You are a lone fighter pilot in the middle of one of the biggest space battles of all time. Remember the rules of the space shooter - maneuver often, fly furiously, get power-ups at every possible opportunity, and shoot anything that isn't you!

This is one truly impressive R-Type clone, and reminds me a helluva lot of the Macross shooter for the SNES. Fantastically detailed multi-plane scrolling backgrounds, a driving musical score, a well-designed weapons and shielding system, and just plain solid gameplay put this squarely in the top five all-time great Genesis shooters. Its only real drawback is the total lack of a plot, but shooter fans really don't care about such stuff, do they?
