RAIDEN LEGACY, a four-title compilation of the mega-popular RAIDEN arcade series, includes RAIDEN, RAIDEN FIGHTERS, RAIDEN FIGHTERS 2 & RAIDEN FIGHTERS JET. Originally developed by Seibu Kaihatsu, each of these classic scrolling shooters has not only been authentically recreated for mobile, but also enhanced with brand-new features!
Each RAIDEN LEGACY title includes three different modes: “Arcade Mode” (just like the original); “Mission Mode”, which allows you to play any unlocked stage; and “Training Mode”, which, true to its name, allows you to excel at your favorite stages and practice the most difficult ones!
15+ different ships, each with their own characteristics, stats, weapons, and specials! Also, some ships come complete with “charged shots” – useful for when the screen is 90% covered with enemies!
Choose between two different touch modes: “Fast Touch” (Faster than the original game and improved for mobiles) or “Arcade Touch” (Just like the original – retrogamers will love it!). What’s more, you can customize your approach by putting the controls wherever you prefer on screen.
-Play in full-screen, or keep the game’s original screen ratio thanks to “Original Mode” (note that your fingers will be outside the game area).
-Two difficulty modes: Medium and Hard.
-Nine languages available: English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Russian, Japanese, Korean and Portuguese
-Video filtering (for rich, smooth graphics)

A True Time Capsule, But Limited on MFi
Wow - These original games are of amazing visual, sound, music, and gameplay quality, and it shines here.
However, I am using my iPad Mini 2 as a portable console with gamepad, so the requirement to play the game in portrait mode means I can't leave it on my wire charger while playing, killing the battery. Also, there is a glitch where the start button on my MFi Steel Series Stratus does not work, neither in game to continue, or to bring up the emulator's menu. I'd totally play this if it worked better as a portable console game (!)
All the fast-paced action of the arcade games are in this app. However, action moves a little too fast for the controls. Your plane should be able to move as fast as your finger does. The game maintains its arcade difficulty and without multiplayer, it's not really fair. Either lower the difficulty or have unlimited continues. Also, Raiden 2 is missing. A sequel needs to be made as their competitors are getting the better of them.
This is the exact same game as in the arcade. Amazing. I would love to see more of these emulations of older classics. I was surprised at how well the controls felt. It almost feels like actual analog controls. My only complaint is I have not figured out how to insert more coins in arcade mode...
