Wolf Fang was originally released in arcades in Japan in the early 1990s, and made its way to PlayStation a few years later. The story is set in the future: an evil military faction looks to control all the mechs in the world, and the last places on Earth they haven’t conquered are Australia and New Zealand (It’s always nice to know which areas on future Earth will be the last bastions of freedom, isn’t it?). To stop the bad guys from total domination, you pilot your own customized mech to save Oceania.
The customization process allows you to swap out a special weapon, main weapon and legs to fit your personal play style. If you lose all your lives, you can try a different set of parts or keep rocking the same mech. The choice is always yours, which is good because Wolf Fang’s difficulty has a… wait for it… bite to it (sorry, I’ve been saving that pun for a long time). Overall, there are 12 pieces to choose from so you can play around with the parts to find the sweet spot between speed and power.
If that level of customization isn’t enough, Wolf Fang’s features branching missions and multiple endings, so you’ll want to gear up for multiple playthroughs to make sure you don’t miss any of the action.
That does it for the Week 5 game of the Retro Rush from MonkeyPaw Games. That means we are now down to the last title, and it’s sure turn a lot of hair pink. Yes, Tomba! 2 is the final entry into the Retro Rush! See you next week!
