Task Force Harrier EX (タスクフォースハリアーEX?) is a 1991 vertical scrolling shooter video game for the Sega Genesis. It is a port of the 1989 arcade game Task Force Harrier.

Summary[edit]

This is a conventional scrolling shooter. Your mission is to penetrate a hostile communist military force situated inside Russian territory.[2] The player takes control of a Harrier fighter jet with two types of main weapons.[2] The first type can only shoot flying opponents, such as enemy planes and copters; the second, a bomb-type weapon, can only hit ground enemies, such as tanks and turrets.[2] The player can also acquire escorts to increase firepower.[2] Changing the formation of the escort fighters results in different shot patterns and also affects the maneuvering speed.[2]
