Ordyne (オーダイン Ōdain?) is a horizontal scrolling shooter arcade game that was released by Namco in 1988 only in Japan. It runs on Namco System 2 hardware, and it was ported to the Japanese PC Engine in 1989 and the North American TurboGrafx-16 in 1990. The arcade version was included in Namco Museum Volume 4. The PCE/TG16 version was released on the Wii's North American Virtual Console on May 7, 2007 in North America and on August 21, 2007 in Japan. It is officially described by Namco as a "comical action shooter".
When shooting enemy forces, Yūichirō and Sunday can pick up crystals that can be used to buy special weapons, extra lives, etc. Miyuki-chan's shop passes by at certain points in each level. When Dream Co., Ltd. passes by, Yūichirō and Sunday can win a large number of crystals or a special weapon by shooting at his rotating target. One hit will kill Yūichirō and Sunday, but they can either earn or buy extra lives. This game also features voice samples (in Japanese).
