Video Game: The Guardian Legend
The Guardian Legend (known as Guardic Gaiden in Japan) was a hybrid Action Game and Shoot Em Up created by Compile for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Released around 1988, it's likely forgotten by all but the most hardcore of gamers, but this game did a great job of blending the two genres.

The game is about a female robot, codenamed "the Guardian", who is commissioned with stopping an alien-infested planet called Naju from crashing into Earth and killing everyone. To do this, she must set off ten strategically-placed explosives within the corridors (by transforming into a spaceship and flying through them) and defeat the bosses within.
