Warp & Warp is a multi-directional shooter arcade game that was released by Namco in 1981 and licensed to the Rock-Ola Manufacturing Corporation for US manufacture and distribution as Warp Warp. The game was later ported to the MSX, and a sequel titled Warpman was released for the Famicom in 1985 with additional features and improved graphics.
The player must take control of a “Monster Fighter”, who must shoot tongue-sticking aliens named “Berobero” in the “Space World” without letting them touch him. If he kills three Berobero of the same colour in a row, a mystery alien will appear that can be killed for extra points. When the Warp Zone in the centre of the screen flashes in the Japanese version or the English text “WARP” in the US versions), it is possible for the Monster Fighter to warp to the “Maze World”, where the Berobero must be killed with time-delay bombs. The delay is controlled by how long the player holds the button down – but every time he kills one, his bombs will get stronger, making it easier for the Monster Fighter to blow himself up with his own bombs until he returns to Space World.
