Daioh (c) 1993 Sammy.

An excellent vertically scrolling space shoot'em up. Excellent graphics, multi-layer scrolling, big sprites (especially bosses), and an extreme difficulty that continued to increase from easy to insane the farther along you went without getting killed.

- TRIVIA -

Developed by Athena, Daioh was released in July 1993.

The title of this game translates from Japanese as 'Great King'.

In 1997, Daioh's staff established a new company, called 'Warashi', their first game was "Shienryu". The game is remarkably similar, and feature an identical power-up system, and the first level is a remake of the first stage of Daioh.

A pseudo-sequel to the game entitled "Daioh Gale" appears as the sample level in Athena's 1994 title, Dezaemon - Kaite Tsukutte Asoberu.
A follow up to 'Daioh Gale', 'Daioh Gale ver.2' appears as the sample level in Athena's 1996 title, Dezaemon Plus.
A parody of the game entitled 'Daioh-P' appears as a sample level in Athena's 1997 Sega Saturn release, Dezaemon 2.

Mark Carmichael holds the official record for this game with 144,900 points on July 15, 2006.
