Gunstar Heroes is a classic platform shooter developed by Treasure in 1993. The game differentiates itself from other games of the genre, such as Metal Slug or Contra, with its unique weapons system which allows the four main starting weapons to be combined to create a total of 14 weapons. Players can also execute a variety of melee attacks. Most stages have several bosses, which can take up half the screen or be your size. Slowdown rarely occurs despite the fact the action rarely stops for a moment. The game has been well-received by fans and critics alike.
