Game Details

Fly through stages riding dragonback. The dragon's body is invulnerable and can be used to block shots, but you (the rider) make a large, vulnerable target. Position is critical, because you never want an enemy above you -- unless there is ground nearby where you can land, jump off and shoot them out of the sky.

***** by bloodflowers. Comment: "Excellent scrolling shooter - a fairly dark feel is evident throughout, through the use of X-Multiply/R-type style graphics and a powerful soundtrack. Not the hardest game in the world so you might want to dipswitch it to hard mode. The way the Dragon moves is very intuitive and adds a nice control element, since it can be used against enemies." 2001-08-10 07:38:18Z
