This is the nineteenth entry in the Scratching That Itch series, wherein I randomly select and write about one of the 1704 1741 games and game-related things included in the Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality. The Bundle raised $8,175,279.81 split evenly between the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund and Community Bail Fund, but don’t worry if you missed it. There are plenty of ways you can help support the vital cause of racial justice; try here for a start. Lastly, as always, you may click on images to view larger versions.

The magic of random number generation has provided another selection from the Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality. It’s Zenodyne R, by Team Grybanser Fox (although it’s listed under the name of Team Grybanser Fox’s founder, Jack Darx). Its tagline in the bundle reads:

90s 16-bit YM2612 Shooter Strikes Back!

Ah yes, of course, YM2612. I’m sure everyone is familiar with this famous 90s… thing, providing some of the finest Y and M of that venerable decade. And we all know that it was, uh, much better than YM2611, which leaned too hard on the Y, and didn’t provide nearly enough M. Yes. Those are all definitely true facts that I didn’t just make up.
