This game is a bootleg of "Xevious". It has different explosion sound than the original Xevious. The titlescreen says '1980' but the game was certainly released in 1983.
Secret Message : The bootlegger has included the trick for generating a message right at the beginning of the game. As soon as Solvalou appears, move to the far right edge of the screen and begin bombing constantly. Continue bombing until the first set of attacking rings is very close to you and then shoot the rings. The message 'Dead copy making copy under Namco program.' will appear on the screen.
