    Take command of Opa-Opa in this classic fantasy shooter.

    3D Fantasy Zone™ is the popular scrolling shooter, first released for the SEGA System 16 board in 1986, in which players control a sentient spaceship named Opa-Opa to fight bizarre invader enemies. The re-mastered version combines stereoscopic 3D visuals with a host of additional features to deliver cutting edge gameplay with a classic feel. Additional features include: adjustable difficulty settings, the ability to save your game for later review, inclusion of both the Japanese and Overseas versions of the original game, a Stage Select feature that allows players to save and resume progress mid-game, and adjustable difficulty settings. 3D Fantasy Zone™ also offers players an unlockable mode with new weaponry and gameplay and an original song called UPA-UPA.

    Take command of the spaceship Opa-Opa and blast your way through various fantastical levels as you try to take out all the enemy bases in each stage. Once you’ve destroyed the bases, you’ll have to beat the stage boss in order to move on to the next level. By using your guns and bombs wisely, you’ll be able to take down your enemies and explore each of the crazy environments in this side-scroller. You can also buy upgraded weapons for your ship by accessing the shop. Various SEGA games through the years have referenced the Opa-Opa—now you can play the game that started it all!

    Fantasy Zone

    Before you even pick up your control pads, youÂ’ll quickly see that this game is from another planet.

    Amorphic graphics. Day-glow colors. Even spaced-out music.

    You start out by building your own space ship. Pick out your own engine parts, lasers and defense mechanisms.

    Then take off for The Fantasy Zone. YouÂ’ll enter screen after screen of perilous worlds. As you try to bring peace to a troubled universe.
