At first you may want to compare it to Space Harrier because of the flying man shooting the oncomers but it won’t take you long to realise this is just another modern Scramble clone like R-Type. In fact R-Type is the perfect game to compare to since enemy waves and bosses feel fairly similar. Just a change of sprites and background imagery.
I don’t like the way the the player sprite controls. It can be a little difficult getting him facing the direction you want and firing correctly. And at time the action feels too busy with too much going on screen. But then it’s a coin-op and it’s primary concern is getting you to the continue screen so you wack more coins in.
All that said it does look stunning. Colourful, large detailed sprites and excellent scrolling backdrops. But bright graphics doesn’t make up for okay gameplay.
