Description

Originating in the arcades, Side Arms is a horizontally scrolling shoot ‘em up in which you control Lieutenant Henry (a second player can control Sergeant Sanders in some versions), armed with crude weaponry and protective jump-suits. They must save the earth from the mercenary invaders of Bozon. You must first reach Bozon’s territories, then wipe out its forces hidden in caverns and lurking in underground seas, before destroying the main invasion ship. Lots of extra weapons can be picked up, often with similar tokens to those in 1943 and some other Capcom titles. Most weapons can be shot either to the left or the right, giving you more range to launch attacks.

They look like the heads of tapeworms, don't they? These ones are inoffensive.
Side Arms Hyper Dyne Arcade Level 4:.<br>
That device resembling a mosquito will release a pack of missiles. The other structures are the final image of the Spectrum version and they were, I bet, inspired by Dogū statuettes.

This armoured mech-type vehicle has just received the last deadly bolt. It's about to get destroyed.
