A classic CAPCOM arcade game port from OCEAN.

Known as perhaps the best 8 bit port for this game (so say the Amstradists) and of course amongst the best the GX4000/PLUS have to offer..

It is quite faithful to the Arcade.

Implementation details and use of Plus hardware

  • Mode 0 is used for background and panel
  • Plus palette is used for the nice colours in the background
  • Plus sprites are used for the plane sprite (on the map), the bubbles/balls and the man
  • Plus screen split is used for the panel at the bottom (split is set to line 199, so that the split occurs on line 200)
  • Plus pixel by pixel hardware scroll is not used.
  • Some sprites are software sprites (weapons, bird)
  • Z80 Interrupt mode 2 is used (IVR auto-clear is active. All interrupt vectors point to the same function).
