Review: Super Hydorah (Vita PSN) 2018-010

Developed by Locomalito and published by Abylight, Super Hydorah is a throwback to sidescrolling space shooters of the NES era, such as Gradius and Salamander, but is so much better than the games it tries to emulate. Believe it or not we actually liked this game more than Locomalito's previous Vita game, Cursed Castilla which we gave a very high level of recommendation to our readers.

Super Hydorah is an 80's inspired retro shmup that plays alot like Gradius and Salamander and is equally as challenging which is fantastic for fans of retro games! The level design is genius and at times is even better than those found in the retro games Super Hydorah attempts to emulate! There are a ton of different enemies and stages that you'll be entertained for many hours.

The game also has several different endings which adds a ton of replay value to the game! As for the gameplay itself, the game's power-up's and formula take many cues from the Gradius series. The bosses, of which there are tons, are unique and challenging and require good concentration and memory to learn their patterns to easily defeat them! The controls are easy to learn and work well for the game, and best of all Super Hydorah is PSTV compatible which always is a plus in our opinions!

Visually the game looks unique in a truly good way! First of all the foreground is all done in the style of the classic 8-bit era with nostalgic enemies, weapons, and other aspects that'll make longtime gamers feel right at home, while the background looks like 16-32 bit CD quality. The backgrounds are highly detailed and remind us of some shmup's from the SEGA CD and SEGA Saturn era. The audio soundtrack is equally amazing and quite varied. We liked the bit of voice acting the game has as well.

With flawlessly nostalgic gameplay, excellent controls, and a nearly perfect audio-visual presentation, Super Hydorah will have you hooked from the get-go, and its massive amount of content will keep you coming back for more! We give Super Hydorah for the Vita/PSTV a perfect level of recommendation!


Score: ★★★★★★★★★★ 10/10
