Repulse (リパルス), also known as '99: The Last War, is a Kyugo arcade hardware arcade fixed-screen shoot-'em-up game developed by Crux[1] and manufactured by Sega.[1] Released exclusively to Japanese arcades in June 1985, the game is most notable for its relatively-advanced simulation of depth; by scaling-out bullets as they travel, enemies near the rear of the playfield can be taken out by well-aimed shots.

Sega also licensed the game to Japanese distributors Kyugo and Proma for redistribution as '99: The Last War, with the exact details of the agreements unknown (and with further speculation that Crux actually served as the licensor.)
