I used to have this for the Spectrum. It was crap. I also have it for the Megadrive. It is crap on that as well.
Luckily, the arcade version isn’t, mainly due to twin-stickness making it much easier to aim your shots. It’s a bit of a cross between Parodius, Ai Cho Aniki, and Robotron, with some added Fantasy Zone shops. It was pretty good too, with bizarre bosses and the best Japlish cutscenes and ending ever. Probably.
Completed then. And that’s today’s hat-trick!
