Space Harrier II™

“Shoot ‘em up” is a subgenre of shooter video games.  In a shoot ‘em up, the player controls a lone character, often in a spacecraft or aircraft, shooting large numbers of enemies while dodging their attacks. This genre of games was very popular in arcade games.

Space Harrier II™ is a third-person rail shooter game. The game involves a super human hero who has to go through different rounds while defeating enemies.

The Gameplay

The gameplay of the game involves a super human hero who runs and flies towards a forever distant background on a checkerboard-styled ground. The enemies are unique, featuring prehistoric animals, Chinese dragons, and alien pods.  The player is forced along the levels, running or flying around enemy fire, while shooting back with fireballs via the character’s under-arm cannon.

As the playing field moves forward, enemies come from behind and from the far distance to attack the character, by either firing a projectile or trying to crash into him. The player must also dodge large objects in his path, some of which can be destroyed, such as trees, and others that cannot be destroyed, such as ionic columns and pylons. One hit from an enemy or a crash into these large objects will cause the player to lose a life. Smaller objects, such as foliage, will only cause the character to trip.

Strategy

Enemies move onto the screen in uniform clusters. A signal tone is played to alert the player that there is a non-stationary enemy in the playing field.

Difficulty Levels

There are a total of 12 stages, each with its own enemy at the end. A stage usually consists of different landscapes and can also move at different speeds. All twelve levels must be completed before moving on to the “Final Chapter” stage.  It is here that the player must defeat all the main bosses over again, and then fight the Dark Harrier. The game ends when all lives are lost.

Interface and Controls

The interface and controls are very easy. Just use the arrow keys to move the character and a control button to use the gun.

Space Harrier II™ is a very creative game. Its features and concepts are just like the games that we play these days.
