That background looks like streamed animation. Reminds me of Microcosm. Not much of a game is it? I'd much rather play R-Type or Project X on my emulators.

Flying swarmers, roving crawlers, and mechanized walkers are just some of the enemies you'll face as you seek to liberate your homeworld from the evil Qotile. Fortunately, you've got an arsenal of special weapons and armor to squash them once and for all.
Yars' Revenge is the only game I bought for the Xbox Arcade app... I can't imagine how much time I spent trying to go through the levels... it's cool that her shield has that same retro vibe.
I'm going to guess most people never even heard of the original, let alone played it, but at least two of us remember it lol
