App Description

RAYSTORM, the second installment in TAITO’s classic RAY series of arcade shooting games, locks on to iPhone!

TAITO is famous for arcade shooting games, and the RAY trilogy is one of its most beloved series! Beloved for its beautiful 3D graphics and exhilarating pace, the series’ second installment (following RAYFORCE) is now available in app form!

*Two Game Modes: Remix Mode and Arcade Mode!
-The Remix Mode provides a new, iPhone-optimized experience with revised difficulty setting, enemy placement, and color schemes. The special TANZMIX mode sound is fresh, too!
-For the hardcore, Arcade Mode is a faithful touch screen 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.
-When impacted with special Attack gauge accumulated, Round-Divider activated by auto! You can avoid the shot of your aircraft!
Manual Mode adds weapon controls (a toggle for the standard shot; fire buttons for the lock-on laser and special attack), providing a more arcade-like play experience.

*Support MFi Bluetooth controllers!!
Key configuration is also possible! You can place 'Shot', 'Laser' and 'Special attack' on your easy-to-operate button!

*RAYSTORM's enchanting soundtrack is back!
