Granada (グラナダ) is a 1990 shoot-'em-up by Wolf Team released in the US and Japan for the Sega Mega Drive and in Japan for the X68000. "Granada" is a mobile tank-like weapon whose origin is uncertain. In September 2016, Leon Todo, a private mercenary, accepts a task from an enterprise agent that takes him to Japan, where he finds Granada and uses it to complete said task.

A European release was planned by Ubisoft[4] but it did not materialise.

Gameplay

The player is situated in a large field full of enemies, obstacles, and enemy generators that may be freely moved upon (unlike most conventional shoot-'em-ups). The goal of each level is to destroy each enemy generator (red dots on the HUD in the bottom right corner) and then a boss all before the timer runs out.

A shoots a normal weapon (which can rapidfire) and C shoots a missile (which can only shoot one at a time, though there is unlimited missiles, and will knock the player back a bit). Holding B locks the orientation so moving the D-pad will not also rotate your ship. It is possible to find a miniature ship that will help in its own ways.
