In the first-person 3D space shooter Solar Assault, you play as Vic Viper with the mission of shooting enemy spaceships and other intergalactic enemies.
Solar Assault is a spin-off of the long running Gradius series. This title retains most of the gameplay characteristics of its 2D counterparts including the same enemies, protagonists, the selection bar power-up system and familiar settings. The player takes control of one of three spaceships, battling enemies and bosses in settings like underground tunnels, planet surfaces, and space fields.
The machine came in a 29" SD model, a 50" DX model, and a 'virtual gear type' - a large enclosed motion simulator which tilts, using pneumatics, according to the action occurring on-screen.
