Game Details

A vertical top-down upwards scrolling spaceship shoot'em-up game with a gradius-like pick-up system (you pick up tokens that yield various upgrades to your ship that you may choose, speed costs one token, shot costs 2, side-shot cost 3 etc.) The game is very intense even if the enemies are rather simple in design. Toaplan made a game in 1993 called V-5 which plays much like Slap Fight (Alcon).

Published for the Commodore 64 (USA) by Taito.
