Parodius Revives Classical Shooter and Music

vicviper.jpgAnyone remember Gradius for the NES? Or the two-player Lifeforce? This game features the Vic Viper, the space ship that fough aliens in space. After years of dormancy, a trilogy called Parodius decided to pay tribute to both Gradius and classical music. Parodius literally stands for a parody of Gradius and the musical score here is not only famously recognizable, but also incredibly fun to listen to.

I recently uploaded the music for Pardious v2 which I thought has some of the best music in the entire series.
