Story

10,000 years ago an Artificial Intelligence known as Shira was built to protect the residents of Mars.
As time passed the AI became corrupted and Shira started to attack the Mars colonies. With no way to defend itself against ‘Evil Shira’ Mars calls for help. The Earth Defense Force fleet fights its way to ‘Evil Shira’ and uses powerful lasers to destroy it. However, ‘Evil Shira’ secretly had a backup that flees into space and takes over an abandoned space station at the outskirts of the solar system.

When the EDF notices the escape they send their bravest fighter after ‘Evil Shira’. You are this pilot, and your mission is to destroy Evil Shira before it can complete its new attack force and threaten the existence of the entire universe.

Tips For Getting Highscores

Earn points by destroying enemies and collecting Stage Star items. The higher your Combo Multiplier, the more you earn. Destroying enemies and crates add to the Combo Multiplier.

  • Use Focus shot for tight spots to avoid running into stray bullets
  • Try all ships to see which one fits best for your style of play
  • For a top scoring run kill as many enemies as possible and avoid dying and using bombs - use FOCUS shot to earn extra bombs and pick them up for a score bonus!
  • No-bombing gives big impact on score, as does having as high bomb count as possible.
