Best known for its Neo Geo sequel, Alpha Mission was a mid-1980s space shooter that is indistinguishable from Xevious. You pilot the fighters ship SYD, going head-to-head against a deadly fleet of the Seven Stars Alliance. But don't get too excited, because Alpha Mission largely follows the same generic tropes you've come to expect from all 1980s space shooters. You pick up items to upgrade your weapon, speed up your craft and whatnot, all while dodging incoming bullets. You've played this game before ... even if you haven't played this game before.

Much like Namco's Xevious, Alpha Mission forces players to worry about both what's in the sky and what's on the ground. One button is linked to a regular stream of bullets (good for taking out flying ships), while the other button fires missiles down towards the surface. That not very original gameplay mechanic fits in perfectly with the rest of Alpha Mission. The level designs are standard fare and the boss battles are nothing to write home about. There's nothing outright offensive about this SNK shooter, though you can certainly do a lot better.
