Super Star Soldier is a shoot 'em up, the sequel to the great Star Soldier. This game actually shows the gaming power of the NEC's PC Engine / TurboGrafx console!
Super Star SoldierSTORY / GAMEPLAY
Super Star Soldier is among the best vertical shoot 'em up games ever developed for the PC Engine / TurboGrafx-16 gaming console. The story takes place somewhere in the far future, where you are (once more) the last hope for planet Earth that's been attacked by an alien species. The game follows the well performed shooter formula we saw in Star Soldier and Gunhead, with amn additional selection of weapon upgrades and a variety of aerial and land spaces to fly over. The spaceship's smart bombs are achieved by collecting flashing power-up orbs and these also give you an extra bonus: the ability to continue from the point of death, for each orb you collect. Once you run out of orbs, you are set back to a starting point, earlier in the level. Super Star Soldier is an absolutely stunning game, although its also too difficult to play. But hey, most of the games of this genre are not a walk in the park anyway!

The game's graphics are plain beautiful featuring super fast action, colorful and detailed backgrounds and awesome sprites swarming your screen with flawless animation. Apart from the great visuals, Super Star Soldier also offers superb sound, with some strong in-game music tunes and stereophonic sound effects!
