Silkworm (Tecmo, 1988)⠀ ⠀ Silkworm is a classic side scrolling shooter, developed by Tecmo and first released for arcade in 1988. In 1989 it was ported to the #Amiga, #AtariST, #Commodore64, #ZXSpectrum, #AmstradCPC and #NES (1990) systems by The Sales Curve and released by Virgin #Mastertronic.⠀ ⠀ Silkworm also spawned what many consider to be a spiritual successor to the game - SWIV. While SWIV was not a direct sequel, it followed the same core gameplay design of a helicopter/jeep team, albeit as a vertically scrolling shooter instead of a horizontally scrolling one. SWIV was described in the game's manual to mean both "Special Weapons Intercept Vehicles" and "Silkworm IV".⠀ ⠀ #fb #blog #tweet
