|Sequel to the original Zanac (which you can play in the PS1 Zanac X Zanac, entry 307). Incredible amounts of sprite flicker show the high-speed sprites are pushing the limits of the old Fami, but some of the bosses reach impressive size. Didn't play it myself but watched a friend single-credit it on the first try--not all that hard as shooters go, I would guess. But it must have taken him a good 45 minutes at least, incredibly lengthy for a vertical shooter.
I'm really only posting this for the congratulations screen that comes up at the end... which I will post shortly.
Could have sworn this was in a US cart but now I'm not sure.
