DESCRIPTION

[ARCADE] Sega NAOMI GD

斑鳩 © 2001 Treasure.

(Ikaruga)

A shoot-em-up arcade game which brings a perfect blend of classic arcade shooting and original gameplay. The player's ship can switch between two different 'polarities' : White and Dark. The Dark polarity can absorb dark colored enemy bullets while the White polarity can absorb white-colored enemy bullets. If the player kills 3 enemies of the same color in a row, a combo is built up that adds to the score.
