Original (arcade) by Namco, 1981. NES port also by Namco - as far as I can tell it was ported for Japan in 1985 and then released in the US in 1988.

 

 

Tips

 

rjchamp3

be captured by enemy beam regain ship if you can then gain double fire power

 

I'll add to that:

You can shoot your own ship while it is captured, so shoot carefully!

Also - if you get sucked in by the tractor beam when you don't want to be, you can still shoot while spinning; sometimes (not that rarely, actually) you can shoot the ship that is sucking you in and be freed.

Not a bad port, just gotta work at it more.

By the way, did you notice how they added the subtitle 'Demons of Death' on the packaging? (How did that get past Nintendo's censors?) They also did a similar thing with Xevious as 'Xevious The Avenger.'

 

(The latter actually gave me the idea to write a short story based on that title.)
