Spaceship flying through a tunnel while battling bugs

OK, now I have another game whose name I can't remember.
This one was on the PS1, and gameplay was in the style of
Gyrus Coin Op
but in this one you control a spaceship travelling through a tunnel system while fighting against insects of many different varieties.
Some gave you power-ups which could be used against the HUGE boss bugs.

The graphics were exceptional , the gameplay awesome and addictive,
and things were fleshed out in the graphics, like the 'starbursts', 'lens flares', and the zoom and fade effect with scoring and power-ups like you see in Tempest on the Atari Jaguar:

and the soundtrack featured

Re: Spaceship flying through a tunnel while battling bugs

I think you'll have trouble getting an answer since it's PS1. Most of our name that game gurus are retro focused, one trick ponies you could say.

Yeah!
NITROUS OXIDE!
Thank you Bakingumby, I was wondering if that game had drifted away in the sands of time...

You're right, it is a trippy game and also was one of my PS1 favorites.

Re: Spaceship flying through a tunnel while battling bugs

Never fear for lost games on RU odds are somebody here knows it. It's one of my favorites too. I really liked how once the game was done loading if you weren't in the mood for The Crystal Method you could just pop the game disc out and put your own CD in and still play.

I had no idea.
The PS1 I had was equipped with a 'modchip' to allow playing backup copy burned games, which came with the system and so I never saw the packaging for them, let alone the instruction book.

Re: Spaceship flying through a tunnel while battling bugs

Oh well, it was a very interesting feature, the first game I know of that you can do that in.

Re: Spaceship flying through a tunnel while battling bugs

I'm pretty sure I remember playing Doom on PS1 and doing that with the music. The only problem was we couldn't select what track would play, it had to be a good CD.

Still, thanks and welcome aboard the best site on the net.
