In review, Fast Striker is a difficult, but scrappy homage to the shoot 'em ups of old. Its Neo Geo graphics, while nostalgic, don't particularly stand out, and use an ugly palette of colours. The lack of additional gameplay features, especially powerups is its most egregious sin, but the experience is still an enjoyable one, if only for ten minutes at a time. On a PS Vita and for short bursts, this could provide entertainment for a bus journey or two. On PS4, however, it doesn't cut the mustard, and fails to stand out from the many, many indie shoot 'em ups available on the Store.

Fast Striker pays homage to the original game, but it offers very little in regards to modernization. Fast Striker has some simple, intriguing elements to it, but it lacks the polish of other games in the genre.

A fast, furious and fun shoot ‘em up that brings some interesting gameplay changes into its different modes. Doesn't do anything groundbreaking but plays like a dream and looks and sounds exactly as you remember shmups do!

Fast Strikers is a title that is fun to play once or twice but doesn't have longevity or content to enjoy much longer than that.

As someone who hase fallen so deeply in love with the genre, whose itch for a new brilliant shmup has been left unscratched for years, I can't help but feel disappointed – especially because of how promising NG:DEV.TEAM seem to be.

Fast Striker is solid all round. It has four modes of ever-increasing challenge and complexity. Novices are able to get a feel for the game, while Maniacs can push their skills to the limit. The shields are an interesting idea. Under the right circumstances, they are a satisfying means of escape, yet they can also be a crutch. If they are always being exhausted, it's proof that the player needs more practice. Overcoming the impossible is what STGs are all about, and this title clearly understands that mantra.

If you are a fan of retro vertical shooters then Fast Striker from eastasiasoft is definitely a good option, especially since it's a cross-buy release, so you'll be getting both the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation Vita versions with one purchase. There's also a physical copy available in very limited quantities from Play Asia, which you can pre-order by clicking right here.

If you're a shoot 'em up aficionado who must play every single one in existence then Fast Striker will provide a worthwhile albeit unmemorable arcade-style experience.
