Dogyuun (ドギューン!!) - Toaplan 1992
Manic shooter from Toaplan, extremely challenging and addicting. One of the least known of the Toaplan shoot'em ups but one of the best. Do you have good eye hand coordination? Give Dogyuun a shot!

The ONE, the ONLY, the ULTRA-COLLECTABLE... ATTACK FROM MARS! This game was produced in 1995 by Bally/Williams, manufacturer of the greatest and most collectable modern pinball machines on the planet. This is one of the MOST collectable and sought after games of the 90's. For most modern-day collectors, this machine is in their TOP TWO games to own list! If you have never played an Attack From Mars, you are in for a sight, sound and gameplay FEAST. This game is tough to beat with it's ultra-fast play and excellent theme. Who doesn't want to defend the planet Earth from nasty Martians? I know I do! This game will BLOW YOUR MIND! It's one of my personal favorites!
You'll love hearing the Martian threats, military commands and ethnic character voices from around the globe as you do battle to save the planet! This game has a fast and wicked style of play with three different ramps, loads of standing targets, rollovers, pop-bumpers, slingshots, VIBRATING Martians and best of all, the Martian Mothership in the center. It is guarded by stationary targets that drop down via a motorized mechanism to reveal the hidden center drop target that must be struck an increasing number of times as you move through the defending countries. Each hit that the Martian mothership takes will cause a shaking vibration on the ship and a simulated explosion STROBE LAMP flash! This game is full of so many different game modes, multiball modes and video modes that your head will spin! The thumping music track will put you in the mood to kick some Martian butt! Can you survive long enough to "Rule The Universe"?! The game is extremely easy to understand, but incredibly difficult to master! This Bally MASTERPIECE goes great in any home gameroom! Your neighbors will never leave!. -PINALLCLINIC
