Another great Cave shmup

Stephen Lerch, Amazon
18 September 2013
  • Summary: If you like shoot 'em ups (shmups), you need this. Just like all Cave shooters, the game play is frantic and full of fun. Just like all Cave shooters, the idea is to get as far as possible on a single credit. This is a throwback to the game play of old where arcade goers went only for high scores and their initials on the game. For those that want to see the ending, sure, you can play away and it's an "easy" game. Throw enough continues at it and you'll win.

Perfect?

Robert Gaffney, Amazon
3 September 2013
  • Summary: Simple to pick up but offers depth and clever power ups and scoring mechanics. Beautiful graphics, but smart choices in bullet and collectible items' colors prevent the onscreen madness from being too confusing. This is a bullet hell shooter, so theres constantly a screen full of stuff to avoid but the difficulty is perfectly balanced. Theres really nothing to complain about.

User Review

FatalDeathSG45, Metacritic

  • Summary: I've always admired Cave shooters. They practically invented the "bullet hell" variety of shoot-em-ups, where you're dodging literally hundred or thousands of bullets. This game is no different. 3 different planes to choose from, beautiful 2D visuals, and intense shooting gameplay with challenging bosses await those who play this game. A few innovative features like a Phantom (which is I've always admired Cave shooters.

Not a bad shooter but it is "bullet hell"

N. Pawar "thestoneman", Amazon
9 July 2013
  • Summary: This is a cave shooter so of course it's "bullet hell" like all of their shooters (that I've played). It's actually horizontal which is somewhat strange for the genre, I actually thought it was vertical prior to purchasing because I wasn't paying attention. You get 3 characters. There is lots of stuff flying at you at all times. It would be frustrating if there weren't infinite continues. Control is fantastic (thank God!).

What ever

Naser Alsulaihim, Amazon

  • Summary: I hate shooter air plans that swarms the screen with enemy bullets and gives you at the same time the fire power to do minimum effort to breeze through it. Simply ridicules game play.

quality game

  • Summary: The game play mechanics are a bit complicated to grasp, but are a lot of fun once they click. In a nutshell, it involves flying your aircraft and shooting enemies to release collectible items, summoning a powerful ninja phantom, & cashing in items for massive scoring gains. The game systems are all explained in great detail within the full color instruction manual. Akai Katana is one of the best looking two Dimensional games out there.

Fast-paced Fun

Kristy Madden "junebugtyme", Amazon

  • Summary: I love the colors, artwork and fast pace of this game. It companions well with the Deathsmiles series which is more female-oriented. If you love anime and gaming, you will love this game.
