To tell you the truth, although I did play on the SNES briefly, it was not my most preferred of gaming systems. It wasn't until much later in my years that I finally had the chance to play all the fantastic games it had to offer, both English and even in Japanese. Once such shoot 'em up game ' Super Aleste (BS) ' published by Toho and part of the Aleste series by Compile, was recently given the translation treatment by tettsui77 and is now fully English translated as version 1.0.

It's a brilliant shooter. There might be better STGs on the Megadrive from the point of view of gameplay, but technically I doubt there is an MD STG that can touch this. This game is sprite city with no slowdown and it features the best use EVER of mode 7 - level 2 - which consists of a huge space platform that you initially approach from a distance and then when you get up close you make several passes over it - absolutely brilliant.

I have the PAL version CIB and the JPN version cart only such is my love of this game. Loads of levels, a brilliant power up and rich weapon scheme. Lots of difficulty levels too - including an arrange mode and a suicide bullet mode. It also has a "short" mode consisting of a couple of levels for a quick score attack session. Lovely.
