Back in the day it was your dozen of triangles versus the enemy. A creepy voice over told you "SCRAMBLE", "Good Luck", and "Wing Damage!". That plane could still fly despite the loss. Partnered up with gibbering animals, you went off to fight a monkey in a box hiding behind a face that ate too much geometry for breakfast. That was their story. This is STARFOX!
P.S. There was a secret level where you could fight a giant slot machine to the tune of 'When the Saints come marching in', after that you were forced to blast the end credits until you quit out of boredom.
