Classic Game Room named Sturmwind the 2013 Game of the Year. Classic Game Room praised the game’s music, level design, and presentation – and in case you missed the original release, you can now add it to your collection!
Sturmwind is a shmup in the tradition of old arcade games. If it moves – shoot it. The game tries to take advantage of every bit of the Dreamcast hardware and supports a wide range of effects. It also uses the SD Card for various features – if you have one.
You can play the normal mode with all 16 levels or the arcade mode with only 6 levels and no continues. In normal mode your progress will be saved with every finished level.
The game is designed for all Dreamcast fans, it is no hardcore maniac or score shooter. Even average players are able to see more than the first level. There is a good bit of memorization involved as with most of this type of games but that is part of the fun.
The game comes in a sealed jewel case and has a full-color 20-pages booklet included.
