The Japanese name of this game romanizes as "Bakuretsu Muteki Bangaioh," or "Explosion Invincible Bangai-O," which appears in the dialogue in the intro.
 
This is one of the bestest games ever. I'm not sure if the Japanese version is as good: does the Japanese dialog have the same nutty, half-baked character as the English translation? If not, they're missing out on some hilarious wackiness.
 
I actually hadn't played this game for quite some time until just a few days ago, and that was because I was scared of the control. See, in Bangai-O, you control your little jetpack-equipped shooting robot by maneuvering him around the screen with the D-pad and shooting in eight directions by pressing the face buttons, singly or in combinations to fire diagonally. This is kind of tricky to do with just your thumb, as you have to do on the standard DC pad. When I first got the game, I was using an "Enforcer" joystick: a cheap, plasticky Western joystick with a badly-designed base, but with the upshot of having the buttons arranged in pretty much the correct diamond pattern, so you could use them to steet, but with all the fingers on your right hand, instead of just your thumb. I got rid of the Enforcers, though, when I graduated up to the nicer ASCII sticks, but unfortunately the ASCII's buttons don't fake as L&R analog triggers, so you're unable to do the very necessary trigger commands of swapping shot types and holding for a burst counter-attack. So it was back to the D-pad for me, and that intimidated me, so I just didn't play it for years.
 
And although I know people who swear that the control is better in the N64 original, since it was sort of designed with that system's kooky controller in mind, it really isn't all that bad on the DC pad--not bad enough not to play it, at any rate.
 
I forgot how hard the game is. How hard is it? Really hard, at times. Then again, some stages don't even have a real boss: you just talk to a dude, then shoot a green blob until it explodes. Many of the forty+ stages have actual bosses though, and they can be tough. Even after you've cleared all the stages, you can replay any stage for score whenever you want.
 
You can swap between two weapons: Riki's tracking missiles, and his sister Mami's rebounding lasers. The missiles, which home in on enemies and pack slightly more firepower per shot, work well in open areas where their tracking can kick in, but the lasers can be deadly in tight areas where they rebound all over the place until they hit something destructible.
 
Now, you can fly through the obstacle-laden levels just shooting, but you'll soon come to a point where you just can't shoot fast enough to take out all the enemies on their spawner platforms. This is where the counter-attack comes in: hold the trigger button and release it when a bunch of bullets are about to hit you, and you'll be rewarded with a huge volley of shots launched out in all directions from Bangai-O--with a max of 400 or so shots, the number depending on how many bullets were about to smack you, this can result in wholesale carnage on a miniature yet unrivalled scale, where homing missiles or rebounding lasers blossom forth from your battle robot in a seemingly solid sheet, destroying everything on the screen. Ah, a thing of beauty it is.
 
And there's a scoring trick tied to it: the more things you blow up at once, the more valuable Giant Space Fruit (tm) they drop when they die. So go for a lot of chains and rack up a big fruity score!
 
Yes, Treasure was at the top of their nutty creative game when they made this thing. Just for fun, I'm including the transcript of the game's text that I made back in the day. Riki rocks.

In the distant future, at the edge of the universe, lies
the planet Dan Star. Here Riki Makishi works for the People's
Police.
 
Listen up kid! The SF Kozmo Gang are setting up operations on Dan
Star and there's nothing you can do about it!
 
Oh yeah? Well, you'll have to get past the People's Police first!
 
People's Police? Ha ha ha! Don't make me laugh!
 
*Ouch*. Damn space bandits. Next time we meet you won't get away so
easy.
 
Hey father, I'm home!
 
Oh no! FATHER!!
 
Father are you okay? What happened here? Where's Mami?
 
Brother Riki... is that you? Thank goodness you're home. I was so
scared!
 
Mami, who did this?
 
Space bandits...
broke into our house...
attacked father...
smashed his computer...
 
Ri..Riki...
Listen to me...
 
The SF Kozmo Gang have invaded Dan Star! They are constructing
bases all over the planet to illegally trade space fruit!
 
They caught me hacking into their computer systems and traced my
location back to here...
 
SF
Kozmo
Gang?!
 
Riki wait! Come back! Don't be foolish! The SF Kozmo Gang is far
too powerful for you to face alone!
 
But don't give up hope. I have something that will help you...
 
I stole blueprints from the SF Kozmo Gang database and used them to
create an experimental battle robot.
 
Explosion Invincible Bangai-O!
 
Bangai-O? What kind of name is that for a battle robot?
 
Nevermind! In the name of the People's Police, I will pilot the
Bangai-O against the SF Kozmo Gang!
 
Riki, take me with you! I want to help!
 
Yes. Take Mami. Defeat the SF Kozmo Gang! Save Dan Star!

Mrs. M:
Welcome! I have been expecting you!
Riki:
You've been to the Boss already? I was hoping so!
Mrs. M:
Me and the boss? Rubbish, such nonsense! Here is the cool
Infostation.
Mami:
Infostation? Can't you give us a few important tips right now?
Mrs. M:
To start with, the following Info in particular:
Mrs. M:
How you destroy everything in one go using an all-round attack.
Mrs. M:
If you are surrounded, unleash an all-round attack with the R-
button.
Mrs. M:
This has cost you 50000 Credits so far.
Riki:
What? You're demanding money?
Riki:
So the situation is, that we are surrounded by enemies?
Mrs. M:
You're annoying me, I've already told you! So don't complain!
 
Sabu:
haha, are you at top speed, or Just very small!
Riki:
I take it you are the boss of this station! The boss, or maybe?
Sabu:
I am the street urchin Sabu. I've been waiting for you. Feel this
Yaasaan V3.
Riki:
Strange! I'm going to be beaten by a street urchin like you!
Mami:
Riki! Beat the boss, And you win! That's how the game's played!
Sabu:

Mrs. M:
Today in the Infostation It's Miracle Lucky Time with the super
sexy M.
Mrs. M:
This time I'll let you know something of the secret of the
shooting in Bangai-o
Riki:
Wow! Allright! What sort of secret is there?
Mrs. M:
Riki's weapons are homing spheres which pursue enemies without
being aimed.
Mrs. M:
Mami shoots with Bound-bullets which bounce off the wall.
Mrs. M:
Extremely effective In tight places.
Mrs. M:
You can replace the bullets using the L-button.
Mami:
Fantastic, Riki! From now on we are all warriors of Bangai-o!
Mrs. M:
Find out the details On your own. that's 50000 Credits.
 
Sabu:
Puh.
Riki:
Ah! Are you still alive?
Sabu:
I'm the boss of this Station and I won't let you Do this!
Riki:
Hah? Is that really you? Or perhaps you are the brother of the
other one!
Sabu:
You're really smoking now. Just look at the power of the Yaasaan
V3.
Riki:
Are you really the same person, or maybe?
Sabu:
Get ready, go!!

Mrs. M:
The fairy of the spring wind From the cosmetics corner of Ms
Infostation.
Mrs. M:
Today we find out how to refresh energy for an all-round attack.
Mrs. M:
You can see the amount of energy required from the number of
explosions.
Mrs. M:
In an extreme number of explosions the surplus energy is also
great.
Mami:
Sounds logical!
Mami:
All-round attacks and energy are related to some extent, aren't
they?
Riki:
although I don't understand it, It's totally interesting! Really!
Mrs. M:
It certainly was. Makes 50000 Credits.
 
Sabu:
Ahaha.
Riki:
It's you again!
Sa:
I've heard a rumour that You seem to be in pretty good shape.
Riki:
Don't play with me! You are Sabu, aren't you? Sabu! Come on, tell
me your name!

Mrs. M:
Do you know the large Space fruits that the Kosmo gang smuggle?
Riki:
What? Those legendary space fruits? The huge Space fruits?
Riki:
Go ahead, tell me! Where are these valuable things?
Mrs. M:
They appear when you destroy something.
Mrs. M:
You have already gained them without control.
Riki:
Okay, that's the way it is!
Riki:
They are huge fruits Which are apparently in space..
Mrs. M:
The type of fruit changes with the number of explosions.
Mrs. M:
The more, the better. Makes 50000 credits please.
 
Sabu:
Uff.
Riki:
Are you the only one? Or are there others?
Mami:

Riki:
Mami, I really hope, that you're wrong!
Riki:
Sabu, just tell me! But you are Sabu, aren't you? Maybe you are
someone else?
Sabu:
Hm, how can that be?

Mrs. M:
In the all-round attacks there is a difference in the number of
bullets, isn't there?
Mami:
Yes, that's a surprise to me! There's obviously some reason for
that, isn't there?
Riki:
What are you saying, Mami? I didn't know any of that! Are you
hiding anything from me?
Mrs. M:
Don't be an idiot! I continue. That is namely the counter-
attack.
Riki:
Counter-Attack!?
Mrs. M:
If hostile missiles are approaching, attacking from all sides!
Mrs. M:
Then the right number of bullets will be fired according to the
situation.
Riki:
So the more hostile missles there are, the better is our chance
of victory!?
Mrs. M:
But get your timing wrong And you die immediately.
Riki:
Oh man, life is bitter!

for that.
Koa-zoo:

Hashioka:
It's you! You are destroying our works of art!
Riki:
No, that's not true. The hero of justice does not destroy art!
Hashioka:
You've destroyed the Kosmo gang's station and with it destroyed
my work!
Riki:
Ah, you mean this base here? But that's not art!
Hashioka:
What, what are you saying? If that's not art, then just what is

Mrs. M:
This time I report of special crystal blocks.
Mrs. M:
There are blue ones and green ones and only bullets can pass
through them.
Mrs. M:
The blue ones are penetrated Only by Riki's homing bullets and
enemy bullets.
Mrs. M:
But Mami's Bound-bullets do not penetrate. What a pity, little
sister!
Riki:
But that's silly! Why doesn't it work with Mami's?
Mrs. M:
I do not know! Ask the inventor!
Mrs. M:
If the crystal is green, only enemy bullets pass through.
Mrs. M:
Pay attention to that!
Riki:
I don't understand! The Kosmo gang has an advantage!
Mrs. M:
As you say. Get excited after you have paid the 50000.

So, I am here.
Koa-zoo:
You caught me by surprise while I was talking! You just took a

Koa-zoo:
If you send him away from home, he'll have many problems.

Litre? Do you measure Gimunema in litres? But we don't need any.
Agent:
Just one moment! Are you saying that my product is of poor
quality?
Agent:
I am just travelling on the Otoshimaeglade stolen from the gang.
Agent:
Apparently it can be tested only in battle.
Riki:
Interesting, let's really find out how bad your stuff is!

I apologise for that. The Spirits are Not bad.
Miss W:
They just want to be as strong and powerful as you.
Mami:
I would just like to say thank you For the advice of a learned
historical personality.
Miss W:
Ah, a wave of spirits again.
Miss W:
I am Galileo.
Miss W:
The headquarters of the Kosmo gang is on the Planet known as
earth.
Miss W:
Make your way to earth! May God protect you!
Riki:
The spirits might Be busy? But they are really restrained.

Well!
Riki:
What? Really? Is that true? You are the Now Clear Man?
Now Clear Man:
There's no doubt about it. I am the hero of justice!
Now Clear Man:
You, young man, you appear to fight for justice day-in day-out!
Riki:
Obviously! When I am happy, I only sing Your tune!
Riki:
In hard times it reminds me of other songs and gives me courage.
Now Clear Man:
Mm! Well, to be brief, do you know why I am here?
Riki:
But that's logical. Certainly to kill all those that threaten the
peace.
Now Clear Man:
Exactly!

Typical of you. An impudent person who is annoying my gang.
Riki:
Hmm! Are you the new boss of the gang? Tell me your name!
Gai:
I am Gai, the leader of the Kosmo gang. I have over 208 million
members.
Riki:
Your blathering is really scathing. Heh! Your people are all
finished!
Gai:
They are not my subordinates!
Mami:
Riki, he is lying! He is only a smuggler, a real bandit!
Gai:
What we are doing with the fruits, that's got nothing to do with
you. You'd better get back.

Mami:
The Kosmo gang really does have many fruits, doesn't it?
Riki:
Man! Are they the legendary fruits?
Miss W:
It would appear that the enemy has started trading the fruits
illegally.
Miss W:
They are making huge profits from this activity.
Miss W:
Military power comes from financial power.
Miss W:
The art of war. I am convinced Of this.
Riki:
Well now is probably the time For us to introduce him to you,
 
Harumage:
Hah, you? What do you mean, when you say that you want my power?
Riki:
What are you saying? Just what sort of power does a weird fish
like you have?
Harumage:
Tell me, for example, that you did not have any knowledge of it.
Riki:
What? I'm not sure I understand, But I have the feeling that you
do have power.
Harumage:
Well then. Show me what you've got!
Riki:
That presumably means 'Give me courage!' OK, so now I'm free.
Harumage:
That's just ridiculous. In the world of politics your death will
be a swift and short one.
Riki:
Ah don't you mean courage?
Riki:
Well that's something that you cannot repeat in front of
children, can you?
Harumage:
That I who was feared as leader Harumage should be mocked by you?
Harumage:
Then try to be adopted by the gang with this Gikyoodain-book.

Miss W:
Robots are unforgettable. Because I invented and built them back
then.
Riki:
What! Grandpa, you built Bangai-o!?
Miss W:
You call him Bangai-o today? At that time he was called
Eisenmann.
Miss W:
He was a splendid invention.
Miss W:
Unfortunately back then he was taken by the gang as security for
a debt.
Miss W:
But I am comforted by the fact that he is still functioning well.

Well, then I shall return home.

Please listen! Did I not just say that I want to destroy them!

That's surely what you meant to say, isn't it?
Sukedachi Zukin:
Well, if that's the case, then you must be more powerful than the
Kosmo gang.

No doubt it's because you are a someone that drops into the

Wrong. The so-called evil actually lies within you.

Once you have conquired your own evil, a heart ful of love will

Miss W:
He is the Nice Gai, who calls the Kosmo gang together once a

Why does this Nice Gai pervade the whole universe?

It's to do with the fact that his family left him when he was
small.

Why that's terrible!

Montgomery:
And then, when all was quiet, the man emerged from the shadows.
Montgomery:
That's just about enough, I think.
Montgomery:
In the near dark room, a person rises.
Montgomery:
He hasn't touched the Sake yet.
Montgomery:
It is this woman. The man is forced to lower his gaze.
Montgomery:
It's been a long time, hasn't it! I knew you would come.
Montgomery:
The woman spoke to the man without noticing his movements.
Montgomery:
I haven't forgotten What happened last time. I cannot allow you
that.
Montgomery:
Silent steps approach.
Montgomery:
You have still to feel your true feelings.
Montgomery:
That you have come here is the proof.
Montgomery:
The world is bitter. Nobody can live completely alone.
Montgomery:
You ask me for help.
Montgomery:
The man answered All the while keeping His eyes down.
Montgomery:
who you describe as a woman who has sold her past
Montgomery:
Somebody like me, ...
Montgomery:
Wrong! That is wrong!
Montgomery:
The man strikes the table and stands up.
Montgomery:
The spilt alcohol soaks his sleeve.
Montgomery:
A woman who has sold her past?
Riki:

Mrs. M:
Finally you are at the headquarters.
Mrs. M:
How does it feel to be at your final destination?
Riki:
I'm very happy, M.
Riki:
Finally I've arrived at the place I've dreamed about for ever.
Mrs. M:
I meant something different.
Mrs. M:
You have managed to get here without having paid a penny.
Mami:
Excuse me, we have points, but we have no money.
Miss W:
Heh, I sense a really powerful spirit. I shall call him.
Miss W:
Hahahaha! I am the Kosmo gang-Boss Gai! Long time no see, rascal!
Riki:
You! You are Gai! The Gai of the Kosmo gang!
Miss W:
I think I just said that.
Miss W:
It's still too early to rest completely!
Miss W:
From here the road to hell awaits you!
Miss W:
Just come here!
Miss W:
I'll pulverise you with my ultimate weapon The End of Treasure!

Mrs. M:
Hey, could you stop using my little sister as a telephone?
 
Gai:
There is still only one hero.
Gai:
Have you finally come here to destroy me?
Riki:
You said it! You, the bandit who wrecks the universe!
Riki:
I'm ready for you!
Gai:
You sweet scoundrel.
Gai:
Do you really think that you can just simply remove me, the last
boss.
Riki:
Yes, I am sure of it.
Gai:
Well! If that is the case and I do lose, then a touching end
would be really nice!
Riki:
Touching? You would be touched?
 
Do you understand? You from the Kosmo Gang! From now on peace
reigns throughout the universe!
 
The, the man...
 
Ha? What's wrong, Father?
 
Ga-Gai?! My younger brother, Isn't that Gai?
 
Your brother?! What do you mean, Father?
 
I suppose things have gone This far I must tell you what happened
on that fateful day long ago.
 
Well... It all happened about 80 years ago. It was the middle of
winter and an unforgettably icy wind was howling. Gai and I were
running along a dark alleyway. Around then there was a popular play
with the title "The Gods of South East Asia, their rise and fall."
Back then we were both young...
 
...but they didn't even open their mouths. Gai and I sobbed thick
wet tears. Even the then when we were completely desolate, a young
woman came to us.
We couldn't breathe. For her face was just like that of Hiroko's.
The light from the evening sun went down on us.
 
"Gai, Gaiiiiii", I called as I ran up to him. But it was already
too late. The sea appeared to tower up like a mountain and a
massive youth appeared. His body stood in the way of the beaming
sun and cast a huge shadow. Then the huge lad opened his mouth and
said: "The paradise for business".
 
Father, I feel as if a huge weight has been lifted from my
shoulderss.
 
So everything is well. It is well. Everything was thus over.
 
So, from now on we are six in our family. Long live friendship for
all!

Bangai-O does not, alas the day, support VGA. I guess they figured that it didn't matter much since the game is low-res 2D, but, dang.
