Gunstar Heroes (1993) is widely considered to be one of the best action games on the Sega Genesis — ironically, being commercially unsuccessful due to poor promotion. It features a variety of melee attacks, as well as 4 basic weapons which you can combine in pairs (making a total of 14 combinations) — all densely packed in a swift and explosion-heavy gameplay spanning over seven uniquely designed stages.

This single-player run by Jackic plays through Normal difficulty. Among other changes, in Normal difficulty, weapons do more damage, and the boss of the second stage has fewer forms. For a two-player run on Expert difficulty, see this movie.

Please read the welcome page if you haven't already done so. It explains the rules and methods that apply to all of these movies, particularly the use of savestates and frame advance. Also refer to our Glossary to understand terms we use, such as TAS or other unfamiliar terms.
