PS3 minis version of SNK's first game, Ozma Wars!

Oh man this game is kind of infuriating; it's neat how you go through this array of various space things comin' at you but the way they'll just accelerate suddenly in this really jerky way and you're just being collided with is pretty rough! = o
This version has a different presentation than the one in SNK 40th Anniversary Collection (on PS4, etc), which had simulated tinted cellophane screen overlays to give the game rows of colors; and I do like the big colorful border art here. ; )
Not all the keys to which you're supposedly mapping buttons actually seem to work. : PPP
"G1M2" logo at start, apparently was a California company.
Ozma Wars came out a few months after Namco's Galaxian at the end of 1979, as a conversion kit for Taito's 1978 hit Space Invaders.
The space battleship that gives you energy at the beginning is pretty cool. ^ _^

Minis, blurry as they are, play on a 1080p screen on PS3.
