Description official description

Rogue mutants, named Lufian were originally bred to manage food production in the overpopulated and resource scarce Earth, but they've revolted against their human masters. The army has been soundly defeated, and now it's up to two teenage heroes, 14-year-old Saki Amamiya and 15-year-old Airan Jo to save the day. As the story advances, the heroes find out the Lufian's true intention and that the mutants could jeopardize the future of Earth!

on rail running shooter

The Good
I loved the fast moving and frantic shooting that treasure nearly always produce. The bosses range from gaint screen filling monsters to people with swords and its not always a case of just finding there weak spot. you can also beat it in under an hour

The Bad
you can beat in under an hour. Otherwise it is just the usually gripes you would have with an on-rails shooter, no freedom, etc.

The Bottom Line
A running on-rails shooter a bit like star fox but more restictive
