Brief Description

Hellfire game action!A space-sideways-shoot'em-up, which allows 2-player simultaneous play but doesn't quite match the quality of many other Toaplan games.

One thing that makes this game different is that the player has all weapons from start and by picking up power-ups the weapons get more powerful. You have 4 different weapons, forward shot, backward shot, vertical shots (2-way), diagonal shots (4-way) and button 2 changes between weapons.

Usually it works best to go with the diagonal shot, it seems to cover most of the screen area.

Music and sound created by Tatsuya Uemura

The game was converted to SEGA Genesis.
