This is one of my favorite 3D space combat simulation games of all time. It's often seen as a 3D rail shooter very similar to games like the SNES game Star Fox and Silpheed for the Sega CD. The game moves very fast. There are 2 different versions of this game, one called Solar Assault and Solar Assault-Revised. The first version has only 5 levels. The second version (Revised) has an additional level which is the lava stage bringing the level to a total of 6 levels. The USA version uses the revised version of the game. This is the only non-working game in MAME that's actually playable. But the sound emulation is not perfect. Music does not always occur in some levels like it was suppose to in the arcade version so I had to die and lose all lives to loop back to beginning of that level and sometimes more than once to get the music occur so you see a jump in the score especially in the 6th level (last stage). Now, towards the end of the 5th level, I had to use a hack because there's a bug in that level that prevented me from completing the game causing MAME to crash so I had no choice to use it and save states is not supported for this game, which, does not work at all, and no rerecording was supported. I stopped using the hack towards of the end of the last level since the bug did not happen then. The game was released exclusively to the arcades. Never ported to the consoles. Even when you do a playthrough of al ships, the ending is the same for all. Very good use of 3-D polygonal graphics for its time which runs on Konami's GTI hardware.
