Prehistoric Isle 2 is a 2D side scrolling shooter with dinosaurs. It's a continuation of the SNK shooter franchise started with PREHISTORIC ISLE in 1930. The player controls a helicopter and must shoot dangerous dinosaurs in a city. The game is a pretty standard, dynamic shmup - the player flies forward, kills various enemies, gathers power-ups, and sometimes, rescues people. The game uses a similar pre-rendered graphic style to Pulstar.
