Average to slightly above average game. As a shump addict I had to have it. Craziest cover art ever.

Ha ! I finally know what this damn game is about. I never knew how or when I would come across to seeing this game or even playing it but... yea... it does seem to look like an average shooter.

I remember playing this as a kid. My brothers and I rented it from the infamous Phar-Mor for a buck. It wasn't too bad, but it wasn't anything special. I loved Gradius III a heck of a lot more than this one, but I don't remember this game having the same lag time.

An average shump that would have been forgotten about long ago if not for the unusual cover art on the box.

Yes, everyone knows about the box art, but is this horizontal-scrolling shooter any good? Somewhat. Certainly not for the faint of heart in terms of difficulty as it will punish you.

 Panzer Dragoon - Sega Saturn
""Get out of the way you stupid Dragon! I Can't see!!" Is what I constantly say when playing Panzer Dragoon. That's the biggest issue with this game, half your vision is blocked by your character. If only they made it first person perpective or simple make the character you're controlling a little smaller. I never had these issues with StarFox, Space Harrier, or Panorama Cotton which by the way are twice as good as this game! The visuals are good for it's time and the music is great. Unlimted continues would have been nice since it gets crazy hard when you're half blinded." - Truxton4life

 Loaded - PlayStation
"Can someone give me a comparison between the ps1 and saturn version, i have the saturn version and i quite like it" - saturn185

 Acorn Electron - Electron/BBC
"This little thing actually ran Elite, It also has a vast library of games even more so than the BBC.To be fair most of the games don't stand the test of time but as a child this machine holds a lot of fond memories. Brought for home work used for games take that mum!" - harris77

 Paperboy - Electron/BBC
"The acorn port of paperboy, POO nuff said!" - harris77

 Crash Bandicoot - PlayStation
"One of the best games available for the original PlayStation. The level designs were colorful and quirky and the characters were lovable and silly. The platforming was supremely satisfying and there was a nice variety in the levels. Naughty Dog hit a home run with Crash Bandicoot." - Parker
