Welcome to the fifth in a series of sneak peeks into what will eventually become Ground Kontrol 3.0: bigger, better and featuring even more classic games! Throughout this series, we’ll be taking quick looks at various things like equipment, construction, design, and most importantly: games! But we won’t be pulling up the curtain completely – rather, we’ll just give you a brief glance. To see the rest, you’ll just have to wait!
Released in the late 80s, this futuristic space shooter was brought to arcades with the help of one of gaming’s giants. Players piloted a ship through difficult stages against an all-consuming threat, collecting standard power-ups along with a unique power-up that actually attached and detached from their ship. This additional fighting force also allowed you to exploit some weaknesses in several boss battles, after you perfected the timing each battle demanded.
