Super Real Darwin
June 10, 2021
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 Super Real Darwin (1987).
The sequel to Darwin 4078, Super Real Darwin is a fast-paced vertical scrolling shooter arcade game by Data East. The player takes control of a living fighter ship that can transform, evolve, and upgrade itself to take on various enemies and scenarios. As powerups are gained, the ship’s appearance and abilities change.
