The Atomiswave, an arcade system based on the NAOMI hardware found in the Sega Dreamcast, had a string of stellar hits on it that were both exclusive, and non-exclusive. Today, we take a look at one of the titles that has never been ported outside of the Atomiswave and emulation: Dolphin Blue. Developed in 2003, this love letter to Metal Slug combines 16 bit 2D Run ‘n Gun action with breathtaking 3D visual backdrops. Take a dip in the sea with Royal Army heroes Erio and Anne to take on the Evil Empire. But what about the music? This soundtrack takes inspiration from not only Metal Slug’s tunes, but also flourishes on its own with tracks that pop and sizzle. So hop on a dolphin with Mike and Justin as they take you on a wild ride through Dolphin Blue’s incredible soundtrack!
