Ranger-X is a classic 2D shoot-em-up action game developed by Now Production and sold by Sega for the Mega Drive/Genesis console. It was released in 1993, two years after the launch of the Genesis/MD in Japan.

The game places players into the robotic shoes of Ranger X, a cyborg super soldier who must save four populated planets from an alien invasion known as “The Invaders”. Players must blast through six levels of intense 2D shooting action while destroying hordes of enemies and collecting various powerups along the way. These powerups include weapons such as heat seeking missiles, spread cannons, atom bombs and more which give Ranger X an edge in battle. However, beware – each level also features numerous obstacles and traps designed to stop you in your tracks!

Graphically speaking, Ranger X looks great for its time thanks to its impressive color palette and well animated sprites. Every level is varied enough to keep gameplay fresh and challenging throughout. The soundtrack is also very good featuring some catchy techno tunes that add some energy to the shoot-em-up genre.

Gameplay wise, Ranger x plays much like most classic 2D shmups where players will need lightning fast reflexes and precision aiming skills to survive its crazy challenge. The controls are fairly responsive but sometimes feels too stiff when attempting to maneuver around tight corners or quick moving bosses on screen at once. The limited continues system can be especially punishing for novice players when facing off against powerful end bosses in the final stages of each level so newcomers might find it hard at first to finish the game on one life bar alone!

In conclusion, Ranger X is a great addition to any fan’s Mega Drive collection with its enjoyable action fueled shooting mayhem set across multiple exciting levels offering plenty of challenge for experts and newcomers alike. Its nice graphics, smooth animation and catchy soundtracks make players forget their troubles as they try their best to blast their way past aliens while saving innocent people from their clutches!
