Super Spacefortress Macross (超時空要塞マクロス?) is a arcade game based on the film The Super Dimension Fortress Macross: Do You Remember Love? and was developed by NMK and published by Banpresto in 1992. The English-language edition was released by Fabtek on the same year.

GameplayEdit

Gameplay resembles many vertical shooters of the time, but was made accommodating to beginners by lowering the overall difficulty.

Player characters are locked to their respective sides: Player 1 is always the Red unit (Hikaru Ichijyo) and Player 2 is always the Blue unit (Maximilian Jenius). The game consists of seven stages, each with a boss at the end. After the stage 7 boss is defeated, a second run will instantly begin. The game will only be finished after completing two runs, with staff credits displayed afterward.

The VF-1S Valkyrie cannot transform freely. Power-ups marked with the letters of each form are required to change. Each form also grants different attack patterns. Picking up the same form power-up (ex: F while in Fighter mode) will increase rapid-fire rate. Attack-based items can be collected and stacked for up to 8 levels. The screen-clearing bomb, a staple of shooters, comes in the form of Reaction weaponry.

When the rare A (armor) power-up is obtained, the VF-1S becomes an Armored Battroid which can launch grenades with missiles. After taking a hit, the armor is purged. All form power-ups obtained while armored will become bonus point items instead.[1]

Notes & TriviaEdit

  • For some reason, the 1P unit (Hikaru) is slightly faster than the 2P unit (Max) despite the stats being opposite in the story canon.
  • The Fabtek release is bilingual. Language settings can be changed using the DIP switch.
  • The control detail translation in the English playing manual was overall haphazardly done, with numerous subject and syntax errors. The most notable is the translation of Player Unit (自機 ji-ki?), which was written as "self-plane".
  • Standard bonus point items are U.N. Spacy Medals, Minmay Dolls and Tuna Heads.
