Windjammers 2 is a fitting sequel to the Neo-Geo classic’s disc-flying fun. While there aren’t many modes, the fundamental action is diverse enough to be the next great competitive smash.

With the release of Dotemu’s Windjammers 2, the disc flying action of Windjammers returns for a new generation after making waves during the Clinton years. Is the ’90s dream still alive, or is this title a little out of date?

Review of Windjammers 2

The Windjammers series is a one-on-one versus game with an intriguing hook, with origins stretching back to the enormous red Neo-Geo machines common in 7-11s and pizza parlors. To score points, players must get a frisbee through the opponents’ front lines. A set is won by the first player to reach 15 points, and the match is won by the best of two of three sets.

Doesn’t it remind you of Pong or Tennis? There’s a lot more to it than that, however. The gameplay is much like a fighting game, with each character having a different speed and strength, as well as a Power Toss related to a Power Gauge. Not to mention the variety of shots available to players — lob shots, curve shots, reversals, and custom shots keep players on their toes at all times.

This formula is carried over into Windjammers 2. The ensemble has grown from six to ten characters, with the newcomers seamlessly blending in with the rest of the group. The variety of courses has also grown significantly, with casino and junkyard courses joining the beach and grass courses. Each one also has a unique gimmick that changes the way points are distributed, which is a huge plus in a competitive game like this.

Of course, none of this would matter if the basic gameplay was lacking. Windjammers 2 was designed with this in mind by the Dotemu team, and the basic gameplay is still there in this installment. Purists of the Data East classic won’t be disappointed: this 2022 sequel keeps the general mood of the original while broadening the concept. Even little details like switching to a widescreen resolution rather than a 4:3 make this entry shine.

It’s really a pity that this bundle contains so little. The title’s bread and butter is an Arcade Mode, in which players face off against a variety of opponents and play both classic and new minigames. Players are granted a certain number of credits, but they may earn more by accumulating a certain number of points. It manages to get the formula down pat while also being pretty fast to finish.

There’s also a vs mode for couch play, as well as an online option for those who want to battle it out with the rest of the globe. Although we were unable to test this mode throughout the review time, we like how it features crossplay, online input delay, and the opportunity to see one’s ping.

Windjammers 2 is a fitting sequel to the Neo-Geo classic’s disc-flying fun. While there aren’t many modes, the fundamental action is diverse enough to be the next great competitive smash.

The PC version of Windjammers 2 was used for this review. The publisher gave me a digital code to use.
