Trivia

81560

If you continue the game for long enough without dying, certain enemies will release a pickup that gives an increasing amount of points each time one is collected. The highest value possible is 81560, which it not an arbitrary number; reading "8156" a certain way in Japanese would result in E-I-KO-MU, or "Aicom", which is the name of the Sammy studio that developed the game. This number also turns up in Blazing Star, another shooter produced by Aicom.

Saturn version

A SEGA Saturn version was in development, but was ultimately cancelled.
