''Forgotten Worlds'' (''Lost Worlds'' [[MarketBasedTitle in Japan]]) is a sci fi-themed [[ShootEmUp shoot'em ]] by {{Capcom}} released for the arcades in 1988. Notable for being the first game to run on the CP System arcade hardware, which powered the majority of Capcom's subsequent arcade releases for the next few years. ''Forgotten Worlds'' makes use of a rotating control scheme known as "Roll Switch" that allows aiming at eighteen possible directions, something of a novelty back then, as well as a system of supporting satellites that adds a large variety of different weapon options (from {{reflecting laser}}s to napalm bombs). These weapons are purchasable from shops that literally raise from the ground/walls, attended by a girl named Sylphie, using [[FictionalCurrency zennies]] collected from defeated {{mooks}}.

Set in the 29th Century, the story starts with a GalacticConqueror and GodOfEvil and Destruction known as BIOS, who has created eight evil gods and went on conquering and destroying worlds, turning them into husks of their former selves. Eventually, Earth is targeted and suffers the same fate, becoming a warren wasteland known as the "Dust World". The few humans that have survived decide to fight back by raising and training two children into {{badass}} {{super soldier}}s. This works wonders, and the two now adult [[NoNameGiven Nameless]] Soldiers embark on a quest to defeat BIOS.

The game was quite succesful back then, getting ported to many consoles and home computers of the time, including the SegaGenesis (which has to cut a few things, like voiceovers and 2 stages) and later the TurboGrafxCD (which removed 2 player co-op, but included a bunch of bonus features). The main characters were also brought somewhat reguarly in several of the company's {{Crossover}} games.
