So apparently, someone developed a SHMUP for the Game Gear.

Looking at the footage it looks okay, the backgrounds seem ripped from Altered Beast and Sonic

looks neat but that is one shady looking snail, i wouldn't lend him 5 bucks he's so shady looking.

Hopefully the ripped backgrounds are only placeholders.

Only one bullet on screen at a time?!

c'mon lets throw the developer a bone. Hardly anyone is making stuff for SMS or GG these days. I like the snail graphic, the enemy sprites, and the concept. I think the ripped backgrounds is a clever idea. It just needs some more enemies + bullets and of course explosions of some sort. bosses would be nice too. its obviously unfinished but I think kinda neat!

The snail is actually ripped straight from Wonder Boy. http://atariage.com/forums/uploads/monthly_11_2011/post-26314-0-61624700-1321912241.png (only spritesheet of that game I could find on DuckDuckGo's image search)Also, right on the money about the graphics being ripped from AB. 11515 And the palette is slightly different for the graphics from Sonic 1, but they're there. 11516
