[4] GUNBEE F-99 is a clone of Konami's anime vertical shooter DETANA!! TWINBEE (aka BELLS & WHISTLES). Originally it received a shareware release as AMIBEE in Oct 1997.

AMIBEE V1.22 (shareware demo) is available for download on Aminet HERE (dir: game/shoot/amibee.lha).

[5] Soon after the shareware release of AMIBEE, APC&TCP and Crystal Software (Holland) sent expressions of interest for the commercial publication of the game to main coder Mr.Byte/TEG. He chose to sign with APC&TCP in Feb 1998 and enlisted the help of several support coders over the months that followed. The commercial version GUNBEE-F99 featured 3 additional levels and many graphical, aural and gameplay enhancements over the shareware version when released in Oct 1998 [Source: TEG game diary].

GUNBEE F-99 (commercial demo) is available for download on Aminet (dir: game/demo/Gunbee-F99.lha) and the publisher's website.

[6] An overview of GUNBEE F-99 in Spanish appears on the developer's website HERE (see English translation HERE).

[7] Additional screenshots of GUNBEE F-99 that didn't appear in the game due to space restrictions are also available on the developer's website HERE.
