The classic shooting game “RayStorm” returns with newly-updated graphics, and the original gameplay. Now you can control R-GRAY a fighter plane equipped with a lock-on laser system and battle your way through eight adrenaline filled stages. Available now with a variety of game modes, including Arcade Mode and Extra Mode, and four selectable planes!

RayStorm HD is a remake that combines the gameplay of the original RayStorm, released as the second in the series in 1996, with all-new graphics updated for the present day. The gorgeous Lock-On Lasers that define the title, the engrossing audio tracks and the epic eight-stage game scenario will draw players back into the world of the feverish shoot-'em-up.

Loaded with gameplay options such as Arcade Mode and Extra Mode, the title also includes a Ranking Mode that allows players to upload their best scores to the online global rankings.

Gameplay possibilities are broadened by two additional spacecraft: the completely new R-GEAR, developed just for RayStorm HD, and the R-Gray 0, which first appeared as a secret spaceship in the home console port.

Hundreds of years in the future, the Earth is under attack! Choose your ship and set out to defend your homeworld from the invading forces of the Secilia Federation. The classic arcade shooter has been reborn for a new generation.
