Cannon Spike, known as Gunspike (ガンスパイク) in Japan, is an action-shoot-'em-up game developed by Psikyo and published by Capcom for Sega NAOMI hardware and the Sega Dreamcast. It is a top down run-and-gun shooter, in which you play as a variety of Capcom characters who must stop terrorist robots. This was the last Dreamcast game ever to be released in Europe.
