The Raiden Project contains both arcade hits: Raiden I & Raiden II.
Raiden I: The year is 2090 A.D., the Earth was suddenly and aggressively invaded by aliens from another universe. As the fierce battle continues, the world's allied resistance recruited all of the top engineers to examine and evaluate a partially destroyed enemy fighter plane. As a result -- Raiden (meaning Thunderbolt) -- a super, high-altitude fighter-bomber was created. However, being so superior in performance, maneuverability and technology, they were only able to find two pilots who were capable of flying and controlling such a plane in battle. Now, the fate of the Earth is in the hands of these two fighter pilots.
Raiden II: For a period, the enemy was weakened and did not attack. Now, after 3 years, with replenished strength and supplies, an ever more severe battle breaks out. Gradually, the Earth begins to lose control. In order to break the state of war, the world's allied resistance has created an even more powerful Raiden II, equipped with amazing new weapons - the Plasma Laser and Cluster Bombs. The future of human kind now rests on the outcome of a battle with no bounds.
Game Play: The Raiden Project is a classic arcade shooter. Raiden I and Raiden II each have eight levels. Players can arm themselves with eight different weapons: Red vulcan bullets, Blue laser, Nuclear missiles, Homing missiles, Thermonuclear bombs, Full power, Blue sky fairy, Purple plasma lasers and Cluster bombs.
