Advanced Busterhawk Gley Lancer, commonly known as Gleylancer (グレイランサー), is a 1992 Sega Mega Drive shoot-'em-up by NCS released exclusively in Japan (despite having some of its text, such as in the Mover configuration screen described below, in near-perfect English). It was released internationally on the Wii Virtual Console in 2008.

Despite the English configuration screen, translation group M.I.J.E.T. released a patch which translated the story text in 2006-2007.

Story

Lucia is the 16-year-old daughter of a fighter pilot who disappears while fighting a war between humans and aliens in 2025. He was captured by aliens whom he had captured earlier who had the ability to teleport. Lucia hijacks the prototype fighter CSH-01-XA "Gley Lancer" to save him.

Gameplay

The Gley Lancer is a standalone ship that can only shoot straight ahead by pressing B (which can be held down for rapidfire) and change its speed with A. However, up to two Mover sub-ships can be attached to the main ship and fire in any direction with the main ship. Before starting a game, the player is given a choice of how to maneuver Movers around the ship and aim them; the C button performs some related action which is detailed in the selection screen.
