・Lineup:

Scramble
The side-scrolling shooting game which started it all. It could be considered to be the original game which inspired the creators of the Gradius series.

TwinBee
The first game of the TwinBee series loved for its cute graphics.

Nemesis (also known as Gradius)
The smash-hit first installment in the Gradius series, known for its unique power-ups and enemies.

Salamander (also known as Life Force)
The second entry in the Gradius series which took the series to the next level with its upgraded gameplay and improved graphics.

Typhoon (also known as A-Jax)
The timeless shooting game that introduced ground-breaking sprite zooming and rotation effects that added depth to the graphics.

Haunted Castle
The arcade version of Castlevania which bewitched the fans with its haunting graphics.

Vulcan Venture (also known as Gradius II)
Considered by many to be the pinnacle of the Gradius series, memorable for its beloved music and top-notch level design.

Thunder Cross
The game that introduced many players to the shoot'em up genre, thanks to a more inclusive difficulty and unique design

Bunch of shooters and Haunted Castle. Don't know why that one wasn't on the Castlevania collection.

Great shooters though and arcade versions...

I believe the Contra and Castlevania collections are on sale for the same price. Do you want to add those to this post as well?

Yea I hear ya, that has happened to me one too many times... I try to only purchase collections when they go on a super discount. I think I purchased these both at $4.99 and even the megaman collections when they were at an all time low. Man nostalgia is really adds up and is eventually expensive!!

For some reason I never thought these would get discount much. Never dream it'll ever be 75% off.
