Kyuukyoku Tiger © 1989 Taito Corp.
Kyukyoku Tiger was originally an arcade game made by Taito in 1987. The player takes control of an heavy armed helicopter and must shoot his way through ten long stages and endless waves of enemy helicopters, planes and tanks. New weapons can be of course collected along the way. You start with a simple vulcan gun, but large green helicopters (or large boats in later stages) drop new items when destroyed: Four-ways (Yellow), Laser (Green), Vulcan Gun (red) and short range Spread-bullets (Blue). Other special items can also be collect, like the ultra-handy S icons which will upgrade your current weapons, or the 1up for an extra life. Your last weapon, and not the least, is the powerfull napalm bomb. You start with a limited amount but they'll cleanup a fair amount of screen when used.
