Overview

Super Real Darwin, or SRD: Super Real Darwin, is a vertical shoot 'em up and part of Data East's Darwin series. Its name comes from the way the player collects DNA from native wildlife and enemies, and this has the effect of changing the ship's appearance and firepower. Generally, the ship will get larger and have more elaborate firing rates as it collects more DNA, sacrificing the smaller hit box for greater damage output. Mechanically, the game is reminiscent of Namco's Xevious series and its imitators, in that the player can simultaneously attack air and ground targets with two different attack buttons, the latter having only a short range.

The game was released on Sega Mega Drive in Japan as Darwin 4081. The numeral comes from how the game is the fourth of Data East's shoot 'em ups to use the evolution mechanic, following Darwin 4078 (the original), Super Real Darwin ("4079"), and Act-Fancer: Cybernetick Hyper Weapon ("4080").

Super Real Darwin was later made part of Data East's compilation Data East Arcade Classics, released on Wii in 2010.
