The objective of the game is to fight through the city and industrial stages, and then beat the end boss, which make up the first level of the original Last Resort game. You fly a cyber jet and can obtain a robot drone as an additional weapon, upgrades for the drone are also available by collecting powerups. Various enemies appear within both stages, each having their own strengths and weaknesses, before you finally encounter the end boss.

Last Resort was developed with Fenix for the GP32 by KabaL, the game was adapted for the Dreamcast by Wraggster and a test version released in January 2005 (the game crashed when firing the weapon), no further releases of Last Resort were made.

This release comprises of Last Resort along with DCEvolution's version of Chui's Fenix SDL Loader (FSL) from November 2004, edited to exclude the Fenix splash screen and jingle, so the game loads directly.

The small graphic file that animated the weapon when fired (which caused the game to crash on Dreamcast) has been removed, the series of small graphic files that animated the Drone when charged (which caused a second crash on Dreamcast) have also been removed. The module files which play with distorted sound have been removed. The controls for the game have been reconfigured to be more user friendly with the Dreamcast controller, and to avoid inadvertently resetting the Dreamcast during play. Due to the alterations for this release, a download for the original GP32 version has been made available.
