Was ported to the Mega Drive in Japan - a similar version known as Sagaia was also released on the Genesis. My brother has the original Japanese version; I've had a few goes on it and love it to bits. It's not crazily difficult for a shmup but still a great challenge for new and veteran players alike. - Entranced98

Especially with its gameplay being a lot more polished than the original, there's no reason for this to not deserve a place on here. - Entranced98
