"3D-like" expression seen in the SEGA arcade game of the 1980s is realized only by reducing the Sprite and rewriting the BG cell.

There was a Japanese who is publishing his own demo created with "Petit Com 2" on YouTube.

"Afterburner" like demo video and commentary video link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=apOCesg0wNM
"Space Harrier 2" like demo video and commentary video link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vpcoHrRreLE
