    TRIVIA
    Out Zone was released in August 1990.

    Several characters from other Toaplan games make cameo appearances as powerups or bonuses:
    • Six plane squadron from "Flying Shark" fly on the screen shooting enemies in an upside down V shape pattern.
    • The "Truxton" ship follows the player helping out.
    • ZIG-01 from "Zero Wing" flies on the screen dragging a bunch of '5000' points bonuses.
    • Pipiru, Toaplan's mascot from "Zero Wing" can be summoned in level 1 from shooting a hole in a rock. It is vulnerable to all weapons, but it will bring a significant score bonus if safely taken to the level's boss.

    Pony Canyon / Scitron released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Out Zone, Snow Bros. - PCCB-00044) on 21/10/1990.

    UPDATES
    Out Zone new version uses different enemies in some stages and has extra bonuses compared to the old version. The music sequences are also in different orders between the sets.

    TIPS AND TRICKS
    • Hidden Functions: If the 'Invulnerability dip switch' is enabled, you are invulnerable but you may also 'Pause' the game with P2 Start and restart with P1 Start.
