Keio Flying Squadron, called Keiou Yuugekitai (慶応遊撃隊) in Japan, is a 1993 comical shoot-'em-up for the Sega Mega-CD by Victor Entertainment. It was followed by Keio Flying Squadron 2.

The protagonist Rami, a girl wearing a bunny suit, and her dragon pet Spot (ぽち in the Japanese version), set out to recover a stolen treasure.

Gameplay

B shoots, A changes the dragons movement speed. Staying still makes up to two mini dragons appear. They behave similar to options as seen in games like Konami's Gradius series. C uses these mini dragons to releases a powerfull shot

Versions

The western release was slightly censored, for example:

  • Rami's age was increased
  • The dragon's testicles, visible in a cutscene leading to the second stage, were removed
