Wings of Wor or GYNOUG as it was known in the rest of the world Was a side scrolling shoot em up where the screen scrolled from left to right while you collected various powerups to upgrade your weapons.
The game has a very distinct artstyle compared to other games in the genre opting for a more twisted, biological look instead of the standard apaceships and aliens, some of the enemies being hige bony creatures with extending necks and various other semi mechanical creatures in the vein of H.R geiger . There were six stages ranging from caves and gothic church-like structures to completely mechanical and twisted tunnels seemingly inside the body of some creature. The game relies heavily on browns and greys in its colour palette to create its mood.
The character you control is an angel called wor with feathered wings, his weapons are mostly unimpressive but functional. The three types of shot you are able to use include a concentrated fire, a triangular fire and a dual shot where you would be able to fire both in front and behind.
You would be required to fight a mid-level boss and an end of level boss at the end of all the very tough levels, There were no save points and you would only be allowed to continue from the point you died if lives were remaining. The game despite only having 6 levels is like many japanese shmups and is incredibly tough.
there were four difficulty levels, those included
Easy, Medium, Hard and Hyper
