No-frills sidescrolling shooter, but fun nonetheless. Choose from three different pilots, six different planes, and eleven different weapons (the latter two dependent on how much money you have, which is earned by completing levels), and fly through 10 levels, shooting anything that moves. Known in America as U.N. Squadron.

Great shmup, or Greatest Shmup.
Based on the anime, you can buy your own planes and arsenal with money you make from taking down enemies, choose your own missions (within a limit). According to, superior to Ikaruga as a shmup.
