You may have seen Stella Assault on the 32x. This is a much upgraded version for the Sega Saturn released only in Japan in 1998. The game annoyingly has a limited viewport wasting most of the screen resolution but I guess this was done to keep the framerate up.

Its a shame this did not get localised and released in the west as the game is pretty good as far as space combat games go. Like the first game you get the choice of two ships. This time they are not so different as they both have extra shields and both have limited energy that is replenished every level. The difference lies in there weaponry. In a previous longplay, I used the Feather02 ship. For this one I use Feather01 which has stronger shields and it needs them as your weapons cannot shoot down enemy fire.

The game itself is fairly easy with only the big battleships and bosses to worry about as the enemy fighters don't do anything meaningful although they do tend to try and fly directly into you which will hurt.
