Dai Sen Puu Custom [Model NAPR-1019]
Emulated in MAME ! [Console] PC-Engine CD Game
Dai Sen Puu Custom © 1991 NEC Avenue, Limited.
The players takes control of a World War II plane and fights his way through a vast array of enemy air defenses such as tanks, submarines and battle ships (curiously, there aren't any enemy planes in the game). Our fighter plane can use a classic Vulcan gun and a special, but limited, bomb attack. The latter calls a formation of friendly planes that will shoot at will until they eventually get hit. Pressing the bomb button twice triggers a powerful smart-bomb and wipes out most of the enemies on screen. A standard power-up system upgrades the plane throughout the game - destroying tiny truck usually frees up power-icons. Some, stamped with a large character P on them, upgrade the plane's main gun up to four times. Others give away extra bombs or rare extra lives.
Dai Sen Puu Custom for PC-Engine CD was released on July 26, 1991 in Japan for 6800 Yen.
This game can be described as a remixed version of the HuCard game released in 1989. Dai Sen Puu Custom obviously shows some differences when compared to its HuCard counterpart. Background variations can be seen throughout the game. Because of the way the game is divided into stages (rather than a continuous and uninterrupted battlefield), enemies sometimes appear in different order and formations. Only a couple of new bosses and an 'extra' stage are featured in this 'custom' version. Some sprites have also been changed, like the small explosions.
