I'll give ESWAT (another vastly different MD home conversion) another go, too, as the MD version frustrated me by seemingly only allowing you to fire one shot at once, I *did* complete the game but the firing was all messed up, would've felt better if it'd been a bit more generous.
the MD version of eswat lets you have two shots untill you powerup to the robo-suit on level three, then you get access to different weapons that fire at different rates including a fast firing automatic machine gun doobrie and a gun that fires quick plasma shots if you hammer the button , or charges up for a massive plasma ball if you stop tapping the button (sort of like r-type).

when you're powered up you can fly around the screen and hover too which is pretty cool. i really like the game and its totally do-able on 1 life if you get good at it.

the arcade version just seemed a bit like shinobi but not as good and way harder to me.
