The best Genesis game ever!
17 August 2008 | by soaresbrenoSee all my reviews

Man, I can't explain how I felt when I found a version of this game to download in the Internet. I missed this game so much. I spent nine years without playing this game (I gained a Playstation and gave my Genesis away), and now here I am, fighting the Empire and destroying Golden Silver once again. I remember that my favorite weapon combination ever was chaser+laser (or vice-versa). For me it was the perfect weapon. know that chaser+chaser worked better, because it were many beans, but the "living laser", as I would call the combination above, was faster,and I didn't have to direct it. The only thing I didn't like was that Gunstar Green wasn't available as a playable character, but nothing is perfect.
