Aura4 got in touch to let me know about the release of his new Shining Force fan game, Mega Force 2!

Mega Force 2 is the sequel to Mega Force, which was released back in 2016. Just like its predecessor, Mega Force 2 features a complete cast of playable characters and a tonne of battles.

Mega Force 2 - title screen

You start with a single character, but as the game progresses you’ll pick up some useful allies.

Mega Force 2 - Banana's attack!

Not all of these characters are popular with the dungeon’s inhabitants though…

Mega Force 2 - GARGO is not popular

If you’re a fan of Shining-style battles this is definitely worth a play. Be sure to use your spells in the early battles as they can be very tough, and don’t be afraid to use egress if needed. Some of the later fights require a little bit of planning to make sure enemies are lured into range, which adds an extra layer of challenge to the experience.

Good news everyone – Aura4 has released the complete version of his Shining Force fan game, “Mega Force“!

You might remember Aura4 as the developer behind the Shining Force 2 Remake (along with its source code).

Mega Force is written using the XNA framework, which means you’ll need Windows as well as the XNA runtime installed before you can play.

The final release contains the following:

  • 10 battles
  • 6 playable characters
  • 6 different types of enemies
  • A complete story

Go try it out!

Like the SF2 remake, Mega Force is written using the XNA framework, so you’ll need to have that installed before you can play.

The demo contains 6 battles to play through, and the engine is already looking pretty solid. A word of warning – the AI is merciless, so be careful when sending your leader into battle. Healing magic works, but only if you can get there in time ;)
