App description: In 2057, the earth was attacked by unknown aliens.
The Earth Defense Force is doing all it can to defend against the attack,
but it is not enough.
Our last hope is an advanced space-fighter named "Raider Pheasant" orbiting
above the space colony of Jupiter.
Will "Raider Pheasant" be able to make it to earth and destroy the aliens?

Yes. One leaderboard and 1,000 achievement points. It may still work if you have the GC bug.

I played one long game and let me tell you, pretty much everything about Raider Pheasant is really good. I didn't see any ads or IAPs. But let me back up a minute..

The touch controls (IMO) are perfect! The stages are nice and long, but not too long (TWSS), the graphics are good, good weapon variety, idk, I'd say it's definitely worth giving it a download.

There is just one thing I would ask of the developer if he/she/they were here and that would be: Please make the little black HUD at the top clear instead of black. It blocks a little chunk of the playing field. And, being that the enemies come from the top, it just makes sense to make that area as open as possible. The info could stay, not sure if the stuff other than your shield is really necessary though.

Verdict: Very solid shooter with excellent touch controls. It's a mash-up of SHMUP during the stages and Bullet-Hell at the bosses. Really pretty nifty. All shooter fans should try this without hesitation.

Played it a little.

Enemy variety is great (but not very wild about the graphics style)

But the weapon is rather dull imho but it does not affect the balance and fun.

Recommended (yeah MFi controller support is good but seems not entirely necessary)
