Space Harrier is weird but original. It's is a 3D game where you control a man with a jet-pack flying into the screen. Objects scale as they approach you. This was a pretty popular game in the late 80's when the graphics were still impressive. Your man flies a few feet above the ground, shooting everything in sight while dodging missiles and other objects. The bizarre adversaries you encounter run the gamut from stone heads to UFOs to giant mushrooms to dragons. There are bosses at the end of each stage. It's a hectic shooter, and objects like pillars approach very fast and can be tough to avoid. Space Harrier looks and feels very similar to Afterburner, and the gameplay is just as shallow. In fairness, it's pretty close to the arcade version, so if you liked that, you'll like this.
