Raiden Trad is a spaceship shooter but instead of side scrolling it scrolls upwards, what I liked about this game was that you are not only fighting enemy’s in their air there are also on the ground instead. The spaceship has two primary weapons the first one looks like giant bullets which shots all the aircrafts and ground enemy’s and the second is a bomb explosion which wipes out all enemy’s near to you. A favourite thing for me on the game is the weapons, they have many different weapons in the game with different colours, speeds etc. these can be found by collecting the power ups in the games that look like a glowing square. Each coloured power up resembles a different style of gun. I found the colour of the spaceship to be quite dull mainly because of it colours, but I did like how the green engine flame would move when you move the spaceship. The background of the game will frequently change from military environment to the sea and others etc. I liked how the enemy ships would turn to an angle when attacking, I found this different from other spaceship shooters. The way the enemies die is quite cool they have little explosions like a bomb has just hit them.
