Game Play

Players pick from sixteen different fighter jets, each of which has its own shooting pattern and special 'bomb' attack. Different shooting patterns include rapid-fire, spread, and more. Each plane is from a different "country," i.e. the USA, Japan, England, etc. The selection of jets is not unlike that of Aero Fighters, a very similar game.

The game plays more or less like any other vertically-scrolling shoot-em-up; simply shoot everything in your way, and try not to die. However, this is a particularily good example of the genre, probably due to the fact that it is by Namco.
