Atari and Killspace Entertainment are rebooting Yars’ Revenge by giving it an anime makeover. The original game players controlled a bug-like alien. In the 2011 game, the main character is a woman in insect armor.
While both games are shooters, Yars’ Revenge (2011) is an on-rails shooter with three main kinds of weapons: regular laser, lock-on missiles, and a railgun for enemies on the ground. Kind of reminds me of Panzer Dragoon… sans dragons.
