70's robot anime geppy x

box art for 70’s Robot Anime GEPPY-X (Aroma - PSX - 1999)

I’ve been having a heck of a time finding any substantial info on this horizontal shmup, but I have pieced together enough to figure out that GEPPY-X is NOT a real anime. In fact this game is a parody of shows like Mazinger Z, and they do a pretty convincing job with the grainy anime clips and fake ads that play between “episodes”. You don’t need to know any Japanese to play it, and you can even get some of the humor they’re going for too.
