  • Shock Troopers (ショックトルーパーズ) is a 1997 run and gun arcade game developed by Saurus and published by SNK. Gameplay involves taking command of one or three commandos in an 8-way shooter through 6 stages of opposing forces, weaponry, and power-ups. The game received a semi-sequel in Shock Troopers: 2nd Squad. There is also believed to be a third game which became vaporware. This game was re-released by SNK in North America through SNK Arcade Classics Vol. 1. However there are minor differences of the game which could be spotted. The game consists of somewhat fairly long load times similar to the loading behavior in Metal Slug Anthology (even longer load on the PSP) and oddly enough, some Japanese dialog has been stripped out of these versions. It is uncertain why this was done. The game was also released for the Virtual Console and the Playstation Network.
  • Shock Troopers is a Vertical Scrolling run 'n' gun Shoot'Em Up game developed by Saurus and published by SNK for the Neo Geo arcade platform in 1997. A sequel, Shock Troopers: 2nd Squad, came out a year later. A third title was planned but never materialized. The gameplay is similar to games like Commando and Ikari Warriors. In the first game, a Multinational Team of eight commandos, each with different stats and special weapons, must fight against the evil forces of The Bloody Scorpion Group. Their leader, the fearsome... Leader, has kidnapped Cecilia, the daughter of a famous scientist, George, in order to force him to work for them. The player can choose only one of the commandos (and start with more health) or a team of three (and have more combat options) to switch between on the fly. The game has three level routes and you are given the chance to switch from one to another mid-way through the game. In 2nd Squad, a less-ethnically-diverse (but more diverse in weapons and abilities then the first team) team of four commandos must fight against the evil forces of Dio International Corporation And the shadowy General behind them, who are attempting to Take Over the World. It loses the Tag Team feature but gains more special weapon Power Ups and adds Metal Slug -style controllable vehicles. Relatively obscure as far as Neo Geo action games go though the first game has been making new fans since becoming available to download on the Wii and, more recently, the Play Station Store for PlayStation 3 and PSP. Both games feature two-player co-op.
