* DownerEnding - In the UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis version, we're told in narration we don't know if the heroes survived, and the scene of their car/spaceship coming to pick them up is removed. In the arcade version, they survive just fine. After the ending of both versions, though, we get a humorous "music video" afterwards.

* DownerEnding - In the UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis version, we're told in narration we don't know if the heroes survived, and the scene of their car/spaceship coming to pick them up is removed. However, the narration did imply their survival, stating that they will return in case there is another force that threatens peace on Earth. In the arcade version, they survive just fine. After the ending of both versions, though, we get a humorous "music video" afterwards.


* ShoutOut
** Nobody noticed that Scooter is a little like with [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam RX-78]].
** Probably because he looks a lot more like [[Franchise/StarWars C-3PO]].
** Or a [[Series/BattlestarGalacticaClassic Cylon]].

A Creator/{{Sega}} arcade game released in 1990 that's a cross between a BeatEmUp, a ShootEmUp and a RailShooter, depending on the section of the level. It was developed by Team Shinobi and essentially it's ''GoldenAxe'' [[RecycledInSpace remade in a sci-fi setting]]. It was ported to the UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis, [[UsefulNotes/SegaMasterSystem Master System]] and various home computer formats.

* WombLevel - Comes out of nowhere. Where'd that guy come from who just eats you with his alien tongue in a split-second? The inside of his body has multiple paths in the arcade version, but is much more maze-like in the SegaGenesis version, complete with a map that shows up if you pause. It ends with you destroying its brain.

* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere - Well, it's giant, it flies, and it promptly eats you the instant you see it before taking off into space.


For the most part, you run through levels and fight grotesque and creepy looking aliens with moves that include punches, kicks, and shooting them close-range. There are moments where you switch to a side-scrolling shooter where you run forward automatically, and have to shoot enemies as you go. All levels also contain at least one segment which switches to a first-person view where you move a crosshairs around to aim your gun and shoot enemies. The environment itself is destructable in these segmants.

* SelfDestructMechanism: Scooter's SmartBomb has him blow himself up except for his head, which deals huge damage to all enemies... then a headless new body comes in to pick it back up.
