Under Defeat is a top-down vertical shooter originally released for Naomi arcade machines, and later ported to Dreamcast as one of the last games to be released on the system. The game is set in an alternative universe's World War II, where the players pilot the newest machines of war - prototype helicopters. While the gameplay is fairly typical for a vertical shooters, the game innovates by allowing players to tilt their vehicles slightly left and right, changing the angle of their fire.


Under Defeat Dreamcast Ufff - I die! The game noticeably pauses every time you get hit as if to demonstrate what hit you.
Under Defeat Dreamcast This guy is toast!
Under Defeat Dreamcast End of level 1 screen. Just as a sidenote - there is really no story of any kind behind this game.
Under Defeat Dreamcast A lot of the ground structures are fully destructible.
