    There was in fact a precident for this type of game that was faster and a decade earlier – Space Laser, a 79 or 80 arcade game. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=L7qTE99j3Eo

  2. I remember I played this game waaay back on my aunt’s Game Boy (on one of those flea market 50-on-1 cartridges). Although I forgot most about the game I still remember that the game had awesome music, so I was very happy I found out about it’s name again on your channel 25 years later. 🙂
