Oh. Yeah those are rocks too. Probably supposed to imply low gravity, like a bunch of asteroids just hanging around a planet. Harrier's ground running animation kind of contradicts that, but w/e.

The bootleg of this game where you were a Japanese schoolgirl shooting kangaroos and koalas with an Armalite AR-18 was way better.
If you flew to the middle of the screen you could kind of see her underwear

>If you flew to the middle of the screen you could kind of see her underwear
You only get to see them in the last stage (her outfit changes in some way every level), and you see literally a single pixel of white, pic related.
You do get to see her in a swimsuit in the underwater level, and she's wearing a gym outfit with the buruma in the fire level.
It seems like you could see her pantsu in the second level, but that's actually just her leg (it's flesh colored and the palette still has a spot for white).

As an aside, I kinda wish it was a better game -- having a max of two shots on screen as default is painful (powerups apparently let you get 4, assuming you don't die and lose 'em all), but the other big issue is that aiming is entirely unlike Space Harrier.

There, your shots move diagonally so that what you cover with your body is what you hit -- and they then home in slightly too because it turns out that hitting things is still a bitch even when you just have to line your body up with enemies.
In this game, shots just move straight forward along the Z axis, making it really fucking hard to hit anything that's not in the middle of the screen.

still, they clearly put a decent bit of effort into it, it's fast (maybe too fast -- you're flat out better just entirely avoiding enemies rather than trying to shoot them, and not just because it's hard to hit them), smooth, and they tried to change things up a little each stage with the music and graphics
getting the powerups is a bit rough too since the game is so fast, and you can shoot them on accident

They're rocks. It's the "Fantasy Zone," so they wanted to play it up with floating rocks and strange beings and the lot.
