In the year 2269, Earth is overrun with enormous, cybernetic monsters known as Hyper Insects. Their primary base is an underground mobile fort known only as the mothership. In order to combat the Hyper Insects, the defense forces create an insect bio-jet in similar form to the enemy called the Chimera which transforms the pilot into a humanoid insect upon use. This happens to the protagonist Kato Melange (whose name was changed to Rad Ralph in the US version), who has been assigned to attack the Hyper Insects and reclaim Earth.
The game played similarly to Dragon Spirit as players controlled a living flying creature that could change colors, earning more hit-points and thus changing its firing pattern and weapons. The Chimera could transform into four varieties and be equipped with one of four different types of firing patterns depending on item color. The ship also had a shield that could be increased. Extends were set at every 100,00 points.
Some of the content seems to be influenced by film/manga Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, such as time period and insects overtaking the world.
