Ikaruga Review: Escape from Bullet Hell, to Treasure’s Polar Purgatory | Hardcore Droid

Ikaruga is something of a hardcore gaming legend. When it was released in Japan on the Dreamcast in 2002, well after SEGA had left their final console for dead, it became the most imported game of all time here in America. Aided in part by the reputation of its precursor, the insanely collectible Radiant Silvergun, a game in a dead genre on a dead system managed to turn enough heads to get an American release on GameCube, and eventually a re-release on Xbox Live Arcade, and led the way to a short-lived renaissance of arcade shooters. Now the little shmup that could is making its way to mobile – exclusively on Android, no less. (Android, Ikaruga, Mobile) 4/5
