Galactic Storm (c) 1992 Taito.


Taito F3 board


Released in March 1992.

Galactic Storm had good graphics and sound for its time. But Street Fighter 2 was released the same year and crushed everything. So, the game was a flop.

Some graphics (player design, final stage, and some others) were taken from "Master of Weapon".

Pony Canyon / Scitron released a very rare soundtrack album for this game (nouvelle vague - G.S.M TATIO 7 -).

Zuntata Record released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Galactic storm ~ Memory of eyes) on 02/02/1999.

Zuntata Record released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Retro game collection - shooting cluster 1) on 29/06/2011.


When a stage is cleared, you recover your shield.
