Gemini Strike Review

Review Armor Games Inc By James Gilmour, 8 months, 1 week ago
Gemini Strike Review

While developer Cave has got the vertically-scrolling shooter market pretty much sewn up, games like Dodonpachi come with a fairly stiff price tag. Enter Gemini Stike, an arcade-inspired blaster with lots of lasers, big bosses, but zero barrier to entry.
