Colony 7
1981
CPU : M6809 @ 1MHz
Sound CPU : M6809 @ 0.87MHz
Notes : Very similar to Williams Defender hardware.
Colony 7 Colony 7
Flyers : Normal Flyer
 

Darius
1986
Main Processors : 2xMC68000 @ 8MHz
Sound CPU : 2xZ80 @ 4MHz
Sound Chips : 2xYM2203; MSM5205
Video Resolution : 864x224 (3x288x224)
Hardware Notes : This game uses 3 x PC080SN for generating tilemaps. They must be mapped somehow to a single memory block and set of scroll registers.
There is an additional text tilemap on top of this, to allow for both background planes scrolling. This need is presumably what led to the TC0100SCN tilemap chip, debuted in Ninja Warriors (c) 1987. (The TC0100SCN includes a separate text layer.)
