Giga Wing is a vertically scrolling shooter developed by Takumi
and published by Capcom on CPS-2 Hardware
Giga Wing takes place during a fictional war within a steampunk setting.
The player controls one of four different futuristic aircraft and must destroy enemy aircraft,
tanks, ships, and buildings using both guns and missiles mounted on the aircraft and a
limited supply of bombs which damage or destroy all enemies on-screen when used.
The game is based on the player(s) trying to destroy a medallion which possesses great power.
The player chooses one of four different craft and shoots through seven stages.
Each level ends with a boss fight and each game begins with three lives.
The option to continue is given when all lives are lost, although the seventh stage is only
accessible if the player does not use any continues. Each ship in Giga Wing has three attacks:
a normal shot (spray of bullets), reflect (reflects enemy bullets and damages enemy ships
in the field), and force bomb (nullifies all on-screen bullets).
Players can increase their score multiplier by collecting medals dropped by defeated ships.
