If only other games could have bosses as half as good as the ones in Axelay.

This game isn't frightfully different from Gradius, but still fun. Plot: Earth is invaded by aliens, and you must save it. Okay, the plot isn't he most original in the world. But basically you fly through different levels, either upwards or left to right, and fight some great bosses. This is not the most memorable shooter in the world, but fun nonetheless. The graphics are beautiful, again, especially the bosses. The sounds also play very well, with a descent soundtrack and sound effects. From start to finish, this is a great, but short game. You could find higher quality shoot 'em up games, but this s definitely worth a try.
