Lost Worlds (c) 1988 Capcom.

Two jet-pack wearing marines must battle a powerful enemy force that has seized and inhabited their home planet - now known as 'Dust World' - and restore the planet to its former name of 'Earth'.

Lost Worlds' gameplay features multi-directional shooting, with the Marines being able to rotate through 360 degrees, allowing players to fire in any direction. When killed, enemies drop 'Zenny Coins' which can be used to upgrade weapons and player health at the shops that appear at the halfway point of each level. Forgotten Worlds features superb graphics and ingenious enemy design, and was converted to many different home formats.


Runs on the "CP System" hardware
B-Board #: 88618B-2
CPS-B #: CPS-B-01 DL-0411-10001

Players: Up to 2
Control: 8-way joystick, Spinner

Lost Worlds was released in July 1988 in the Japanese arcade. It was the first video game released for this system (Known as 'CP-S No. 01').

The game is known outside Japan as "Forgotten Worlds". Here are some known export releases:
"Forgotten Worlds [B-Board 88618B-2]"
"Forgotten Worlds [B-Board 88621B-2]"

Lost Worlds is the third and final game in Capcom's 'Jet-Pack Hero' trilogy (with the first two games being 1985's "Section Z" and 1986's "Side Arms") and, as with the first two games, is a one or two player sideways scrolling shoot-em-up.

While Lost Worlds isn't a sequel to "Black Dragon", it does share similarities with it: In both games the player fights dragons, and also collects 'ZENNY' coins, money to buy weapons and armour in shops. Also, both games feature intros depicting dragons attacking cities.

The first player character, Unknown Soldier, appears as an assist character in "Marvel vs. Capcom - Clash of Super Heroes". The second player character appears in "Final Fight" as an enemy member of the Mad Gear gang; he was then called 'Two P' (for 2P, player 2).

The shop music used in this game was later remade and used as the shop music for "SNK vs. Capcom - Card Fighters Clash".

Pony Canyon / Scitron released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Daimakaimura : G.S.M. Capcom 1 - D28B-0011) on January 11, 1989.
