Alisia Dragoon

Alisia Dragoon

Released for the Genesis in 1992, Alisia Dragoon is an obscure little gem that never got the praise it deserved, probably thanks to SOA’s brilliant marketing division (Gunstar Heroes or Ristar anyone?).

In original, you must destroy a foreign nation’s supply of ballistic missiles.
