ESWAT: City Under Siege
From Sega Retro
ESWAT: City Under Siege is a Sega Mega Drive action game released for the console in 1990. It is a reimagining of the 1989 arcade game Cyber Police ESWAT. The Sega Master System version of ESWAT: Cyber Police calls itself ESWAT: City Under Siege on its title screen, but is unrelated to this Mega Drive game.
In the game the player, a police officer (named Duke Oda in Japanese versions), navigates through the crime-ridden Liberty City, shooting and capturing criminals. He is eventually accepted to the Police Department's top unit, E-SWAT (Enhanced Special Weapons and Tactics) and given a powered exoskeleton to fight against powerful crime bosses who threated the city. Ultimate goal of the game is to apprehend "Balzar" a mad scientist (Arcade and Master System), or destroy E.Y.E., a super computer (Mega Drive).
The city in which the game takes place is named "Liberty"
E-SWAT is run'n gun type of game which player must elimiate threats approaching from either part of the screen. After completing a few missions, player is accepted to the elite E-SWAT unit and given a power suit and special weapons. A boss is waiting at the end of each stage.
Mega Drive version is a different from Arcade and Master System versions with more platforming sequences added in. There are not special weapons but player can equip more weapons. Player can also use a jetpack to fly around as long as suit has power.
