DESCRIPTION

It's would not be an exaggeration to say that the golden age of MSX shooting games started with this one. It incorporates a difficulty level functionality (Auto Level Controller) and hi-speed smooth scrolling, which were both very rare at the time. The attack algorythm of the enemies is different each time and some enemies won't appear unless the difficulty level has risen. Each time you play, a different game course can be enjoyed; it depends on the player's skills. In other words: it depends on how you play how you clear all eight stages. As the difficulty level is displayed at the upper right part of the screen, you can also have fun competing with friends!
