Gunstar Super Heroes
Released in October 2005, Gunstar Super Heroes is considered more of a tribute to the original Gunstar Heroes than a true sequel. Many of the villains and stage themes from the first game appear, only slightly revised. Even the game's plot is similar, involving Gunstar Yellow, Green, and the four gems again. As a result, the game received mixed reviews. Some reviewers proclaimed Super Heroes a successful return to action-packed, old-school gameplay; others were of the opinion that the title was merely a rehash of the first game.
