Gameplay Overview

Similar to Raiden, the player can fire the main shot and a bomb, which has an adjustable distance. When picking up weapon variant items, the player is granted an armor that can take one hit. If the player is hit armorless, a life will be lost.


  • A: Shot
  • B: Bomb


Scoring consists of destroying enemies and collecting medals. After clearing a stage, the collected medals will create a bonus and add it to the player`s score.
