Ikari No Yosai 1 & 2 (Jaleco - Game Boy - 1991/1992)

  • the first game was known outside of Japan as Fortified Zone
  • the 2nd game was not released outside of Japan

This is about as good quality a scan as there is, unfortunately.

I like how the US cover just shrugs off context, and redraws the same exactly thing except worse.
