Title screen
Main menu. Not much of a choice, huh.
Mission briefing.
You are to proceed to planet Redeye.
And destroy this reactor core.
Launching off the mothership... The gameplay portion of the game uses Sega CD's lowest resolution - 256x224
And for a good reason - the game uses high quality video, a combination of shaded and unfilled vectors, and scaling sprites.
All small ships are drawn using unfilled vectors.
After trashing your forces the enemy warps back to base - you follow.
It's much easier to spot enemy on Sega CD, as destructible asteroids are readily visible... not that it helps.
An unfilled enemy up-close and personal.
The game constantly marks commentates your progress with cool radio chatter.
