GG Aleste II (GGアレスタII), released as Power Strike II in Europe, is a shoot-'em-up for the Sega Game Gear in Compile's Aleste series and the sequel to GG Aleste.


Heavily based on the previous game, II has better game customization and the ability to choose which subweapon to start every life with, much like the other the other Power Strike II.

  • Neo Napalm Gun: periodically shoots napalm bombs slightly diagonally away from the main shot. Typically considered to be the best weapon in the game.
  • Hammer Hawk: periodically shoot homing missiles parallel to the main shot.
  • Delta Form: a sub-ship that circles the main ship, periodically firing its own shot.
  • Rising Masher: a laser gun firing parallel to the main shot.

This game also introduces a smart bomb mechanic, similar to Gunhed. Press 1 to use one from your current stock (under your lives).
