A cooperative Run and Gun game released on the [[UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis Sega Mega Drive/Genesis]] by Creator/{{Treasure}} in 1993. Sometime in the future, somewhere not to far from where you live, Gunstars [[ThemeNaming Red and Blue]] are twins from a family of protectors of the planet Gunstar 9 (G-9), attempting to stop a dictator named Colonel Red from collecting the four famous Mystical Gems in order to reactivate a planet-sucking alien robot known as Golden Silver in an effort to reshape the world.

That being, you (partner optional, but highly recommended) take control of either one of Red and Blue and traverse several levels of increasing chaos and explosions. What really adds to the run and gun nature of it, though, is how the two playable characters differ in action, as well as the clever weapons system. Technically, Red is ''Free Shot'' - meaning you can run ''and'' gun at the same time with the primary drawback being that it's a bit harder to aim in a specific direction (since... you move when you fire); counter to this, Blue is ''Fixed Shot,'' so he ''can't'' move and fire but is capable of firing in all 8 directions. This doesn't seem like much of a difference at first, but when you add that certain weapon combos work better for certain types - it allows for a wide variance in playstyles.

The original game was first made available post-Genesis on the PS2 Sega Ages series (with less slowdown) which...alas...is a fine example of NoExportForYou. However, it is now available for download on {{Virtual Console}}, Xbox Live, PSN, [[{{IOS}} iOS]] and UsefulNotes/{{Steam}}, as well as the ''3D Classics'' line of remasterings on UsefulNotes/Nintendo3DS.

* CaptainErsatz: Pink and her minions are more than slightly reminiscent of the Grandis Gang from NadiaTheSecretOfBlueWater. Even the jewel you get for beating them looks like the Blue Water.

* LawyerFriendlyCameo / ShoutOut: Pink, Kain and Kotaro are awfully similar to [[NadiaTheSecretOfBlueWater Grandis Granva, Samson and Hanson]], Smash Daisaku looks a lot like [[StreetFighter Bison with Dhalsim's stretchiness]], and one of the Phantoms dressed in red looks like a SuperDeformed [[VideoGame/{{Crusader}} Silencer]].

* TerribleTrio: Pink and her flunkies Kain and Kotaro. Their [[BeautyBrainsAndBrawn physiques]], [[CoolShades shades]], and [[TankGoodness token vehicle]] named after the leader are a [[NadiaTheSecretOfBlueWater rather obvious]] LawyerFriendlyCameo.

* NotWhatItSoundsLike: Most people think the "seven" in "Seven Force" refers to how many forms it has; it actually references the SNES' Mode 7, since Seven Force is designed to showcase Mode 7-style rotation on the Genesis / Mega Drive. This is why the Seven Force in ''AlienSoldier'' only has six forms.
