Enter into the deep space world of Solar Assault, where thrilling action and adventure awaits!
As a part of the popular Gradius series, Solar Assault brought the franchise into 3D. Chose from the BP-592A Vic Viper, the LS-379G Lord British or the WC-672H Alpina as you take the fight to villainous aliens. Solar Assault plays similar to games like Star Fox in that you see the action from behind your spaceship. Using a modified version of the Gradius power-up system, players can select Auto or Manual configuration, the latter allowing a user to design exactly how they want their power-ups to work.
This model is for the Deluxe version of the game, which uses a 50″ projection screen. A standard sit-down 29″ CRT version was also produced.
