You can increase the power of your primary weapon by collecting “P” items. Your ship also has a charge feature, where if you do not touch the fire button for a few seconds, your ship will charge up a powerful shot that can destroy many of the enemies on-screen. You can also acquire secondary weapons by collecting a gem. The gem changes colors, and depending on which color it is when you collect it, you will get a different weapon. You can power up your secondary weapon by collecting another gem of the same color.


On release, the game was scored a 30 out of 40 by a panel of four reviewers at Famicom Tsūshin.[1]
