This is what the Saturn is all
about, arcade action shooters in 2D. No other system of it's time could
pull of what the Saturn could and this game is one of those to show off
what the Saturn can do. Soukyugurentai comes to us from Raizing, the
same people who brought us Battle Garegga and Kingdom Grandprix as well
as others. While those games never really looked that hot
they certainly played well. This is where
Soukyugurentai differs. Soukyugurentai plays well and looks beautiful !!
Let's talk about the way it plays first. Your ship is equipped with the
standard fire and bombs (which look stunning by the way) but also a very
nice lock on laser system. Similar to that used in Layer
Section 1 and 2 but also different enough to
be unique. Your ship can output a wire polygon frame that scans
everything within it (below or above) then locks on to that item.
Release the button to let loose a devastating lock on laser or cluster
attack depending on which of the two frames you use.
