    Grid Seeker - Project Storm Hammer © 1992 Taito Corp.

    It is August 1999. In the skies over the Middle East, the second Persian Gulf War has begun. The early half of the 90's, the Persian Gulf War breaks out in the Middle East and prolonged fighting rapidly increases the rate of destruction of the world's natural resources. In 1999 this develops into a state of crisis where the effects of the war have resulted in an absolute shortage of reserves. Mistaken policies have resulted in the nation of the Middle East, suffering from shortages since the time of the original Persian Gulf War, taking military action against neighboring nations in an attempt to assure a supply of resources for themselves. Those nations which have managed to escape the fighting once again form a Multinational Force. Using the technology gained from research which had been done for a new type of nuclear reactor, they succeed in developing and producing GRID - a Gyrodrive Reactive Intercept Device. This is the start of Project Storm Hammer.

    TIPS AND TRICKS
    • INSTRUCTIONS:
    • Choose from one of the three aircraft:
    -- The F-14 Fighter: The fastest of the three but has the least powerful firepower, concentrated at the front.
    -- The AH-64F Attack Helicopter: The most average but fires scattered shots.
    -- The B-2AT Stealth Bomber: slow moving but has the greatest fire power when upgraded.

    • Press the Fire button to attack normally.
    • Hold the Fire button while moving up and down to change the position of the GRID.
    • Press the Bomb button to use one of your bombs for a massive attack, which is different according to which colour GRID you have:
    -- Red: A massive fireball damaging all enemies on the screen.
    -- Blue: A concentrated forward attack.
    -- Green: Green energy swirls around hitting enemies on the screen.
    -- Yellow: A concentrated explosion in a small area, doing massive damage.

    • When the GRID is hit by an enemy bullet, the power gauge at the bottom of the screen will increase. When the gauge reaches its maximum level, you will gain an extra bomb (up to a maximum of four).
    • Collect power-up items to upgrade your aircraft.
    • ITEMS LIST:
    (P) Power-Up: Increases your shot power by one level to a maximum of level 7.
    (H) Helper: Makes an ally support ship appear.
    (G) GRID Changer: Changes your GRID shot and bomb effect according to the colour. The colour cycles between red, blue, green and yellow.
