Released in June 1989 in Japan.

Developed by Toaplan. Even if developed by this famous shoot'em up company, Twin Hawk was not a good game, and it was a flop.

The title of this game translates from Japanese as 'Great Whirlwind'.

This game is known outside Japan as "Twin Hawk".
There are several differences between "Twin Hawk" and Daisenpuu :
* Twin Hawk supports 2 simultaneous players.
* Dai Senpuu supports 2 players, but only one at a time. Because of this, it also supports Cocktail cabinets.
* In Twin Hawk, both planes are purple and pink for player 1 and 2 respectively.
* In Dai Senpuu, the planes are green for both players.
* In Twin Hawk, when you die, you continue the game at your current position.
* In Dai Senpuu, when you die, you continue the game at predefined positions. This makes the game much more difficult to complete.
Developed by Toaplan.
