As Gunstar twin Red or Blue, defeat Colonel Red’s army to keep him from activating the Mystical Gems and destroying planet Gunstar 9…

As protectors of the planet Gunstar 9, the Gunstar Red and Blue twins must defeat Colonel Red and the Emperor before the evildoers can bring robot Golden Silver to life and destroy their beloved galactic home. Guided by Professor White and their sister Yellow, the twins race around in mining carts and space ships blasting at the enemy onslaught through seven chaos-filled stages. This means WAR!

As you run through the explosive side-scrolling levels, point and fire from any angle, even backwards over your head.

Carrying two to four weapon types, unleash 10 different attacks on enemies and over 25 Boss battles.

Take on the unfriendly fire of Colonel Red’s army with a friend (Bluetooth required – available only for devices above iPhone 4 and iPad 1)

Customer Reviews


The iOS version of this game is so underrated that it's stupid. The real version of this game is so minuscule u would have to know a sega fanboy to even really know what it is. First of all to people who don't know what this games is it is a 2-D multiplayer shootem up complete with iconic, interesting, and entertaining boss fights and levels. The game has a solid amount of replay ability, with 5 huge levels and 4 difficultys. Now for the controls. They were ok but probably the best they can possibly be. I reccomend using the accelerometer.

Dont get me wrong this game is VERY hard. Even on easy. But luckily the iOS version of this game includes saving so unlike in the original u want have to start over as soon as u turn the game off.

This game is very good and I suggest that u pick it up while it is .99

I can reccomend this game to fans of the original, platforming fans and hardcore gamers. This game again, is difficult and not for the faint of heart. Prepare to play a game with, strategy, action, and some frustrating moments. But do not worry the game is good enough to make up for that

Great game is great

Simply amazing. Just as it was on the genesis. If you missed out back in the day, nows your chance to catch up with this classic. Very responsive with no slow down at all. Well worth the download!

Just like I remember

Back in the day I played this game a lot! And this time around it was just as fun, and adapted as well as it could be for IOS.
