Each week for Arcade Gems we highlight some lesser-known, must-play titles. These games are favorites of those in-the-know, and, once you give them a try, we think you’ll agree that they’re worthy classics.
This week’s Arcade Gem is Exerion (1983) by Jaleco Ltd. This all-time classic is a shoot-em-up with parallax background effects. Use dual beam or single beam weapons to take on enemies, all while grappling with the forces of inertia in a simulated 3-D space.
