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).

Good, but brutally difficult.

Plenty of content for $5, but its really hard even when you consider that games in this genre tend to be on the difficult side. Many of the bullets move really fast even on the opening level, and dodging them only gets harder the further you progress as they increase in number and more enemies fill the screen. Your reflexes become useless quickly and you'll have to really on sheer luck or memorization to progress beyond the later levels. Or you can choose the easy difficulty which isn't any easier, but merely equips you with many more continues.

Buy this if you love shmups or if you've already played the hell out of all the Cave shooters available on the App Store. In my opinion, Cave's offerings are better designed and have appropriate difficulty curves. And the different difficulty settings actually result in fewer bullets that move slower, not just more continues. This is a good game, four games really, but its not as well made as Cave's stuff. Start there and get this later if you don't tire of the genre after the numerous Bug Princess, Dodonpachi, and Espagulda titles.

A bit disappointing.

The first Raiden game is unbeatable. I can't continue where I left off? Oh no prob, I'll just beat the first level and this will be fixed! That's at least what happens at my near-by arcade, (dies on stage 2) this level has that problem? How am I supposed to beat the game with 3 continues? Also why does Autofire shoot automatically not continuous fire when the fire button is held? And Why can't I be the Blue ship in Raiden? The other games let you pick your ship so why not here? And where's multiplayer? I'd be nice to play these games with your friends in fact, I'm sure this game was made to be played with a friend. And finally it needs more Raiden games like Raiden 2 and Viper: Phase 1 (A.K.A. Raiden in space) When updated I'll give 5 stars. Thanks!

My fav ios game

This is the best and most played ios game i have.
I have been playing mainly the first raiden. Difficulty is addictive. Great for killing time and you can get sucked right in instantly.
Like everyone else says: I wish they included #2.

My main complaints are:
Pause is broken. After hitting resume(on the pause screen) the game starts back up but the video stays black for 1-1.5 seconds. In this game that equates to certain death.

Game stutters and skips bad when phone picks up a signal(after having none)- like when riding in the subway. Its so bad the an enemy can traverse the whole screen in a single hiccup. Also usually certain death.

Frame rate randomly drops- but a simple pause or app switch will usually restore it. But as I mentioned before, that is a dangerous move best saved for the few lulls in the levels.

I wish there was an option to resize the bomb button. It's small and requires a perfect tap. I find it really tough when things are intense.
