While I was working at Origins Game Fair (an amazing tabletop convention), I could only play cooperative or very VERY short games because I had to make sure that everybody’s safe and enjoying themselves. So, when I got a chance, I stand down and play some of the games that were on the Capcom Classics Collection. As you would imagine, it’s a game that has a wide collection of popular games that Capcom created. I beat a few of them but only four of them was for the first time.


Twinklestar Sprites was disgusting adorable. As a puzzle game, it was sweet and bubbly and a lot of fun to play. It kinda reminded me of Bust-A-Move ’99. However, it was when I was playing that I realized that the game wasn’t really meant for adults. But I already started playing and I don’t like leaving games unfinished. It didn’t take long, either. About an hour and a half or so. It was short, sweet (literally) and to the point with a very simple story (saving the world from an evil. I’ll give it an 8 out of 10 for its cuteness.


Next, I played 1941, a shoot ’em up. Again, a short game that took me about forty-five minutes. It would have been shorter but I’m not the best when it comes down to shooters. For the life of me, I can’t focus on the storyline, if it even had one, when it comes down to shoot ’em up because I just want to shoot things up. This game gets a 9 out of 10 because it was soooo much fun.


After that, I took a stab at Mega Twin, the only game with a story that I could remember. Basically, it’s a cooperative game in which “twin sons of the king must take up the challenge and return their kingdom to its former glory”. The usual goes into a side-scrolling quest such as power-ups. The graphics were really cool and vast and the story was interesting to say the less. All and all, I would give this game an 8 out of 10 because of the very VERY short story; it only took me about an hour to complete.


Finally, I played my favorite one from the collection, Captain Commando. Funny enough, I use to have Captain Commando on rotation when playing the 2000 Capcom crossover fighting game, Marvel vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes, with Hayato and Storm as my main two fighters. The story and villain was a bit tongue-in-cheek in its presentation which was pretty refreshing. That’s why I give it a 9 out of 10.
