Here is the HuCard conversion of the classic vertical shooter Raiden by Seibu Kaihatsu and converted for the PC Engine system by Hudson Soft. Your ship starts with a simple vulcan gun which can be massively upgraded during the game and streams of bullets will rapidly cover the screen. However, other kind of weapons is also available : the laser (Blue capsule). A secondary weapon can be collected, like homing or straight going missiles. One of the originality of the game was the special super bombs covering a fair amount of the screen and cleaning everything on its path. This version has obvious differences, due to technical limitations, compared to the arcade original : no two simultaneous players play and graphics are not as clear and colorful.
