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: Remix Mode and Arcade Mode!
-The Remix 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.
-When impacted with special Attack gauge accumulated, Round-Divider activated by auto! You can avoid the shot of your aircraft!
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.

*Support MFi Bluetooth controllers!!
Key configuration is also possible! You can place 'Shot', 'Laser' and 'Special attack' on your easy-to-operate button!
(When using the controller and playing Remix Mode,you can change the speed of your ship from OPTION > Move Ratio.)

*Choose between two ships: the R-GRAY1 and R-GRAY2!

*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!

Thanks for updating!

I loved this game same since it's debut back on the original PlayStation in 1997, and I still love it today! Thank you for updating this app to be compatible with the major upcoming iOS 11 update that will render 32 bit apps obsolete. And advertise your game so that more people will become aware of this awesome gem!



When I open RAYSTORM, It obviously goes through the Taito™ Logo and then goes to the Touch to Start screen aka the Start Screen. So I tap to start the game. And it won't work. The words "Touch To Start" just stay there and then fade out and come back and fade out again. You know what I mean but. Anyways, I just stay there tapping my screen so hard that I'm sure that I was on the brink of breaking the iPad Screen. So I played RayForce... Which is not included in this review because this is my review about RAYSTORM, So RAYSTORM wouldn't startup. So I just want Taito™ to fix this. They either fix this with an update or they give a refund.

Cool port but.....

Nice port of a ps1 classic but needs the option to change the screen orientation to get the longer vertical view(portrait) like a true shmup should have. It deserves a 5 star review but this small problem keeps it from getting that perfect rating. I just don't understand why Rayforce had the good view but this one doesn't :/ still a great game though, and a steal at 3.99. Playing on iPhone 6s Plus version 9.2 operating system.
