About The Game

Twin Hawk is a vertically scrolling arcade video game shoot-em-up.


Developed by Toaplan.

This game is known in Japan as "Dai Senpuu".

Differences Between Twin Hawk and Dai Senpuu

  • Twin Hawk supports two simultaneous players.
  • Dai Senpuu supports two players, but only one at a time. Because of this, it also supports Cocktail cabinets.
  • In Twin Hawk, both planes are purple and pink for player 1 and 2 respectively.
  • In Dai Senpuu, the planes are green for both players.
  • In Twin Hawk, when you die, you continue the game at current position.
  • In Dai Senpuu, when you die, you continue the game at predefined positions. This makes the game much more difficult to complete.
