Dangerous Seed is the newest addition to Arcade Archives

You can play this retro shooter now on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4!

Hamster Co. added Namco‘s arcade title Dangerous Seed yesterday to its ongoing Arcade Archives series.

Originally released for arcades in 1989, Dangerous Seed is a vertically-scrolling shooter. Across its multiple visually surreal levels, players pilot the “Moon Diver” fighter. The fighter consists of three ships that you can combine and transform into a powerful configuration. Across its unique levels, you’ll also need to shoot your way through a myriad of bizarre alien enemies.

While the game primarily focuses on single-player gameplay, it also features an alternating turn two-player mode. Although this title may not be as well known as other Namco classics, its unique visuals and cool music makes it a title worth playing.
