DAISENPU CUSTOM (NEC AVENUE / TOAPLAN)

CD-ROM2 SYSTEM (JAPANESE VERSION)

Another Toaplan shooter which has been ported to the PC-ENGINE, this time converted by NEC Avenue. This game, a 1943-like shooter, were released on both HU-Card (Daisenpu) and CD format (Daisenpu Custom)...both versions are identical, except for the Audio-CD soundtrack on the latter. Daisenpu was originally made for arcade, and is also known as Twin Hawk.

 

Daisenpu Custom is a pretty simple game, when compared to other PC-ENGINE titles. In this shooter, you control a World War II plane, and must destroy all the enemies you meet along your way, such as tanks, ships, cannons and stuffs like that.
 

Graphics are a little disappointing, much worse than arcade's, but the CD musics are really good...the gameplay is OK. Throughout the game, you can increase the shot power of your airplane and also win extra lives, gathering the "squares" you'll find after destroy some enemies. You can also call a squad to help you on hard situations. Daisenpu Custom is a difficult game, specially for those who are just starting to play shooters, but you can adjust the difficulty level and the number of lives, in the CONFIG option.

  

Daisenpu Custom is a shooter from the early 90's, very simple, but deserves to be known and to be played, at least, once. Not a bad title, but it's nothing special.
