Vote for game of the month, May 2014

This month Trantor has selected six games for us to choose from. The topic of the month is action games that have a female protagonist. Trantor has come up with an excellent selection of games if you ask me, so I'll be excited to see what you guys end up voting for.

The games are:
1) Athena (NES)
Port of the SNK arcade game of the same name. A side scrolling action game with a very loose greek mythology background. Athena has been ported for a number of platforms, personally I loved the Commodore 64 version.

2) Psychic World (Game Gear and Master System)
Side scrolling action game set in a sci-fi world with psychic powers that are upgraded as the game progresses.

3) Trouble Shooter (Sega Mega Drive / Genesis)
Sci-fi action side scroller with a twist on the old "valiant warrior saves the princess" theme. Here you are the female warrior saving the prince.

4) Alisia Dragoon (Genesis)
Fantasy side scroller with the primary weapon being "thunder magic".

5) Pocky & Rocky (SNES)
This one is a vertical scrolling shoot 'em up (on foot like in Commando or Gunsmoke) featuring a young girl and her racoon sidekick... looks to be heavy on japanese mythological themes.

6) The Misadventures of Tron Bonne (PlayStation)
This game is a spin off from the Megaman series and features Tron Bonne (best known for her appearances in the Marvel vs. Capcom games). It's an over the shoulder 3D action game.

If you want to vote on which game we should play - or even better, if you want to play along with us - go to, create an account, and cast your vote in the "RGS: Retro Gaming Club"-forum. You can also vote by leaving a comment to this post.
