    Armed Formation F © 1990 Pack-In-Video Company, Limited.

    Armed Formation F is a vertical shooter by Big Don and the adaptation of Nichibutsu's arcade game originally released in 1988. The player takes control of a red spacecraft called the Vowger and fights his way through several stages made up of all kind of organic components. Tentaculous eye-balls and all sort of armed shellfish try to stop the player in his progression. To help the Vowger fulfill its mission, special power-ups can be retrieved from flying pods scattered around the game. They deliver basic upgrades such as speed-ups and, more interestingly, new weaponry. The list is actually quite large and includes side-bombs, laser-beams, homing-missiles and other colorful and flashy disc-beams. These power-ups vary throughout the game and each stage features its own set of weapons. Special flying orbs can be collected and have the ability to stay close to the ship to protect it. The second attack button can send them fly in formation for a short amount of time (hence the title of the game).

    TRIVIA
    Released on March 23, 1990 in Japan for 6800 Yen.

    Armed Formation F was originally released in the arcades by Nichibutsu in 1988. The game is especially hard because of its lack of continues and unbalanced difficulty level. It also features bright and colorful graphics which were replaced by sharper, visually more aggressive and blocky backdrops in the PC Engine version.
