  "A boss."
Xanac-like with different weapons and things, still pretty fun.

  "Turrets and stuff."
I'm not keen on constantly being switched back and forth between different weapons when snagging what ought to be real powerups. But other than that, the game does very well, moving fast with nice-looking sprites and all that sort of thing. Easy in the early going, I'm sure it gets tough later on.

Sorry, that's "Zanac" (see entry 307) and the similarity between it and GunHed ("Blazing Lasers" in the States) is no coincidence since, according to the Internet, Compile made both of them.

It finally starts to get challenging around Areas -6 and -7; -8 is a brutal bubble bombardment (oh those sound effects argh), and -9, which someone on the internet said is the final stage, is a boss rush that I haven't made it through. ;_; Wikipedia says you get 4 continues. Also apparently the game was named after a Japanese sci-fi action movie that released around the same time in 1989.
