In a distant world, an intergalactic ship carrying settlers to the planet Laderia II is suddenly trapped by a powerful magnetic field from a strange planet. On board a small stealth fighter, the Rayden MG323, Major Celina Pelinsky, member of Task Force Irena is sent on a mission to destroy the magnetic field source before the energy shield protecting the mother ship of the settlers fails. Celina will have to use all of her skills as an experienced pilot to make her way to this hostile planet where she will have to fight the forces of the terrible Supreme Emperor Shungor; an evil being with mysterious powers.
During the game, the player can collect different power ups to upgrade their main weapon and equip two modules; one increasing firepower and one to create a magnetic shield protecting the ship from enemy projectiles.
Depending on the situation, it's possible to adapt your ship’s speed to three different levels with a button push. You can set the default speed in the options menu according to your preference. The current speed is indicated on the HUD in the right of the screen for better visibility.
During the progression, there are dangerous mini-bosses. It will be necessary to be well armed and know the different patterns in order to win the fight and continue the stage.
As the player destroys enemies, the special attack bar will increase. Once fully charged, the special attack can be used to clear the screen of all enemies through a powerful four dragon attack inspired by The Revenge of Shinobi.
