Steel Empire Gets Permanent Price Drop

Steel Empire, the side-scrolling flying shooting game from the days of the Genesis, but revamped for the 3DS, is now permanently reduced in price to $9.99 (66% off). I haven’t tried the game yet, but it does look appealing. Now that it’s cheaper I might give it a go!



Steel Empire is a steam punk shoot’em up game featuring a frantic combat filled with powerful enemies and insane obstacles. Enjoy a beautiful world and retro game-play as you dodge and shoot your way through classical stages. Choose one of 4 difficulty settings according to your set of skills and fight the evil empire! See how well you did using the Replay Mode and show your worth by getting all achievements.

Steel Empire, originally released on Sega Genesis and Game Boy™ Advance, is finally available on Nintendo 3DS™!
