Super Raiden is an enhanced CD-Rom version of the same game released in 1991 on HuCard by Hudson Soft. This is the conversion of of the vertical shooter created by Seibu Kaihatsu in 1990. As the arcade, this conversion offers detailed graphics and 10 varied and gigantic levels, from green hills to complex cities and space stations. Your ship is equiped with a main weapon which varies from a vulcan spread gun or a powerful and destructive front laser beam. Secondary missiles are also available ( homing or straight ). Bigger ships can be destroyed during the game to collect power-ups, Red Capusules to enhance your spread gun, or blue for the laser beam. Another destructive weapon is the bomb which can be dropped on your enemies and destroy nearly everything on screen. However, as you would expect, they are available in limited quantities but more can be collected along the way. Special items can also collected, like fairies or the P capsules which maxi-power up your weapon.
Super Raiden was released on April 02, 1992 in Japan for 5800 Yen.
