Gunblade NY: Special Air Assault Force is a 3D on-rails fixed-gun shooter developed by Sega's AM3 division and released by Sega for arcades (using their Sega Model 2 hardware) in 1995.
A light-gun shooter using mounted machine gun controls, Gunblade NY takes place in near-future 2005, where New York is invaded by a mysterious group of terrorists. Up to two players take control of gunners of the Special Air Assault Force (SAAF), as they make use of mounted machine guns on either side of a special attack helicopter.
It was later bundled with LA Machineguns as part of the 2010 Wii compilation Arcade Hits Pack: Gunblade NY & LA Machineguns. Both ports make use of the Wii's motion controls and support the Wii Zapper peripheral.
When starting the game, players can choose from 3 missions (one of which is locked out when both players are choosing).
Regain the UN H.Q. (EASY)
- Times Square
- Midtown Manhattan
- United Nations H.Q. (known in some versions as UN Headquarters)
- Cargo Ship (known in some versions as Freighter)
Big Apple Liberation (HARD)
- Brooklyn Bridge
- Battery Park
- Grand Army Plaza
- Midtown Night (known in some version as Midtown (Night))
Score Attack Remix
A special mission where a solo player is given a total of 300 seconds across four stages on one credit. Unlike the other missions, players are now scored on numerous factors (including hostiles defeated, kill combos, and stage completion).
Stage progression is based on the player's performance. Stages from both main missions appear (with the exception of Brooklyn Bridge).
