Game Details

Sega's first attempt at a shoot-em-up. Slow, frustrating, and generally less than impressive gameplay. Crude, blocky colour graphics do not help. Memorable for the constantly dropping fuel gauge, and falling lightbulbs.

--- 720 --- (Contributor: unknown) In the ramp section, levels 8, 9, and 10: holding down the kick and jump buttons simultanously on the lip of the ramp will boost your air. This trick only works when you're going the correct speed (usually your third or fourth jump), and only once (as far as I can tell) per ramp session per level. ----------- Afterburner ----------- (Contributor: Anthony D.
