret can be maddening. In the arcade version (Top Gunner), you actually have sầu the ability lớn ayên ổn the machine gun freely. However, I shouldn’t be so critical. We are working with just a NES controller after all.

Just Tell Me Where To Shoot

As you move upwards in the stage, you’ll be blowing up airplanes, infantry, tanks, và turrets of all sizes. As you progress, you’ll come across prisoners of war (POW). If you piông chồng up these POW và take them khổng lồ a nearby helipad tablet lớn be rescued, you’ll have sầu the chance khổng lồ tăng cấp your explosives. The grenade launcher upgrades to a fast-firing missile, which can then be nâng cấp further khổng lồ have splash damage. Careful though, getting shot once or touching an enemy will cost you a life và will downgrade you to lớn a grenade launcher once again. Friendly fire is off at least, otherwise it would be a nightmare with a friover playing.

The game is a total of six stages, each ending with a trùm fight. The boss fights can be tough, especially near the end. I was surprised lớn find out that the last trùm had multiple stages khổng lồ it, further increasing the difficulty if you are low on lives. While these bosses are certainly tough, the real threats are the tiny little bullets that move slowly. Combined with obstacles such as lasers or mines, you’ll have your hands full when playing.

Overall, I could not recommend Jackal more. If you’re in the mood for a fast & fun co-op experience, this is a great choice. Although it released later than similar games such as Ikari Warriors or Contra, and may not have received as much love sầu at first, I can tell you it’s right up there with those legendary shooters from the 1980’s.


Pros

Responsive sầu controls Fast, fun co-op experienceVarious enemies khổng lồ run over, shoot, và blow upEach stage brings quality traps and bosses to defeatVery challenging, but not impossible khổng lồ beat if you have a friend

Cons

The machine gun only shoots northward, meaning you’ll have to lớn put yourself in danger lớn shoot enemies oftenThe color of the jeeps look very similar, which can be confusing if you’re cthua thảm khổng lồ one another
