About This Game


The one-of-a-kind science fiction-themed shoot ‘em up Dogyuun is packed with gigantic bosses and a huge enemy variety that provides a tough challenge even for hardened shmup veterans. Dogyuun is a visual spectacle of amazing pixel art graphics and detailed animation under the artistic vision of Hayashi Miho and Koetsu Iwabuchi. The game also marked the debut of manga artist Junya Inoue as one of the graphic artists.

“Dogyuun will knock your socks off. From a presentation standpoint it's virtually unbeatable in the genre to this day with some of the most creative and detailed stages and enemies ever created.” - Shmup Junkie

The story of Dogyuun:
”On the planet colony Dino emergency occurred!
The new variable bomber Sylfers, fresh from rollout, head for the base cut away from the communication.
But, what they was….?
It was the base swarmed by enigmatic mechanic entities.
Now a desperate revenge starts!”
