Silkworm vs Swiv - Which is the best shooter?
« on: January 19, 2017, 22:46:13 PM »
Hi everyone and welcome to the January 2017 edition of the Which Is Best?
Last month I placed Final Fight (arcade) and Streets Of Rage 2 (megadrive) against each other and after a mega battle with the votes I can announce SOR2 nailed the victory with 48 votes with Final Fight claiming just 26.
To kick off the new year and new series of the "Which Is Best?", I'm gonna be a cruel bugger and test your loyalties, I'm placing two of my favourite Amiga shooters side by side, Silkworm and It's unnoficial sequel Swiv,...which do you think is the better shooter?!, only your votes will determine that,...happy voting! :-D

I voted for Silkworm, because of its arcade origins and on how good they converted this game. Nearly arcade perfect, even the Atari ST version which I suspect the Amiga was ported from and then added the extras to that version, the game was exceptional fun, SWIV was superb too, but I think Silkworm has piped this here.
