Arcade Game Theory of Evolution : Shooting Edition Mook

I recently picked up this great : Arcade Game Theory of Evolution : Shooting Edition Mook ( アーケードゲーム進化論 シューティング編 ) from Amazon (but I’ve seen it in general magazine shops too, so it’s not hard to find).

It covers over 200 shmup (they’re called “Shooting” games in Japanese) titles with many of them having a whole page, with full colour photos and text description.
The bigger series franchises cover a couple of pages.

As with the other titles in the Arcade Game Theory of Evolution series, this is an excellent read, even if you don’t read Japanese and just admire the pictures.
