Silkworm / SWIV series

Group Description

Interpretations of Tecmo's original land/air coin-op shooter Silkworm, these conversions eventually covered both horizontally- and vertically-scrolling "if it moves, shoot it!" territory, with players controlling helicopters or heavily-armed jeeps. Later games shucked the oblique "Silkworm" name in favour of restyling the SW for Special Weapons (Interdiction Vehicles).
