There’s little else I can say here. It’s still the same Ikaruga, one of the, if not the absolute best shooter ever created, but on-the-go. It still looks great, it still sounds great, it still plays great. It suffers a bit from some screen-related shortcomings, but I still recommend this game to all Switch owners, without a doubt. Just get ready to die a lot more than any other game you’ll ever play in your life.
Ikaruga is hardcore shmups dream. At least if you are a massive shmup fan you most likely already know about it and decided to purchase it the minute it hits eShop. It is a title that offers a challenge to just simply beat and then to get the high scores demands speed, precision, memory and patience. Oh…so much patience. It succeeds in most areas, but it should be worth noting that it’s difficulty is unforgiving and more importantly a couple more levels would be appreciated.
Ikaruga is a classic shoot 'em up in every sense of the word and I'm happy to say that it holds up beautifully after over 15 years. Its polarity mechanic and breathtaking atmosphere certainly put it head and shoulders above many other entries in the genre.
