DariusBurst Second Prologue Arrives on the App Store

by Jasdeep SahotaFebruary 12, 2012

The Darius series has had a long gaming legacy that stretches all the way back to the arcades in 1986. Its games have graced multiple platforms across vastly different console generations- from the ZX Spectrum to the PlayStation to the current batch of i-devices. The franchise received a long-awaited revival in 2009 with the release of DariusBurst for the PSP, but now Square Enix are taking those ideas even further will the launch of DaruisBurst: Second Prologue for iphone, ipod touch and ipad. Second Prologue incorporates the key features of the original DariusBurst as well as components from its arcade follow-up DariusBurst: Another Chronicle to create a fresh shoot-em-up experience.

The new version touts “remixed” single player options, beginner friendly ships, customizable touch controls, music tracks from  Taito’s Zuntata sound team and an unlockable in-game visual catalogue. The game also packs 59 Game Center achievements and a set of global leaderboards to help measure your skill.

If you fancy a slice of shmup action, then you can pick up DariusBust: Second Prologue on the AppStore for $10.99. For more detailed information, check out the game’s full press release.

    I know you could system Simple on a spectrum but the genuine games, were they written in assembler?

    Do anyone remember the names of some ZX spectrum platform adventure games about a little egg man?
    This was a little egg shaped man that had to find his way through his world to solve quests. Was out around the same time as Abe’s oddessy/exodus. I realise that this is from a lifetime ago when Clive Sinclair was doing his bit in the computer world. And was probably available in other formats,atari,commodore 64 etc. Help would be most appreciated. Thanks.

    This has always baffled me. I’m no tech guru, but despite being ages old – I’ve found myself quite curious how the old ZX Spectrum computers worked. When a friend of mine dug his “speccy” out and showed it to me, my mind was completely baffled when I saw that the games he had were on cassette tapes. How did they record data – of all things – to tapes? How did the computers read the tapes? Did they have to be “rewound” like music/video cassettes?

    or your C64 for the slightly posher kids.
    I stupidly gave my 48k away to a friends kid. I suppose it got played with again. Knight Lore!
    Was Atari not a bit posher still?
