Forgotten Worlds (Lost Worlds in Japan) is a Sci Fi-themed Shoot'Em Up Arcade Game developed by Capcom in 1988, as the very first game released on their popular CPS-1 arcade board. The game makes use of a rotating control scheme known as "Roll Switch" that allows aiming at any of the eight directions, something of a novelty back then, as well as a system of suporting satellites that adds a large variety of different weapon options (from Reflecting Lasers to napalm bombs). These weapons are purchasable from shops that literally raise from the ground/walls, attended by a girl named Sylphie, using zennies collected from defeated Mooks.

Set in the 29th Century, the story starts with a Galactic Conqueror and God of Evil and Destruction known as BIOS, who has created 8 evil gods and went on conquering and destroying worlds, turning them into husks of their former selves. Eventually, Earth is targeted and suffers the same fate, becoming a warren wasteland known as the "Dust World". The few humans that have survived decide to fight back by raising and training two childs into Badass Super Soldiers. This works wonders, and the two now adult Nameless Soldiers embark on a quest to defeat BIOS.

The game was quite succesful back then, getting ported to many consoles and home computers of the time, including the Mega Drive port (which has to cut a few things, like voiceovers and 2 stages) and the later Turbo Grafx 16 port (which removed 2 player co-op, but included a bunch of bonus features). The main characters were also brought somewhat reguarly in several of the company's Crossover games.

Tropes used in Forgotten Worlds include:
