The vertically-scrolling shooter was originally released into the arcades by Capcom in 1985. Versions for the 8-bit and 16-bit computers soon followed, although these were released by a range of different publishers. The most popular home computer version was published by Elite for the C64, ZX Spectrum, Amstrad CPC, Atari ST and Commodore Amiga. The C64 version featured an excellent track by the computer music legend Rob Hubbard.
An Atari 8-bit version was released in 1989 by the Utah based developer Sculptured Software, but a version for the XE game system by Atari Corporation was never released.
