irem Collection Volume 3 contains Mr. Heli, Mystic Riders and Dragon Breed on one physical game disc/cartridge.

About Mr. Heli/Battle Chopper
Mr. Heli might be one of the wackiest shoot ’em ups ever released by Irem!
Players take control of the aforementioned Mr. Heli on his journey to save the world. Could it be any other way? However, Mr. Heli has a few tricks up his sleeve in terms of control and design. Gone are the days of merely moving from left to right on the screen. Considered a multidirectional scrolling shoot ’em up, players can control Mr. Heli in a 360° fashion! Mr. Heli has even more tricks up his sleeve, including a forward-firing gun, upwards shooting missiles, and bombs that roll across the ground like they’re in a bowling alley! Uncover hidden paths or gemstones to further upgrade Mr. Heli!

About Mystic Riders
Considered one of the more obscure Irem games, Mystic Riders ventures into a more fantastical setting rather than the usual dark or Giger-esque Irem style that gamers are familiar with.
You can play as either Mark or Zeal, using their magic and broom to your advantage as you progress through each stage. You can also fling your broom in a boomerang fashion to block projectiles or get a taste of an early version of the dodge roll, a move that is now common in gaming. The best part? Your friend can join in too, as Mystic Riders supports local two-player co-op!
Mystic Riders was exclusively released in Japanese arcades, making this the first opportunity for a Western audience to experience this arcade gem in the West and on modern platforms.

About Dragon Breed
Assume the role of King Kayus and his trusty dragon, Bahamoot. Players have separate control over both characters, enabling independent movements and attacks. Bahamooth is invincible and can deflect incoming projectiles with his tail, while Kayus can shoot down approaching enemies with his crossbow. Originally released in 1989 in Japanese arcades, “Dragon Breed’s” inclusion in the Irem Collection Volume 3 marks its first console release outside of Japan!
