We decided to change things up a bit this week and invite on of our Patreon members to join us on the show! Alex brought with him some excellent music from all sorts of games, and the Rhythm and Pixels team selected tracks that would accompany each one. We talk Rayman, Ristar, and Rob reminisces on old days working in a arcade.

Get those reflexes ready, welcome to Bullet-Hell’s Kitchen! This week we dig into the soaring, energetic, and often manic tunes of arcade shoot’em-ups! We look at the old and new, horizontal and vertical, and the cute and insane! We also create a shooter based on Pernell, and Rob becomes an old man battling against impossible odds.
