RAYSTORM, the second installment in TAITO’s classic RAY series of arcade shooting games, locks on to iPhone!
TAITO is famous for arcade shooting games, and the RAY trilogy is one of its most beloved series! Beloved for its beautiful 3D graphics and exhilarating pace, the series’ second installment (following RAYFORCE) is now available in app form!
*Two Game Modes: iPhone Mode and Arcade Mode!
-The iPhone Mode provides a new, iPhone-optimized experience with revised difficulty setting, enemy placement, and color schemes. The special TANZMIX mode sound is fresh, too!
-For the hardcore, Arcade Mode is a faithful touch screen 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. Even the special attack can be unleashed automatically!
Manual Mode adds weapon controls (a toggle for the standard shot; fire buttons for the lock-on laser and special attack), providing a more arcade-like play experience.
*Choose between two ships: the R-GRAY1 and R-GRAY2!
RAYSTORM features two playable ships, each with different combat capabilities. The R-GRAY1 boasts powerful shots, while the R-GRAY2’s lasers are capable of locking on to a greater number of targets. Choose the ship that best suits your play style!
*RAYSTORM's enchanting soundtrack is back!
One of the highlights of the original RAYSTORM experience was its sound design, perfectly replicated here under the supervision of TAITO's ZUNTATA sound team. In addition to the classic soundtrack, this edition includes special TANZMIX renditions!
*Game Center Compatibility!

One of the most beautiful Japanese shooters ever
Ever since I first played this game in the late 90’s, I was completely mesmerized — by the gameplay and the production values. And I’m glad that I can relive those memories again — right in the palm of my hand.
One thing, though: I would like to see an update for the screen to be expanded to fit the 4-inch display of the iPod Touch 5th generation and later iPhones. I believe that would create an even more immersive experience for owners of these devices.
Also, I hope an iOS port of RayCrisis is in the works. I will get it for sure :)
Keep the awesome games coming!
Sooo Many Memories...
Excellent port of one of the all-time greats. The game's art and audio direction have held up great even after all these years! Only complaint is that I really wish Taito would get around to doing true iPad ports of these classics (en lieu of purely "iPhone" versions).
I've never played the ray series games before but I'm a huge shmup fan and had to try them out. This one is loads of fun! My only complaint is the price, which is not a big deal, and the lag that came up a FEW times. Not nearly as bad as your Rayforce port which had it more often.
