Personal review
"Section Z" is a non-linear shoot'em up game. The game was originally released for the Famicom Disk System in Japan. But it took only two months to bring it to the US on cartridge (a Europe release followed way behind in 1989). After most levels (sections) you have the choice which section you want to do next. Sometimes you have to destroy generators in certain sections to open up warps to further sections. The player can switch between shooting to the right and to the left; a method Capcom would also use for the better known Side Arms: Hyper Dyne and Forgotten Worlds. Graphics and playability are generally ok and the game always runs smoothly. But with a total of 60 sections many levels have a repetitive feel to it. I'd prefer they would have created 5 unique and diverse levels instead of 60 rather similar ones.
