STATUS
Extraordinary home conversion of Toaplan's arcade milestone, Taito's very first release for the PC Engine.

STATUS
The Famicom manages a perfectly competent version of the arcade favourite - as FC shooters go it's an undeniable success.
The problem is that by the time it came out, the PC Engine had already delivered the goods.

Standard FC packaging, 2Mbit cartridge, booklet.

STATUS
Ouch. Treco's 1991 MD version is an utter disaster: late, ugly, glitchy, lazy and botched.
Pack it in, Treco. You suck. You can't even spell 'Cartridge' (see box).

Standard MD case, 6Mbit cartridge, colour booklet.

STATUS
Toaplan shooting game retrospective for the PlayStation, featuring:
- Tiger Heli (1985)
- Kyūkyoku Tiger / Twin Cobra (1987)
A nice package; it's just a shame that only one volume was ever made.
Also, it was released in such small numbers that it is now prohibitively expensive!

PlayStation case, PS CD-ROM disc, colour booklet, spine card.
