Click to Play

Console: Gameboy

Originally an arcade parody of the company’s Gradius series, Parodius showcases Konami’s lighter side by taking the former’s shooting gameplay and mixing in characters from across Konami’s catalogue with remixes of public domain (mostly classical) music. Although this was supposedly down to an impossible-to-meet developmental deadline, it contributed greatly to the joyful absurdity of the game and the Game Boy version captures that spirit very well.
