Another game that was officially available only on the MSX2. Humbly subtitled "The Micro Xevious", it is based on the arcade version, but of course it can't do much to imitate that game's qualities. Like most 8-bit computer ports it got rearranged and stripped of some elements. The technical execution is less than stellar this time, and there's a fair share of glitches. Worst is the scrolling, which goes stepwise like in Knightmare or The Three Dragon Story. However, while it worked when the player controlled a knight by foot, it just feels wrong in a futuristic shooter, where the plane is supposed to be moving fluently. Two kinds of background music can be selected. "Original" is the same terrible 1-second loop from the arcade version, but "Special" is a neat little melody.
