Gun Frontier

March 18, 2021

For Arcade Classics, we highlight titles that exemplify the type of “just one more quarter” gameplay found in the classic arcades of a bygone era. These Arcade Classics have found a new home on the Legends Arcade Family of products, where their timeless, approachable gameplay can be enjoyed by new generations of players.

This week’s Arcade Classics highlights the great TAITO arcade game, Gun Frontier.

Gun Frontier, which first hit arcades in 1990, is a high-intensity vertically scrolling shooter. At the beginning of the 22nd century, humankind was entering the era of space exploration. The discovery of Space Gold called for a gold rush, and people all joined the immigrants. Meanwhile, the wild lizard, a space pirate who smelled gold, attacked and killed many inhabitants. In 2120 AD, two revolver-type fighters landed in the desolate Gloria sky to deal with the threat.
