Jupiter Strike (Zeitgeist in Japan) is a 3D - scrolling shooter game for the PlayStation developed by Taito. Taito published the Japanese and European version, while Acclaim published the American version. A Microsoft Windows version was also released worldwide. The player takes control of a futuristic fighter jet that has two main weapons. Unlike other scroll shooters this game does not have any power ups. Instead the player's ship has a laser sub-weapon that homes into locked on targets. The player must battle against extraterrestrial ships which can range from small fighters to large mother ships.
