- TRIVIA -

Released in December 1992.

This game is known outside Japan as "Grind Stormer".

This would be Ikeda Tsunemoto's first game at Toaplan. He went on to become a founding member of Cave, where he still works as a lead programmer. It is due to him that the phenomenon of the 'Danmaku'; the huge walls of bullets seen in "Donpachi" etc., came about.

- TIPS AND TRICKS -

* Hidden Functions : If the 'Invulnerability dip switch' is enabled, you are invulnerable but you may also 'Pause' the game with P2 Start and restart with P1 Start.

* Bomber Mode : Input code Right, Left, Button2, Left, Down, Button1, Up, Left on title screen after inserted a credit. Displayed 'BOMBER. Ver' and the game system is changed to "Grind Stormer"'s one.
