RAIDEN LEGACY, a four-title compilation of the mega-popular RAIDEN arcade series, includes RAIDEN, RAIDEN FIGHTERS, RAIDEN FIGHTERS 2 & RAIDEN FIGHTERS JET. Originally developed by Seibu Kaihatsu, each of these classic scrolling shooters has not only been authentically recreated for mobile, but also enhanced with brand-new features!
Each RAIDEN LEGACY title includes three different modes: “Arcade Mode” (just like the original); “Mission Mode”, which allows you to play any unlocked stage; and “Training Mode”, which, true to its name, allows you to excel at your favorite stages and practice the most difficult ones!
15+ different ships, each with their own characteristics, stats, weapons, and specials! Also, some ships come complete with “charged shots” – useful for when the screen is 90% covered with enemies!
Choose between two different touch modes: “Fast Touch” (Faster than the original game and improved for mobiles) or “Arcade Touch” (Just like the original – retrogamers will love it!). What’s more, you can customize your approach by putting the controls wherever you prefer on screen.
-Play in full-screen, or keep the game’s original screen ratio thanks to “Original Mode” (note that your fingers will be outside the game area).
-Two difficulty modes: Medium and Hard.
-Nine languages available: English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Russian, Japanese, Korean and Portuguese
-Video filtering (for rich, smooth graphics)
-iPhone 5 optimized

Ratings and Reviews
This game is decent enough, but would be excellent if it actually had a floating joystick, instead of the awkward way you move your plane around the screen at the moment. Even changing the control method requires you to use both hands to move the ship from one side of the area to the opposite side. This would be a 5 star shooter, except without a virtual stick, this is very difficult to progress through.
Great nostalgic feel, but is only 40% accurate to the originals due to speed and aspect ratio
Thanks for making this playable on the iPhone. Hats off. However I have some grips with what you’ve made here.
1) the frame rate for Raiden 1 is way too fast compared to the original, almost making it unplayable. Please fix and update
2) the window view for Raiden 1 is totally wrong. It’s not long enough, and your full screen is too long?!? If you had to fix one, please correct the full screen view so it matches the original portrait view we experienced in the arcades. Thank you ;)
Good but needs better controls
Expects you to wave your finger all over the screen, a virtual joystick would have been SOOO MUCH better. The more I play this to TRY to like this, the more the problems of having your finger obscuring what is going on onscreen becomes apparent, down to 3 stars.
