Moving the ship up or down rotates the pods around the main ship, and holding the fire button down locks them into position. Full front pods increase the power of the shot, and full side pods increase weapon range.
Looking for a shooter, plain and simple?: Tengen's arcade hit Grindstormer has made its way to the Genesis. The rule of the game is simple: Blast or be blasted. While you pilot a spaceship through six increasingly difficult levels, hostile forces fire on you from the air and the ground. Beat an enemy to the attack, and its scorched remains leave a satisfying scar on the alien terrain below. Power-ups along the way soup up your aircraft — if you can snag them before an alien missile or tank blasts you to oblivion. Our advice: stay put and wait for the power-ups to float to you. In fact, don't even bother to search out your enemies. Just hang back at the bottom of the screen and fire nonstop.
- Conserve your bombs — you have a limited number.
- Don't bother going after every enemy. Some will fly right past you it they're not headed toward your side of the screen.
- Your aircraft can bomb and shoot at the samebme.
