Shooters have had a resurgence in recent years and while more and new are always welcome, there are still many incredible games lying almost forgotten in the past. DeltaZeal was not only excellent for the time, it’s weathered the years exceptionally well and can easily stand with the best of today. Yes, there’s no denying that it looks like a PS1 refugee, balanced slightly awkwardly between low- and hi-res pixel art, but it works well enough and the shooting action is excellent. The ability to tweak the weapon balance on the fly as power-ups become available makes for some welcome customization, and being rewarded with a brand-new challenge in an area that had seemed familiar when you’ve done particularly well is always a happy surprise. Usually followed by a death or two, of course, because the reward for skill is to have it tested, but it’s hard to complain too much at being gifted with new scoring opportunities. DeltaZeal deserved better than to be lost in shooter history, and is an easy recommendation for anyone who’s ever enjoyed flying up the screen maxed out on firepower but only a single bullet away from death.
