Cult classic video game developer Treasure is behind some of the most well-regarded video games of the 1990s and  2000, including Gunstar Heroes, Guardian Heroes, Radiant Silvergun, Ikaruga, and Sin & Punishment. This book examines their entire output, including other lesser known games like Mischief Makers, Dynamite Headdy, Stretch Panic, Rakugaki Showtime, Silhouette Mirage, Bangai-O, and Alien Soldier, as well as their multiplayer anime brawlers based on Yu Yu Hakusho and Bleach. It also examines the expanded universe of related titles that have the Treasure spirit, either by sharing development staff or using similar mechanics, including Mad Stalker, Panzer Bandit, Rapid Reload (AKA Gunners Heaven), Asuka 120% Burning Fest, Phantom Breaker, Code of Princess, and several others. This way Treasure fans can expand their knowledge beyond just the titles they're familiar with and potentially find new games to enjoy! Finally, there are capsule reviews of 80 Japanese Saturn games, the premier console for 2D action, making this essential reading for fans of retro video game action!
