Survival challenge 5 | Shock Troopers (NSW, PS4, XB1, NeoGeo)

Rules | ORIGINAL MODE or Hi SCORE MODE | Continues: OFF | 3 Lives | Level 4 Difficulty

We will take down the Bloody Scorpions and their Commander in this 1997 gem from Saurus. Go LONLY WOLF (god bless Engrish) with one character and three lives or TEAM MODE and pick three characters to swap with during your adventure. Pick your preferred route for your journey; MOUNTAIN, VALLEY or JUNGLE. Halfway through you get the option to swap between routes, although you get an extra bonus level if you do so. Points are awarded according to the stages you beat. Take a screenshot after you died that still shows the level.

Survival challenge 6 | Devil Engine (NSW, PC)

Rules | ARCADE mode | VERY HARD or VERY EASY | RANK OK

Only released last month, but already very popular in our poll. We will try to make it to the final stage of the game, on either VERY EASY (available after an attempt at VERY HARD) or VERY HARD with the latter offering more points for completion. The game offers many unlockables for your total combined score including added continues. You are free to use them all, you will need them... Make sure to take a screenshot of the 'Game Over' screen that still show the level in the background.

Also a special mention for the soundtrack that features several tracks written by Hyakutarou Tsukumo, know for his work on Thunder Force V.
