Released: July 1987
Thus was Section Z born. They tried this out first in the arcades, and it was fun. For the NES port, they decided to expand on it a little bit and try some extra stuff out. It ended up mildly successful, but not for the reasons you’d think.
In the NES port of Section Z, the B button has your player shoot to the left and the A button shoots to the right, giving the game the feel of a twin-stick shooter. As in most shooters, you can pick up powerups that will increase your strength, give you a shield, etc. etc. The gameplay itself is pretty stock stuff for shooters of its time.
