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.
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.
