This game is, apparently, based on an old black-and-white anime from back in the ´60s. It was reissued or remade or something in the 80s, and has been reissued or remade again just recently. It´s apparently been airing on Tokyo TV. The game itself is rather interesting. In each of the levels, you have assemble a three-cyborg squad. Your leader is pre-assigned. Each of the eight playable characters has their own specialty; Joe, for example, can move really quickly, while Francoise can see in the dark, so assembling a well-rounded squad is important. You´ll also find powerups during the levels that you can distribute to upgrade any of the eight cyborgs once you´ve completed the mission.
Hacking-wise, the game´s pretty simple to work with, and should be complete in the next few weeks. It´s done, courtesy of translator Chip, so have fun if it´s your thing!
