Shack's Arcade Corner: Parodius DA!

This week on the glorious return of Arcade Corner, we take a look back at Parodius DA! This Konami horizontal-scrolling shooter came out in 1990 and was a parody of Gradius and a number of other titles. You could switch up powerups in game with the push of a button which differentiated itself from a lot of games where you are at the mercy of a weapon pickup. The game had insanely silly music and boss battles and was really fun for arcade goers who didn't take themselves too seriously.
