About Star Soldier: Star Soldier is a family of vertically-scrolling shooter video games that have appeared on numerous video game consoles over the years. Some of the best-known versions in the US include Star Soldier (NES), Super Star Solider (TG16), and Soldier Blade (TG16), all of which have been re-released on the Nintendo Wii™ Virtual Console. The gameplay follows traditional shooters, in which you pilot your craft against overwhelming alien odds. From a top-down perspective, you fly from the bottom of the screen towards the top, shooting any ship or structure that gets in your way. As you progress, you can collect power-ups to increase your weapon or shield strength. Now go get in your Caesar fighter craft and save Earth from the Core Brain!
