HELLFIRE S (TOAPLAN / NEC AVENUE)

 CD-ROM2 SYSTEM (JAPANESE VERSION)

Hellfire S, originally produced by Toaplan and ported to the PC-ENGINE by NEC Avenue, is an excellent option for those who enjoy shooters like Gate of Thunder and R-TYPE. This game also exists on Arcade and Megadrive (only Hellfire, without the S), but the PC-ENGINE version is much better than those versions. First, because it's a CD game with astonishing Redbook Audio musics, and, second, because it has some terrific animes along the whole game. Gameplay is also a must on Hellfire S, specially because the game doesn't have an insane difficulty. If you've played Hellfire on Megadrive, you know what I'm talking about! ;)

 

In Hellfire S, the Earth is invaded by unknown alien forces. As soon as the attack begins, lots of combat aircrafts are sent to defend the Earth, but our weapons are useless against the alien forces. Earth's last hope lay on two female pilots and two outstanding spaceships.
 

You can pick up 4 different kinds of weapons and increase their fire power. The background graphics are well done and original on Hellfire S, as well as the ships and bosses. The game has some really excellent tunes and several sound FX. Ah, almost forgot to say this: Hellfire S is one of the few PC-ENGINE shooters with a 2 simultaneous players option.

  

Like I've said above, Hellfire S is a heck of a shooter, which is now brought to you by UNIVERSO PC-ENGINE.
