News: 1993 – Space Machine. Go Back in Time. Really. – December 19, 2013

Space shooters never die. 1993 is a testament to that.

1993 is a classic shoot-’em-up celebrating games like Gradius, R-Type and Xenon II.

The gameplay is straight on: action packed shoot ’em up filled with shiny metal gear to grab and explore. Here’s what’s in store:

  • 12 Ships to choose from
  • 25 Different weapons
  • 3 Power levels for each of them
  • 5 Different worlds
  • 7 Bosses
  • Designed for up to 4 simultaneous players on screen

Towards the end of the interstellar wars, when chaos spread, one band of elite mercenaries acted more like pirates and looters than actual soldiers. The leader of this group was the notorious and infamous Colonel Nestor.

Without a doubt the biggest prize of their looting campaigns was the Spacemachine: a device designed to terraform barren planets and making them habitable. With this device and the rest of their treasure, Nestor and his men started to build an army that now poses a great threat to the known star systems.

The latest in armory and advanced hardware has been assembled for your mission to infiltrate Nestor’s domains and to locate and bring back the Spacemachine.

State-of-the-art technology and your superior skills as an acclaimed combat pilot are what will determine the outcome of this conflict.

1993 is NOT a new game designed to look old. 1993 is NOT an old game with updated graphics. 1993 was MADE IN 1993, and looks like games did in 1993. It’s like having a time machine. It’s 1993 in 2014.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
