Darius was evidently recognised as a ruler in Babylon by courtesy of Cyrus, while it was Cyrus who actually held the power (see Is 45:1).

Darius II Back before the advent of 3D side scrolling shooters such as Darius 2 were all the rage, coming to their peak around the late eighties to early nineties, legendary titles in this Genre included the R-Type and Gradius series.

Darius 2 utilizes some very nicely detailed graphics, with some well animated sprites with a good range of colours, some of the giant bosses look particularly impressive, though your actual ships appear fairly rudimentary and bland, and some back grounds look a little rough around the edges at times.
