App Description

TAITO is famous for arcade shooting games, and the RAY trilogy is one of the most beloved series!
Ever since the 1993 release of the trilogy's first installment, RAYFORCE, fans have been thrilled by the game's cinematic visuals and gorgeous layered raster scrolling graphics. RAYFORCE became a 2D shooting instant classic, and now it's available for iPhone and iPad!

*Two Game Modes: Remix Mode and Arcade Mode!
The Remix Mode provides a new, iPhone-optimized experience with simple flick-style controls.
For the hardcore, Arcade Mode is a faithful touchscreen recreation of the original arcade game.

*Two Shooting Methods: Auto and Manual!
Auto Mode provides automatic, button-free firing for both the standard weapon and lock on laser, allowing players to take on this challenging game with a single finger.
Manual Mode adds weapon controls (a toggle for the standard shot and a fire button for the lock on laser), providing a more arcade-like play experience.

*Support MFi Bluetooth controllers!!
Key configuration is also possible!

*Game Center Compatibility!
Individual rankings have been prepared for each ships and for each game mode.

*Difficulty Modes Added!
A total of 8 difficulty modes are now available, ranging from Very Easy to Very Hard.

*RAYFORCE's gorgeous graphics and striking raster scrolling, perfectly recreated!
RAYFORCE owes much of its unique look to the arcade technology of the time, and no expense has been spared replicating those visuals for the iPhone edition of the game.

*RAYFORCE's enchanting soundtrack is back!
One of the highlights of the original RAYFORCE experience was its sound design, perfectly replicated here under the supervision of TAITO's ZUNTATA sound team.

*Added a arranged BGM by SHOHEI TSUCHIYA(ZUNTATA) on Area1!
