Arcade Recommendations

Post by Moonwalker » October 11th, 2015, 2:51 pm

Hey guys, I am getting into the arcade business again and started buying some PCBs. Since I am out since quite a long time I would like to get some recommendations. I am fond of the console and Neo Geo sector and don´t need PCB´s with good console adaptions. Mostly I am interested in SHMUPS, Bemus and Run n Guns. I have so far Viper Phase 1, some Raizing, Toaplan and Cave stuff as well as Gunforce 2.

Demon Front doesn't have a home port. Pretty nice Metal Slug-esque game.

Asura Blade and/or Asura Buster are great fighters that never saw a home port.

I second Deamon Bride, Asura Blade and Asura Buster which are fantastic Fighting Games, I would like to add Dragoon Might to that list. As for Beat 'em Ups I highly recommend Guardians/ Denjin Makai II.
