- TRIVIA -


This game is known as "Wolf Fang" in Japan.


One of the cool powerups in this game are tiny soldiers that jump on to the hull of your battle suit and fight alongside with you.


When your battle suit runs out of energy or is destroyed by the enemy, you will eject out of the cockpit and continue fighting.


Pony Canyon / Scitron released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Wolf Fang, Tumble Pop - PCCB-00084) on 21/03/1992.


- TIPS AND TRICKS -


* Special mode (Wolf Fang only) : at the title screen, after inserting a credit, hold 1P Button 1 (Shot) + 1P Button 3 (Sub Weapon) then press START.


* Watch your life meter! Your battle suit will self destruct once the life meter runs out. Pick up 'life' cells to recharge your suit. When the 'charge-meter' is at full, you can take a super shot at the enemy with your sub-weapon. Pick up 'charge' cells to fully charge your sub-weapon. Hold down the fire button to change attack direction. Joystick down + Jump button will initiate a charge attack.
