Space Harrier is a shooter in 3D optics by Elite Systems from 1987 and a port of the arcade machine with the same name by Sega. The arcade game developed by Japanese game designer Yū Suzuki caused quite a stir with its sophisticated graphics and the spectacular cockpit, which was driven by a hydraulic engine and reacted to the movements of the joystick with a movement of the seat.
The player steers "Harri", the last of the heroic Space Harrier's, through the fight against the hordes of the demon Absymbel, who has attacked the peaceful Dragonland. An old artefact, which combines the effectiveness of a jumpjet and a laser canon, gives Harri the ability to fly and enough fire power to reconquer the altogether twelve section of Dragonland.
In each section you need to either avoid all obstacles and enemies or eliminate them with permanent fire and at the end defeat an end boss that blocks the path to the next section.
