Video Game / Aleste

Go To
A series of Vertical Scrolling Shooter games made by Compile. Most of the Aleste games received North American and/or European release but were renamed to hide the connection.

Needs Wiki Magic Love.


Tropes present in the series:

  • Defeat Equals Explosion: As usual for the genre, defeated enemies immediately turn into neat fireballs.
  • Flash of Pain: The protagonist's spacecraft often flashes white when hit.
  • Spread Shot: Present from the original Aleste onwards, where some enemies fired a dozen-bullet spread that eventually reached both edges of the screen.
