Game Tengoku (ゲーム天国) is an arcade vertical scrolling shoot-'em-up by Jaleco that was ported to the Sega Saturn in Japan in 1997.

Gameplay

Game Tengoku is a Jaleco equivalent to Parodius, featuring characters and settings from older Jaleco games, plus parodies of late-90s Japanese culture. It also makes references to non-Jaleco games, including, for example, Sega's Head-On.

The Saturn port features an "arrange mode" with two new stages. It is also compatible with vertically-orientated screens.
