shoot ‘em up

Wolfgang [Playstation – Cancelled?]

Wolfang is an action game / side scrolling shoot ‘em up that was in development by Seibu Kaihatsu (?) for the original Playstation and it would have been published by Bird (?). There are not many info about this, maybe the game was released under a different name and a by different publisher? (even if it’s not listed in Sibu Kaihatsu’s games list) If you recognize this game or have some more info, please let us know!

Contrary to other 3D productions Argonaut got famous for on SNES and GB (think Star Fox on SNES or Hard Drivin on Game Boy)  this game was an isometric 2D shooter with a futuristic setting.

Viper: Red Sector [PSX – Cancelled]

Viper: Red Sector is a cancelled sci-fi shooter that was in development by New World Computing for the original Playstation. The game was based around aerial combats with a squadron of robot fighter planes and the player had to eliminate a race of irate synthetic humanoids through more than 40 levels. The missions were set in open areas, so that you would have been able to freely explore the world to reach the different objectives.  We dont know how much it was completed before 3DO purchased New World and decided to cancel the project.

In 1998 Ocean released another flying shooter for the PSX named Viper, but it should not  be related to Red Sector as it was developed by X-ample.

An image probably taken from a Viper: Red Sector’s FMV was found in EGM #84
