A classic fun shoot´em up, which brings back memories from R-Type, darius and Gradius, and offers great multiplayer and replayability. On the downside, it´s not too long and difficulty is not always well balanced.

Fun & fast, Super Hydora goes straight into the player's retro feelings, offering a very solid and hard experience based on classics like Nemesis and Andro dunos. Great game.

A great -but short- homage to the old shoot'em up classic that is as hard as satisfying.

Hard, stylish and high in replayability. Too bad for the occasional slowdowns in an otherwise excellent shooter.

A solid if unspectacular entry into the shoot ‘em up stable, Super Hydorah at least provides a decent amount of bang for your buck.

Super Hydorah is a contemporary 'shmup' perfect for the lovers of the 16-bit genre. A good title and a love letter to the fans of horizontal scrolling stellar battles, which will find in it a great variety of scenarios, enemies and bosses, who will not make it easy to achieve the objectives.

Super Hydorah follows the footsteps of old-school 2D shooters of the 16-bit era and inevitably, the result is a game with a very demanding difficulty level (which ventures into frustration at some moments), along with some very eye-filling visuals. Super Hydorah is an experience that lives up to the 2D shooters of other days and a very worthy effort within the Nintendo Switch catalogue.

This is an old-school 2D shooter that serves as an effective tribute to the classics while successfully managing to inject some fresh ideas of its own. Super Hydorah doesn't reinvent the side-scrolling shmup, but it does kit it out with some cool new gadgets. At $19.99 / £17.49 it's perhaps a little on the pricey side, but fans of the genre will see this as money well spent.

Super Hydorah is a solid tribute to old-school shoot ‘em up that also does its own thing to give us a great PS4 release you need to play. Older players who actually went to the arcade back in the 1980s are going to love this one, and those new to the genre are going to find a great 2D pixel shooter to keep them busy for many hours.
