• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

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:
