Were the following 2D Shooters ever released for the PC?

Were the following 2D Shooters ever commercially released for the PC?

I was wondering if the following 2D shooters were ever commercially released for the PC as full/final products in some media CD/DVD-ROM or Floppies?

XII STAG – Shoot Em Up / / Vertical / TAITO (I’ve tried a demo called XII STAG Limited)

Magical Chase - Cute Em Up / Horizontal / Palsoft (Conversion from the PCE featuring a young witch like the Cotton series)

Reflex – Siterkain - Shoot Em Up / Vertical (Was the full final version ever released? I’ve only tried a 3 level Kick-Ass demo)

Metal Force - Shoot Em Up / Vertical (I have very little info on this apart from a few random lo-res screen-shots)

Moral Minus - Shoot Em Up / Vertical (I’ve tried a demo back in 2002; it featured high-res polygonal graphics like Ikaruga)

Twinkle Soft Vertical Shooters:

Excess Fraction - 1999
Rally Raid - 2000
Steel Heart - 2000
Barrage Tribe - 2001

Any links would be highly appreciated.
Even more if some kind chap could provide help of where/how to download them?

Thanks in advance.

A PC version of Magical Chase running on Windows'95/98 was released in 1998 by Bothtec. The game is identical to the PC Engine version, music soundtracks even seem to have been directly sampled from the PC Engine HuCard game.

Interestingly enough, the US TurboGrafx-16 version of Magical Chase was slightly improved in the graphics department, compared to the PC-Engine version:

Was the PC version based on the PCE or the TG-16 version, or was it improved further more with true 256 colours on screen?

There are probably no real PC improvements, but i can't confirm it. Maybe i search for it the next days.
