M.U.S.H.A. (Sega Genesis) game description
M.U.S.H.A. is a vertically scrolling shooter in which the player controls a large flying mecha. The gameplay conventions are largely retained from earlier Aleste titles. The player has a main gun that can be powered up by collecting “Power Chips”.
A spin-off from the Aleste series by Compile, Musha Aleste takes the same top-down shooter mechanics of its predecessors but stages the action in a bizarre universe that merges traditional Japanese lore with sci-fi mecha action.
Instead of commanding a ship, you will actually step into the cockpit of a ninja-styled mecha as you fight through the many levels in the game, with several option satellites that can be configured to use different formations.
There are also three different special weapons that can be picked up: piercing lasers, fire-based explosives and rotating shields. They can be upgraded if the same weapon is picked up that is currently being used. If hit while a special weapon is equipped, the player will lose the special weapon but remain alive. Getting hit without a special weapon will result in losing a life.
For every three Power Chips collected, the player obtains a drone similar to those in the Gradius series, but are called options. Only two options can be utilized at any one moment; extras are stored. These drones can be set to one of six attack modes, such as aiming forward, behind, or rotating around the player.
