Frisbee-tossing arcade classic follow-up Windjammers 2 gets first gameplay trailer
We’ve known about Windjammers 2, the long-awaited follow-up to Data East’s frisbee-tossing arcade classic, for some time now – but, finally, we’ve a chance to see developer DotEmu’s sequel in action, thanks to a newly unveiled alpha gameplay trailer.
Windjammers originally released on Neo Geo in 1994, gifting the world with its raucously entertaining multiplayer take on brutal competitive frisbee action. Playing out something like Pong meets Street Fighter (as Martin Robinson put it in his Essential review), the goal, simply enough, is to pelt a frisbee into your opponent’s net until you’ve enough points to win.
A handful of special moves add a touch of nuance – not that nuance is necessarily a primary consideration in a game where you’re dressed in plastic day-glo armour and there’s something called a Flying Power Disc whizzing toward your head – but it’s exactly accessible enough to ensure pretty much anyone can pick it up and have a devastatingly good time in two-player.
