A great 3-D vertically scrolling manic shooter.

Giga Wing Generations is the 3rd installment of the Giga Wing series. The players control one of four futuristic aircraft to choose and each aircraft varies in ability more drastically than they do in previous games, including flight speed and shot type. The players has now the option of selects which stage (out of two) to tackle first. It's also the first game in the series that use a vertically aligned monitor unlike the earlier titles and featuring a enhanced 3d graphics and great effects and sounds.

There is a considerable step up in enemy bullet counts and speed. Shooting enemies now causes "shot medals" to flake off of them. These don't raise the hidden counter like reflect medals or kill medals, but they still add to your multiplier. Now reflecting bullets and grabbing medals also give you points. Reflect force ends with a "flash-out" which can kick back a few more bullets. Certain large enemies will have their bullets turned into shot medals when you kill them.

An enemy's kill value is decided by your distance from it at the time of shootdown. You get the max- 10,000,000 pts.- if you are at point-blank range. It can even be as low as 10 pts. if you're too far back.


Runs on the "Taito Type X" hardware.


Developed by Takumi, Giga Wing Generations was released in October 2004 in Japanese arcades by Taito Corp.
