App description: TAITO's shooting classic RAYFORCE is back, in iPhone form!
Now featuring a special optimized Remix Mode with intuitive one-finger controls!

*-**-*** RAYFORCE Details ***-**-*

TAITO is famous for arcade shooting games, and the RAY trilogy is one of the most beloved series!
Ever since the 1993 release of the trilogy's first installment, RAYFORCE, fans have been thrilled by the game's cinematic visuals and gorgeous layered raster scrolling graphics. RAYFORCE became a 2D shooting instant classic, and now it's available for iPhone and iPod touch!

*Two Game Modes: Remix Mode and Arcade Mode!
The Remix Mode provides a new, iPhone-optimized experience with simple flick-style controls.
For the hardcore, Arcade Mode is a faithful touchscreen recreation of the original arcade game.

*Two Shooting Methods: Auto and Manual!
Auto Mode provides automatic, button-free firing for both the standard weapon and lock on laser, allowing players to take on this challenging game with a single finger.
Manual Mode adds weapon controls (a toggle for the standard shot and a fire button for the lock on laser), providing a more arcade-like play experience.

*Two Display Types: Zoom and Original!
The Zoom display enlarges the play area, filling the entire iPhone screen with dynamic visuals.
For the purist, the Original display mode delivers a pixel-perfect rendition of the arcade game's screen.

*Difficulty Modes Added!
A total of 8 difficulty modes are now available, ranging from Very Easy to Very Hard.

*RAYFORCE's gorgeous graphics and striking raster scrolling, perfectly recreated!
RAYFORCE owes much of its unique look to the arcade technology of the time, and no expense has been spared replicating those visuals for the iPhone edition of the game.

*RAYFORCE's enchanting soundtrack is back!
One of the highlights of the original RAYFORCE experience was its sound design, perfectly replicated here under the supervision of TAITO's ZUNTATA sound team.

*Game Center Compatibility!
Individual rankings have been prepared for each stage and for each game mode.

TAITO, Please release my favorite game you ever made, Jungle King, on this platform!!!! I used to own the original Jungle Hunt in the stand-up arcade cabinet, then the Jungle King machine, the sit down cocktail version, then, years later the Xbox disc. Would love to have it in my pocket always here on the IOS! I'd be forever grateful!! Thanks! If you have any plans for that, make my day and have someone PM me with the good news!!!

If so that's the right moment until January 7th 2013 ( 2.69).

Do you need info about HDMI out and iCade to use your iDevice as a real game station? Go there and there and thank Connector and Menneisyys.

Yupperz... this sale is a perfect time to pick this one up if you've been waiting. The controls in arcade mode are kind of hard to get comfortable with (unless you're familiar with playing Blazing Star or Raiden with their 'normal'/'hardcore' controls) - but the Touch Mode is just like the 'Fast Touch' option in both those games - allowing for faster movement of the ship. For that mode alone, it's well worth the purchase. If you're comfortable with the original movement speeds of BS or Raiden, then the original Arcade Mode should be no problem. =oD

Suggestion followed. I was a fan of original arcade because of is aiming system. Now it looks to me less "good looking" but it has great fashion and good playability.

I'm very confused about GC leaderboards.

There are "Arcade" and "iPhone" modes, I guess they are related to control systems.
For both of them there are "NORMAL" and "SIMPLE" from "A 1" to "A 7" + "All". I'm pretty sure "A 1" to "A 7" + "All" are related to levels, but I really can't understand "NORMAL" and "SIMPLE" as difficulty options are 7 (not 2!).
