About

Go through the 360 degree siege!

Zero Gunner 2 is a top-down shooter game that first appeared in arcades in 2001.

The planes are three attack helicopters. They can use automatic normal shot, sub-shot and Drone Attack. The Drone Attack consumes energy and deals heavy damage to the enemy.

This shooter has an important system of Turn Marker. The Turn Marker become the axis of the plane’s change of direction when installed.

Master the Turn Marker system and prepare for attacks from all sides!

You’ll be surprised by the bosses attacks, transforming animations and 3D mechanical designs.
