GORDESS which was moving in the darkness of the cosmos for the purpose of
mass murder and plunder. Everyone gave up fighting against GORDESS because of
its awesome power. One day a brave soldier riding a space patroller challenged
GORDESS to fight. People called this space patroller "FINAL STAR", wishing to
be saved. You must bring an end to the murders which have been committed for
the past 2,000 years.

best for him to near an enemy sideways and upon light contact, shoot a bullet
at the enemy. the destruction of an enemy beside FINAT STAR is feasible. This
technique is effective to attack OBSESS.

destruction of LARIOS by shooting eight bullets allows you to get the bonus of
50,000 points. In this case, you must shoot bullets after the center of the
