This game was licensed, distributed and manufactured by Taito which explains why Taito name appears sometimes next to Hellfire. A Megadrive version released in 1990 also exists but only the PC Engine version has an introduction sequence and end of stage animations. Stop reading now if you do not want the end of Hellfire to be spoiled. I warned you. Ok, let's continue. In the PC Engine version, the blonde girl decides to sacrifice herself and crash into the alien space station, the end sequence finishing on her torned hair-bow floating in space. I wonder if this ending is part of the original version or just an added bonus to this version. If we can call it his way.

There is something missing in this game. It is a nice shooter, the game introduction presents an alien invasion but later stages shows pyramides and floating 'egyptian like' enemies. And I still find the weapon system a bit weird and hard to use. Even if it is a Toaplan game, it is far from the best.
