Vortex (formerly known as Citadel) is a 3D shooter game developed by Argonaut Software and released by Electro Brain for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System in September 1994.[1] It is one of a few titles designed to use the Super FX GSU-1 enhancement chip.

Gameplay[edit]

The player pilots an experimental mech called the Morphing Battle System against the seven worlds of the Aki-Do Forces.[2] The MBS can transform between four different modes, fueling unconfirmed speculation that the concept may have been derived from an unreleased game based on Transformers: Generation 2.[3]
