Panzer Dragoon Zwei (パンツァードラグーン ツヴァイ), also known as Panzer Dragoon II and Panzer Dragoon II Zwei, is an "on-rails" shoot 'em up game released exclusively for the Sega Saturn. It was the second Panzer Dragoon game released but it is a prequel of the series. It was developed by Team Andromeda, one of Sega's internal development studios.
The player takes control of Jean-Luc Lundi. Lundi lives in a superstitious village where mutant coolias are killed, but when Lundi discovers a mutant coolia with wings, he decides to keep it and let it live. Lundi names the coolia 'Lagi'. Lagi has a strange green glow in his throat. After a few years the coolia begins to grow wings. Lundi takes the coolia out to try to get him to fly. On one occasion, when Lundi takes Lagi out, a huge ship called 'Shelcoof' controlled by Sestren destroys Lundi's village in an attempt to kill Lagi, who is possessed by the Heresy Program. Lagi's green glow grow's brighter and Lagi fires arrows of light from his mouth, the trademark attack of dragons from the ancient age. The lasers do not reach Shelcoof and Lundi begins to chase Shelcoof on Lagi's back. The ultimate goal of the game is to take down Shelcoof.
As with other Panzer Dragoon games (apart from Panzer Dragoon Saga), Zwei is a on-rails shooter. Each level has a certain amount of enemies that must be defeated with either Lundi's gun or Lagi's lasers. There is also the berserk attack which is a rain of lasers from Lagi for a limited amount of time eliminating all enemies on screen. Zwei was considerably more in-depth than Panzer Dragoon, with alternate routes to be taken and a dragon that evolves based on your performance in the game. Like most games of this genre, nearly every level has a boss battle somewhere in it.
