Raiden X Walkthrough

Raiden is a classic vertical shooting game developed and published by Seibu Kaihatsu. Raiden was released in arcades in the year 1990 and spawned numerous ports to home consoles such as the Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo. In 1993, Raiden's sequel, Raiden II was released. Raiden II featured the same general gameplay, but added two new weapons to players' arsenals. Raiden X is a Flash game that pays homage to the Raiden series and is loosely based on Raiden II. It was released in 2005 and goes down in history as one of the best reviewed Flash shoot-em-up games. Raiden X is not a perfect port and has a few differences that will be discussed later in this article.

The objective of Raiden X is to survive through waves of enemies until reaching the boss of each level. There are eight levels in all, based on those of the classic game, Raiden II. Unlike the arcade game, you can save your progress at the end of each level so you can continue from where you left off if you need to take a break.

In the Raiden games, the color of the jet indicated which player was in control of it. Player 1 was red while Player 2 was blue. Raiden X is a single-player only game, and the color of the jet indicates which weapon you are currently using. Collecting colored squares changes your weapon if your craft is a different color, or upgrades your weapon if your craft is the same color. Red indicates the vulcan, which performs like a shotgun. It does massive damage to large enemies at close range while it is great for picking off smaller enemies with its spread at longer ranges. Blue indicates the laser which fires in a single beam but does massive damage. The purple weapon (which is my personal favorite and was one of the weapons introduced in Raiden II) is the plasma beam. The plasma beam locks onto targets and snakes around the screen, eliminating smaller enemies while slowly damaging larger ones.

In the original Raiden games, the primary weapon and bomb were independent of each other. In Raiden X, the type of bomb that is deployed depends on your primary weapon type. The vulcan's bomb is the basic nuclear bomb that was featured in the classic game. The laser's bomb does massive damage in a concentrated cone in front of your fighter. The plasma beam's bomb is probably the least-damaging of the three, but it strikes twice is is great for clearing the entire screen of small enemies. Unfortunately, the cluster bomb (which was the second weapon introduced in Raiden II) does not make an appearance in this Flash game.

Raiden X may not be a perfect clone of Raiden II, but it is an excellent tribute to the classic game. Raiden X2 has also been announced by the developer of Raiden X, but it has been in development hell since 2005. Hopefully, it will be just as amazing as Raiden X and do the classic game justice!
