Advanced Busterhawk Gley Lancer, commonly known as Gleylancer (グレイランサー), is a Sega Mega Drive shoot-'em-up game developed by NCS and published by Masaya. Originally released in Japan in July 1992, it was later ported to the Nintendo Wii's Virtual Console in 2008 by developer M2, and received a reprint in June 2019 by publisher Columbus Circle.
The name "Gley Lancer" is a misromanization of "grey lancer".
Lucia is the 16-year-old daughter of a fighter pilot who disappears while fighting a war between humans and aliens in 2025. He was captured by aliens whom he had captured earlier who had the ability to teleport. Lucia hijacks the prototype fighter CSH-01-XA "Gley Lancer" to save him.
The Gley Lancer is a standalone ship that can only shoot straight ahead by pressing (which can be held down for rapidfire) and change its speed with . However, up to two Mover sub-ships can be attached to the main ship and fire in any direction with the main ship. Before starting a game, the player is given a choice of how to maneuver Movers around the ship and aim them; the button performs some related action which is detailed in the selection screen.
In 2006, the game received an English translation by fan translation group M.I.J.E.T.
The game received a reprint in June 2019 by publisher Columbus Circle. Limited to 2500 copies, it features new cover art by the game's original illustrator, Hiroshi Aizawa.
