Game Introduction

You are the personal bodyguard of the Princess. The game starts with her walking down the street and you have to shoot attackers as they come at her. Shortly after starting, a car full of thugs pulls up and grabs her, pulling her into the car. You have to shoot the car and keep them from getting away. If you succeed, she continues walking along the sidewalk. Later on this stage, she is captured and you must defeat the boss by shooting him in order to rescue her.

In the following stage, the Princess is tied up by the gang of hoodlums and you must shoot all of them including the boss in order to rescue her again.

Afterwards, a stage where you must protect the Princess while she is in her motorboat follows.

Then in another stage, you must shoot any attacking hoodlum as you make your way up a big building, when you reach the top, you must confront the boss once again and you must defeat him again to rescue the Princess again. Afterwards, the game begins again.
