The rough gfx look great on the Pandora's tiny display.

Mostly I use WinUAE on my laptop but sometimes I play on my trusty old Pandora from 2010.

I don't think there will be new Pandoras produced. It's all about its successor, the Pyra, now. But that one has a pretty high price point (and isn't finished yet).
Got the Pandora for 250 Euros back then. They're more expensive now!

Yes, the Pyra is the one i was referring too. 500 euros is pretty steep.


I always wanted a Pandora, I do a fair amount of SNES emulation and thought it might be ideal for that.

The SNES-emulator is not very good on Pandora. I only play SNES games with bsnes in Retroarch on PC these days.
The PS Vita has been hacked recently. You could get one for ~100$. It needs to still be on firmware 3.60 (or below) to be able to use homebrew. I think it should have good SNES-emulation.

Amiga, Mega Drive/Genesis, PlayStation 1 and GameBoy Advance all run very well on Pandora though.

Considering SWIV's 100%- and Battle Squadron's 109%-rating I'd rate Mega Typhoon 115%.

edit: Good progress, liviux.

Two players are certainly keeping the EAB flag flying at the moment, but where's everyone else? The Lemon mob have wasted no time getting stuck in to this game...

As for the game itself... I blinked and missed it, pretty much. There's an awful lot going on. Probably too much to make out sometimes.

@John4p:. I used to read Amiga Action and Amiga Format (still do sometimes!). For the 4/5 games I could afford each year I'd obsess over the reviews. Longevity of play/interest was fundamental to my choice, hence I never bought a shoot em up, I was much more into rpgs or SWOS or F1GP.

So I agree, the reviews for battle squadron et all are strange, and mega typhoon does best them all possibly.
