Several elements make this shooter stand out from the pack. First, the perspective alternates between a behind-the-back perspective (which plays like the more conventional top-looking-down perspective) and a side view (a la ''VideoGame/{{Gradius}}'' or ''VideoGame/RType''). The closest comparison to the behind-the-back look might be the original ''VideoGame/{{F-Zero}}''.

* SubsystemDamage: Getting hit will only damage whatever weapon module you currently have equipped, disabling it until you lose a life or finish the stage. Your ship will only be destroyed if you receive CollisionDamage or if you only have the damaged subweapon selected.

Second, there are no power-ups. Before the level begins, you pick three weapons from a list of weapons that grows with each level. These weapons are either upgrades for your main gun, or for your missiles (of which you have infinite). The weapon that is not enhanced is comparatively weak. You can switch between the three at will, however, if you get hit by enemy fire, you [[BreakableWeapons lose the weapon]] you are using for the rest of the life, replaced by the regular weapon. In theory, you have four HitPoints, though it is debatable how far you could go with only the weak weapon.

* AllThereInTheManual: While it's known as Corliss in the English version, the homeworld you see destroyed in the intro was named Mother. Only knowable through the soundtrack, the third level's song is titled "Mother" suggesting it is the same planet being being colonized by enemy machines after the holocaust. The credits song that wraps up the conflict is "Return to Mother," suggesting it will one day recover.
