Soulstar for the Sega CD/Mega CD is a 3D shoot-'em up that combines several different types of gameplay into one game. Some levels in this game are on a fixed path, similar to Space Harrier or Star Fox. Other levels allow your space craft to hover freely around a 3D environment, and in other levels your craft transforms into a walker robot for close-up attacks.

In Soulstar the player takes the role of a warrior pilot known as Bryk Hammelt. It is your mission to prevent an alien aggressor known as the Myrkoids from draining the Soulstar system of its energy resources.


Soulstar SEGA CD Level 2 is where you actually select the game difficulty.
