Just a heads up, this description is based on the memories I have of the game from eleven years ago, when I was eight years old.. So some of them may infact be inaccurate, or vague, or right on the money.. This is a long shot, I have asked on forums before with no luck at all. Anyways.. I'll try to give as much detail as I can, however if some detail is incorrect for the game you think it might be, please dont hesitate to shoot out any ideas as Im really grasping at straws here. I remember it was definatly japanese themed, I'm thinking the title was not english but I could be wrong. It was an.. upscroller?... a la 1942 I guess, except you had a party of characters that you would pick before the level and you would pick their formation. I kind of remember being able to shop for items at the end of each level. I dont remember much more about the gameplay.. One of the characters had a coolie hat. It was for the original gameboy. I picked it up randomly at microplay and have never heard or seen anyting of it since. Any help trying to figure out what this game is would be extremely appreciated, I remember loving it and would be extatic to try it once more. If you have any questions that might help you figure out the game, by all means.... Thanks for taking the time to read my long winded description, everyone, cheers!
