Road to the Future: Hiroyuki Iwatsuki Omega Five interview

By Jerisaka . May 5, 2008 . 6:55pm

Omega Five is a horizontal shooter for the Xbox Live Arcade, featuring an unlockable retro mode, during which both the graphics and sound are stylized to imitate 16-bit hardware.  The soundtrack represents a new take on the sidescrolling shooter by revisiting previous conventions of the genre.  The score by Natsume veteran composer Hiroyuki Iwatsuki contains […]

Navigating through Omega Five’s living levels

I don’t know how Ruby can fly around in the Glacial Fortress without freezing to death because she is wearing leggings. Or why Tempest has four arms and only carries one gun (seriously?). But I do know Omega Five is intense. Not seizure inducing, flickering bullet dodging intense. More like watch your back because a […]

When you kick off Omega Five you can choose between two characters I opted for the heavy shooting space pirate at the beginning, but I found the cybernetic female more my style. She has a 360 degree laser beam and a claw that locks on and latches on to enemies.   The first level puts […]

Someone is playing Omega Five!

By Spencer . June 14, 2007 . 10:54pm

It looks like Hudson had a party and one of the games at their event was Omega Five. There is an interesting partnership behind its development, Natsume (the people behind Harvest Moon) and Hudson teamed up to make this side scrolling shooter. No flying farmers are found in Omega Five, but there are girls with […]
