Anyone who's a fan of the shmup genre has at least heard of Ikaruga. It's a beautiful game that was previously on the gamecube and later ported to other systems. It's often cited as being one of the hardest shmups (and games in general) of all time. That's not a joke or an exaggeration. If you think you're going to walk into this game and beat it easily (without unlimited continues) you're wrong. It's very tough but also very rewarding with its dual phase mechanic. If your ship is black, you absorb black bullets and die in one hit. If you're white, it's the opposite. You have to use this mechanic to survive as the enemies will be blanketing the screen in bullets and lasers trying to kill you with alternating colors. I very much recommend this game but be aware that if you don't like hard games, this one may not be for you.

One of my favourite games of all time. "Only" 5 levels, but every one is beautiful. Short and sweet, incredible game. Assuming you like top down shooters, and enjoy very difficult games this is a must play. 9/10.

A perfect PC port of the classic (and hard as balls) shmup Ikaruga on Dreamcast. Supports higher native resolutions and X-Input controllers. So, basically, everything this port ever needed.

It's good. If you like shmups or are a fan of the original Arcade, Dreamcast or Gamecube releases, get this port. You won't regret it.

Ikaruga's biggest strength is the fact that it plays like a puzzle game despite it being a shump. Unlike Radiant Silvergun, there are only two weapons (standard shot, and a series of lasers), and enemies have two color schemes (black and white) as suppose to three (red, blue, and yellow). Ikaruga has several improvements over Silvergun: The game is more fast-paced than its predecessor, as well as greatly reducing the clutter on the controls (you no longer need to press multiple buttons Simultaneously to initiate a special move). It does have its flaws: the game is rather short and can be beaten within 25 to 50 minutes, the visibility between enemies and obstacles can be hard to tell at times, as well as the lack of proper power-ups (as enemy chains only effect the score and rank). Nonetheless, Ikaruga is a fantastic title in its own right and if you're a fan of bullet hell games, or various Treasure games like Dynamite Headdy or Mischief Makers, this game is for you!

extremely difficult game but also extremely fun! the polarity ability adds to the challenge of dodging bullets by absorbing them and having to constantly switch back and forth to avoid getting pinned down into a corner, timing is everything!

Really love the boss designs too.

The idea of switching sides and absorbing bullets is cool, but there are some difficulty spikes in the middle of the levels that make the game not enjoyable at all. Repeating the same level multiple times just to die every time in the same spot (I'm looking at you, level 2) while the rest of the level is trivial doesn't seem right to me.

Shortly after I started playing it, Ikaruga became my favourite game I have ever played. Its visual style is stunning... this is one of the games you will reconize from kilometers. And gameplay (polarity system) is so good... IT MAKES ANY OTHER GAME LOOK LIKE AS*! The game is hard, that is for sure, but with practice it becase just more and more enjoyable to play it over and over again. Also, the game features "appendix" mode, a gallery of illustrations and desings of characters and vhenicles from the game and its backstory and I was amazed by the detail and quality of the material in the gallery! Its stunning! And also the soundtrack from the game is the best one I have ever heard and you can listen to it in that mode also.
In addition to classic arcade mode, game has prototype mode and chapter select, where you can perfectcize a chapter you are having a trouble with.
Best shoot 'em up ever created... and one of the best games ever created that deserves to be in the same line with Half life 2 and similar games of that kind...

Ikarugua is a shooter hell game that was developedI by TREASURE, the same developer who made great classics like Gunstar Heroes, Guardian Heroes, Sin & Punishment, Radiant Silvergun, etc. This game was originally a Japan-exclusive game to the Arcades and the Dreamcast. It was released worldwide for the Nintendo Gamecube in 2003. This is game was also released to Xbox Live in 2011. then Steam port was released in February 18, 2014.

This game doesn't really feature power-ups, but it features a unique mechanic in exchange. This game allows you to change the prolarity of your ship to light and dark. If you chose the wrong polarity for the ship, you're basically screwed.

Ikarugua is really known for the challenge. Try playing it in hard mode, and you'll know why this game is seriously difficult. Ikarugua may be known for its difficulty, but it's also really addictive. The levels are really well-made and the music is really amazing in my opinion. The graphics are really good for this year. The Steam port of Ikarugua has gamepad support. I tested this game with a Xbox One controller, and it works pretty well. I'm not sure if this works with any gamepad other than a Xbox One controller, so can anyone please confirm it? The controls were very reponsive and stiff.

Just because this game is really good, that doesn't mean it has its flaws. One of the issues I have about this game is the story seems non-existent. The another issues is because of its difficulty, this game can possibly make someone throw a controller (or keyboard) to the wall. Ikaruga doesn't have many levels, and the levels are short if you mastered the game.

Pros
  • Unique Design
  • Amazing Soundtrack
  • Very Addictive
  • Challenging
  • Extremely Fun
  • Very Nice Gameplay
  • Amazing Graphics
  • Gamepad Support
  • Responsive Controls

Cons
  • Can take you a long time to beat the game
  • I know added the difficulty as a pro, but it also can be a con to others
  • Doesn't have many levels
  • Levels are short if you mastered the game
  • Non-existent Story

I recommend you to buy this game. It's one of the best shooters (Not counting FPS) in steam.

Reviewer's Notes
This is my first review, so please give me some feedback. I have low hours in this game, but I encourage you to try this game.

EDIT 5/15/16: Fixed some of grammatical errors.

I had to clear it in free mode, so really, anyone can pick up this game and beat it....eventually.
It is, under normal circumstances, almost inhumanly challenging, so BE WARNED.
It's a good looking, great running shoot-em-up (SHMUP, for the uninitiated) with a killer soundtrack.

Pretty good shooter. Really fun and glorious. Awesome music too.

Too bad the devs forgot the first 15 levels out of 20!
It starts HARD and quicky turns into a fv(<!n§ HELL!!


And SO, what do these things have in common? Ikebana, Martial Arts, Anti-Tsunami barriers, Origami, Tea Ceremony, Ikaruga?

Answer: a complete obsession for total, asbolute control. Made in Japan.
This is a game made by perfectionists, that REALLY needs PERFECTION to be mastered,

Only for stubborn (and Japanese) players: you are advised!

PS: Oh, I love Japanese shape of mind so much. You guys really give a new sense to the word "gambarimasu!"

I've loved this game since I got it on Dreamcast, and on GameCube, and I play it at my local arcade. The point is it's amazing.
The ability to switch color in order to absorb some bullets and become susceptible to others really adds new depth to the genre and is applied brilliantly.
The gameplay is fun and quick and gets more challenging as you go.
Definitely recommended for anyone who loves the R-Type or space shooter games.

Red Herring ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

1. Make sure you're logged in and go to the Steam store page in your web browser (not Steam's one! Use Opera or Chrome as Firefox doesn't seem to work with this).
2. Go to Ikaruga's page.
3. Go to the search bar above and type "search" then press enter.
4. Type 1v7531 in the popup and hit enter.
5. BADGE!

If you ever need to increase your blood pressure without the use of medications, simply play Ikaruga with three lives and no continues.

For a casual gamer like myself it's pretty hardcore. Had it on console back in the day. Seemed to remember it being easier than this. Anyway, read another more articulate reviewer who takes actual time and effort to explain the black and white polarity madness.

It's so much fun I cannot adequately put it in to words.

“Wasted potential” comes to mind thinking about Ikaruga. A truly awesome mechanic that has never been used before wasted for a puzzle game.

The boss fights give a glimpse of what could have been, if Treasure had designed the game around survival play and surprise, surprise, they are the best parts of the game. (the first boss excluded, which is quite boring).

I simply can't be bothered to learn to chain since it's just not much fun. I tried it on the first stage, since it's quite easy there, but on stage 2 it's already way harder — and not just to properly chain while staying alive, but even more so to just figure out a route.

That really is the heart of Ikaruga: figuring out the best route to chain all the enemies and then of course also pull it off. I don't really care for that tough and especially not when I'm playing a shooting game.

Compared to other games with bad scoring systems like Dodonpachi, Ikaruga is way more designed around its scoring system — to such a point really that when you play for survival, the flow of the game (and the logic of the game world) is totally ♥♥♥♥ed up. There are long parts where all you do is change polarity every couple seconds and that's it. Enemies that don't even shoot at you are commonplace in Ikaruga, sections where you don't have to do almost anything in order to survive, plentiful.

Dodonpachi is at least still fun to play when you ignore scoring, Ikaruga is just depressing when you play it that way.

Данную игру без преувеличения можно назвать классикой.Один из последних крупных
проектов на "ДримКаст" являющийся стильным и хардкорным скролл-шутером в лучших
традициях 90-х. Море врагов, яркие спецэффекты, огромные боссы - что еще нужно
для полного счастья?

Необычный шут-эм-ап от, кхм, культовой фирмы Treasure, которую можно вспомнить по играм Gunstar Heroes, Alien Soldier, Sin & Punishment и т.д. Фишка в полярностях: белой и черной. Когда корабль белый, то не получает повреждения от белых пуль, а также наносит усиленный урон врагам с черной полярностью - и наоборот. В общем, в итоге игра в какой-то степени оставляет впечатление паззла, а не скроллшутера. Требуется мужество и усидчивость, если хотите пройти на одно "продолжение" (число продолжений и жизней настраивается). А так, хочется отметить красоту - музыка, дизайн, все играет перед нами красками и звуками, сплетаясь в авангардный балет.
