Battle Bakraid - Rank A

START HERE if you're new to the column.

ROM Filename: bbakraid
Developer: Eighting/Raizing (offshoot of Toaplan)
Publisher: Eighting/Raizing
Date: April 1999

This is the sort of sequel to Battle Garegga. It's a worthy successor to that great game, with a zippier feel and tone. Fans of bullet mazes, stacking power ups, and parades of boss fights will be glad they tracked Battle Bakraid down. The guys at Eighting/Raizing simply know how to make sharp, entertaining top-down shooters.

You've got your mandatory fire button (which you can thankfully simply hold down) and bomb button, and a formation button with which to arrange the little ships that escort you. Not firing also creates a shield on the nose of your plane. Oh, and pick the plane with the homing missiles unless you want extra challenge.
