Psikyo Shooting Stars Alpha is a fun collection of notable artifacts from the golden age of arcade shmups.

Barring Sol Divide, this is a great collection of shooters from one of the best in the business. If you're a fan of the shmup that hasn't made the leap into these titles on Switch, now's the perfect time to do so, even if it does only just manage to justify its price versus picking up the games separately.

Psikyo Shooting Stars Alpha compiles six good to dispensables shoot'em up on a single Switch cartridge, giving curious players enough content to chains scores and playthrough. But despite some interesting scrolling options, the game lacks the most obvious features it needed to really please every fan of the genre.

Psikyo Shooting Stars Alpha on the Nintendo Switch brings a compilation of six old-school shoot'em-ups, the kind that made many fans in the 1990s. The games featured in the collection are overall quite good and entertaining and the way this compilation was adapted to the Nintendo Switch works wonders for the experience of retro shoot'em-ups. While more extras and additional content wouldn't harm, Psikyo Shooting Stars Alpha will make shoot'em-ups fans very satisfied with this collection.
