One of the best vertical scrolling shooters yet. Great music, spectacular sound effects, and tons of multi-layer parallax, bright, vivid colors, and huge detailed bosses make this game a keeper.
Raiden on horse steroids. There is no other way to describe this game. Ten different ships, each with different weapon configurations,
manuverabilities, and other attributes. The Raiden ship from Raiden II
is also in this one, purple laser and all.
What's really great about this game is the diversity of the weapons. Each ship can acquire one of four power-ups. Bomb, Laser, Missles, or
Drone. Bomb of course give you more bombs, and laser and missles power up the respective weapons for each ship. (except for the Raiden ship,
where the L powers up your purple laser. Missles power up homing
missles. This, and one other ship are the only two that can use Laser
and Missles at the same time)
All ships (except the aforementioned two) also have a CHARGE WEAPON. Forget bombs, these charge weapons do MASSIVE destruction, and
you never run out!
Each ship can also acquire two Drones, which follow you around, shoot
stuff, and block enemy shots. Watch out, because they can be destroyed!
