Based on the acclaimed 1984 Hayao Miyazaki movie. Unfortunately this isn't gonna be a great review as, I'm not sure if it's a problem with my copy of the game or not, but I can't figure out what to do.

The basic gameplay involves attempting to pilot a gunship. It's possible to fire it's cannon although I've found nothing to actually shoot and you can vary the gunship's speed but beware of the fuel levels.

Time passes as you fly over the green land, occasionally passing a God Warrior's skull.

Being an MSX game from 1984 the graphics are the definition of basic. A simple, jaunty, tune plays through out and is accompanied by the solitary sound of your cannon.

Control of the gunship is not so straight forward. At the start of the round you'll need to sucessfully take off. Pressing up or down causes the ship to continually float in that direction until you tap the opposite direction. Left and right increase the speed but be careful not to slow too much or you'll stall and crash.

Well, that's all I can tell you for now. If you have managed to get anywhere with it please let me know. Email address below.
