Description of GUN BIRD
Gunbird uses anime-styled character as the player's chosen craft. A story plays out in between levels and before boss fights, telling a tale of how the protagonists are trying to collect pieces of a magic mirror to make a wish.
An interesting vertical shooter. Fight various types of enemies mechs, demons and odd mecanical devices on your way to destroy the demon located at the end of the final level.
Psikyo, the Gunbird maker, released 24 different machines in our database under this trade name, starting in 1993.
Other machines made by Psikyo during the time period Gunbird was produced include Battle K-Road, Strikers 1945, Sengoku Ace Episode 2, Tengai, Strikers 1945 II, and Sengoku Ace.
Go from area to area, destroying minor enemies, minor bosses, and finally, some interesting major bosses. Each character has a different attack and bombing style of their own. Power-ups happen very quickly. Enemy shots are plentiful, and the environment is target-rich.
This game offers a nice selection of characters to choose from. You may play as a 13 year-old witch (with a rabbit sidekick) riding a broom stick, a man with a jetpack, a Russian robot, an elf like female, or an old man riding a pedal helicopter. You may hold down the fire button for a few seconds, after which, a low grade special attack will be released upon etting off of the button. Very nice anime-style artwork -- visually appealing. Nice attract mode!
