X-Multiply is a shooter similar to R-Type with similar elements; for example, there's a big mothership in stage 2. Such ships are actually quite common in shooters, and can be also seen in the Gradius and Darius game series. There are 7 stages to the game. Irem released it along with Image Fight in 1998, for the Sega Saturn and Playstation, though it also appeared in arcades.
StoryTaking a page from the classic film Fantastic Voyage, microscopic aliens invade a colony planet in the year 2249, infesting humans with themselves. To combat the alien queen, currently residing in a human female host, local scientists construct and deploy the X-002, a microscopic fighter.
