Ikaruga review. http://www.ClassicGameRoom.com Classic Game Room reviews IKARUGA for Xbox 360 from Treasure, the famous Dreamcast SHMUP which makes its way onto Xbox Live, released in April, 2008. Originally released by Sega in the arcade, it later made it to the Japanese Dreamcast (JPN) and then to the Nintendo GameCube here in the United States. Treasure made Ikaruga for the Xbox 360 online service and made it well with achievements, gamer points and high definition graphics. The genre of this game is a SHMUP, but it Shmups like you've never seen it before. This awesome Vertical scrolling shooter, Manic shooter, Shoot 'em up shooting space ship game is based on a unique polarity system where you ship can absorb enemy fire of the same black or white polarity that your ship is in at the time!! Is there a chance that we'll be seeing RADIANT SILVERGUN on Xbox Live any time soon? Let's hope so! Treasure was formed by former Konami employees an they have produced games like Wario World, Gunstar Heroes, Bangai-O and Mischief Makers.
