This week’s new addition to the ACA NeoGeo library has landed on the Play Store, and it’s not just another edition of a fighting game. It’s called Magician Lord and it’s a side-scrolling action game.
Let’s face it, the 90s were basically the heyday of the side-scrolling action game. Magician Lord may not be a particularly well-remembered one, but you can bet it’s going to be an ace.
It was released in 1990 and was a launch title for the original NeoGeo. It’s all about making your way through a fantasy world, using your magical powers to restore it to its former glory.
It sure looks good, and if there’s not something in you that draws you to those graphics, you’re probably a lot younger than us. Which is fine. Whatever. We are not bitter.
The game has all the usual ACA NeoGeo tweaks to keep it up to date, from quick saves to customizable on-screen controls. And probably some other stuff too.
If you want to give Magician Lord a chance, you can click here to download it from play store† It’s a premium game and will set you back $3.99. That seems like a great deal to me.
