STRIKE II was released in Europe and U.S.A. by SEGA for Master
System, and for the first and only time, this COMPILE game was
not released in Japan.
ROM cartridge of 1993 give you the role of a pilot, a pothunter
living in the 30's, because the skies and coasts near Italy are
plundered by pirates, they became pirates after the 1929's crisis,
a way of getting money, but an outlaw way of living. In this "shodown
above Adriatic" context, you will fly in a vertical scrolling
shooting game of course, it's here really kinda MASTER SYSTEM
version of an ALESTE 2, the common points with MSX version don't
let any doubt survive (except the hybrid hi-tech/1930 machinery),
another common point is that the game pulls out the best of the
machine on which it was programmed. The SEGA 8 Bit give its best
and the result is a wondreful game, for sure the best realisation
of that kind for this game console (not joking, sprites are so
incredibly numerous!). POWER STRIKE II is the worthy successor
of POWER STRIKE (the name of first ALESTE for other country than
Japan, released in 1988 on MASTER SYSTEM, so eternal ALESTE).
are some screenshots galleries to illustrate my words.
graphics : End the game, you will have differents graphics in
the option mode after that, they are in relation with the difficulty
level, each difficulty level has its own CG. If you think that
finishing POWER STRIKE 2 in Wild difficulty level is too hard
for you, or if you don't have the time, then visit the gallery
above and you will see all the omake graphics.
