Violent Soldier is a horizontal shooter by IGS. An advanced civilization has been sending attack probes towards our planet, and the premise of alien invasion forces Earth scientists to assemble a fleet of space-fighters to counter the threat. The violent soldiers are sent into enemy territory to destroy the alien stronghold. Each fighter comes with an unique feature - an armored cone is installed at the front of the ship and protects it from enemy fire. However, the cone is fully adjustable and collecting power-ups gives the player the ability to open this special nose-feature, allowing for a wider spread of attack (from 3 to 5 ways), but offers a weaker protection. Three different weapons are available throughout the game - laser-beams (blue), Vulcan spread-laser (red) and homing missiles (green). Special pods can also be collected and used to protect the areas directly above and below the ship. Finally, a powerful ring blast can be charged up by holding the fire button to protect the ship from enemy shots, or damage alien ships foolish enough to venture within its effective range. Violent Soldier consists of six levels.
