GOG once again teams up with Ziggurat Interactive and delivers retro fun with 8 new DRM-free games.
It hasn’t been long since GOG released 7 Ziggurat Interactive games, and now it’s 8 more titles, this time arcade classics that were developed and published by Data East in the 80ies and 90ies.
Bad Dudes, developed and published by Data East in 1988, is good-old-fashioned street brawling action about the bad dudes Blade and Striker who have to kick and punch their way through ninjas in order to save the kidnapped US president.
Express Raider, developed and published by Data East in 1986, is a Wild West-themed side-scrolling beat/shoot-em-up about an outlaw who is on a constant run against time, trying to rob a train on both foot and horseback, which obviously results in some shoot-outs and fisticuffs.
Gate of Doom, developed and published by Data East in 1990, is a fantasy action-RPG in which one chooses between four heroes to bring down monsters and demons that came from the titular opening and tries to close it forever.
Heavy Barrel, developed and published by Data East in 1987, is a sci-fi run-and-gun game about a group of terrorists who have to be brought down by a massive gun that has to be assembled (and that also gives the game its title) before they unleash nuclear war with missiles in an underground installation.
Joe & Mac – Caveman Ninja, developed and published by Data East in 1991, is a cartoon-y action-platformer about two cavemen who have to save their girlfriends kidnapped by Neanderthals, which also involves beating up dinosaurs and avoiding other prehistoric dangers.
Super BurgerTime, developed and published by Data East in 1990, is a unique arcade game about the son of a legendary chef who has to cook burgers. In order to do this he has to not only jump on the ingredients to make them fall down on top of each other, but also has to avoid vegetables and stop them with pepper.
SRD – Super Real Darwin, developed and published by Data East in 1987, is a vertical shoot-em-up about a living fighter ship that can change depending on the DNA it collects from destroyed enemies, with the ultimate goal to strike back against the invading Cokyo to guarantee the survival of the planet of Lakya.
Two Crude, developed and published by Data East in 1990, is a futuristic (or rather outdated version of the future) brawler about two mercenaries who have to save 2020 New York from mutated people and defeat an evil scientist, resulting in some comic-style over-the-top violence and humor.
All these 8 games (of which many feature fun local co-op play as well as some graphical tweak options) are now available DRM-free on GOG with a 33% launch discount that lasts until March 9, 2021, at 2 PM UTC. They can also be bought on Steam, but what better way to support good old games than on GOG?
