A comprehensive, scrolling space shooter with options for either a vertical or horizontal display set in 2D against a rich 3D backdrop.
As pilot Shinra, players must battle their way through 18 stages, move swiftly and act rationally in a new war, a space crusade of frighteningly intense firepower and hypnotic beauty. Take control of the ship Ikaruga -- alter your energy field, evade epic maelstroms of fire and terminate enemies with a nearly limitless arsenal -- all to protect an aging, exiled people. Find calm amid the chaos and reap the rewards, in this perfect combination of beautiful, manga-style storytelling and refined, ultra-challenging arcade heroics. Developed by Treasure, Ikaruga is quick-paced shooter with strong strategy elements. Features a slow-mo training mode and co-op play for two.
Anyone who appreciates what makes a truly great game should be able to recognize Ikaruga for its elegant design, aesthetic beauty, and sheer challenge.
Addicting, beautiful, and challenging; everything anyone could ask for in a video game.
If you don't like intense, mind-numbing shooting action, then you're going to hate Ikaruga.
