    Space Gun © 1990 Taito Corp.

    As a member of a special Search And Rescue unit. you (and an optional friend) are told to investigate an S.O.S. distress signal that was sent from a space station. what you don't know is that a group of vicious aliens have taken the colonists hostage. luckily for you, you're armed with a plasma pulse gun and four sets of grenades that are quite special (aside from the common grenade that explodes, some will freeze, incinerate, and even slice and dice the aliens).

    TIPS AND TRICKS
    • Using Bombs, each Bomb has a specific effect.
    1) Fire: Aliens will burn.
    2) Bomb: Aliens will explode.
    3) Sword: Aliens will be cut.
    4) Freeze: Aliens will be frozen.

    • Harder mode: If you stay at as low health as possible, the difficulty will be harder. And if you reach the time out, a powerful Alien will appear.
    • Good Ending: Your cockpit should not be destroyed in last stage.
