From MobyGames:

   Deviating slightly from Compile's usual vertically scrolling fashion, Gulkave is a rather orthodox horizontal shooter. Flying across – or inside – a parallax scrolling landscape, your spaceship must singlehandedly take out eight fortresses. In your way stand enemy spaceships that either try to crush you or fire at you, as well as some asteroids thrown in for good measure. For each hit you take, your ship is not destroyed. Instead, you have a power (barrier) bar that decreases gradually until you finally lose a ship. At the end of each level, bonus points are given according to your remaining barrier. Losing a ship means you lose all your weapons upgrades as well. As usual with a shooter from this maker, the powerups come in the shape of numbered pods that are released from Zanac-style blocks. Different upgrades give higher shot counts, more simultaneous bullets or bigger energy waves. At certain score intervals, you're granted bonus ships.
   The game was released for both the MSX and Sega's SG-1000 console, the latter version having two levels less.

Videogame Console:

This ver­sion of Gulkave was de­sig­ned for the Se­ga SG-1000, which was first 8-bit Se­ga vi­deo ga­me con­so­le ma­nu­fac­tu­red in the years 1983 - 1985. It was laun­ched on the sa­me day as much mo­re suc­ces­s­ful NES con­so­le and with ex­cep­ti­ons, it was sold on­ly in Ja­pan. The u­nit pri­ce of SG-1000 was 15,000 yen, the sa­me pri­ce as for NES. Con­so­le was not very suc­ces­s­ful and af­ter 2 years was with­drawn from the mar­ket. Mo­re in­for­ma­ti­on about Se­ga SG-1000 can be found here.
