Over the last few months we've been treated to several of SNK's best arcade shoot-em-ups. For months I've gushed over Vanguard and only a few weeks ago I was surprised again by Prehistoric Isle in 1930. These may not be the best known shooters from the 1980s, but they are definitely some of the most fun. You can add Bermuda Triangle to the list of great shooters. Even though it was released a quarter century ago, this SNK stunner is one of the most inventive shooters I've seen in a long time.

Forget playing some teeny tiny space ship. In Bermuda Triangle you play a GIGANTIC fighting ship. The craft easily takes up 15% of the screen, a massive increase compared to every other 2D shooter of that era. Your ship changes in some very exciting ways as you pick up the energy capsules lying around the levels, literally transforming before your eyes. You're not just upgrading your weaponry, but also what your ship looks like and how large it is. It's good that you're built so large, because the bad guys are just as big and just as mean.

Beyond the unorthodox ship upgrades, Bermuda Triangle has a couple of other things going for it. In each stage you will find yourself flying both forward and backward, allowing you to pick up the energy containers and other fun stuff. Your ship is also able to shoot in multiple directions, similar to classic SNK games like Ikari Warriors and Guerrilla War. The end result is an exciting vertical shooter that manages to have its own unique look and feel. And just like Prehistoric Isle in 1930, this is the kind of game SNK should be making more of.
