Star Parodier is a "cute-'em-up" top-down shooter that lampoons the Star Soldier games by replacing most sci-fi elements with humorous graphics and sounds.

The player can choose to play the game as the starfighter from the Star Soldier games, a flying Bomberman and a giant, laser-toting PC-Engine, each featuring their own weapon combinations which can be swapped at will in-game by collecting the right power-ups. The game features fully-animated cutscenes and CD music.

Star Parodier TurboGrafx CD The dungeon level is very atmospheric and full of traps
Star Parodier TurboGrafx CD So many cannons, but I found a safe passage...
Star Parodier TurboGrafx CD This boss is a snake with three heads of different colors... and naturally different attacks

The game was slated for a US release under the title Fantasy Star Soldier but while mostly completed, the localized release never saw the light of day.
