Note

This is the most Arcade like (before the SS/PS version), most advanced and possibly the best version of GRADIUS. As I mean, the PCE version is even better than the original Arcade one. The plane is slim, the shot is smooth, the screen is beautiful and the background music is cool. It even includes an additional/special stage which didn't appeared in the AC version. It is the 5th stage which I call it "Bone & Sand". (^^)

So bad that I forgot to capture the screen shots of this game when I do preparation of creating/updating this site.(*_*) It is quite difficult for me to connect the AV cable to my computer, because my home is small and have so many things placed around... . The main platforms setup now to run usually are the Saturn, Playstation, Dreamcast and Playstation 2.
