About

Fire Arrow and Fire Arrow X are time attack (or 'Caravan', what used to be an important tradition in Japanese STGs in 90s) style shooters with a heavy emphasis on scoring, also known as "coffee break shmups"

Fire Arrow (Remastered):
• Enemy waves and various other elements are randomized. Unpredictable special events may even trigger on subsequent plays.
• Difficulty ramps up rather quickly and the better you do, the harder it will get.
• Collect as many medals as you can, as you progress further into the game, they will become more valuable and plentiful.
• Novice, 3 Minute, 5 Minute modes provide varying levels of challenge as well as a potentially greater variety of enemies and bosses to encounter. There is also a special unlockable mode that provides the greatest challenge.
• Freely switch between a wide spread shot (Red) and a narrow vulcan shot (Blue) to better adapt to the situation. Unlock the bonus ship for even greater firepower!
• Along with screen-clearing bombs, you also have a powerful DUAL ATTACK.

NEW to Steam version:

• New endings!
• More convenient menus.
• Completely rebalanced gameplay.
• Bonus round is now accessible by normal play on a certain mode.
• All new original soundtrack.
• Native gamepad support.

Fire Arrow X :
• This semi-sequel or semi-remake depending on how you look at it expands upon the basic gameplay of Fire Arrow while also changing up some of the rules.
• All the same modes and explosive action... now with more enemies, crazier bosses and even greater challenges!
• An unlockable endless mode if you need your endless fix after completing what the base game has to offer.

Fire Arrow Plus reviews and comments

Translated by

Product received for free It Is difficult to criticize the lack of content when it is a deliberate decision of the developers from the beginning, in order to pay homage to the Caravan SHMUPs of the nineties. And, in fact, any criticism of this title will be very subjective (as we all go, but here more than ever), because the enjoyment of the title depends on the hours you dedicate to him if you are willing to replay it many times. Otherwise, playable and technically the Team Grybanser Fox continues to demonstrate its good work in the genre and, at the price, is a bargain as it also offers the previous version of the title offering two games for the price of one. But It is a game for a very determined audience, because only the hardcore fans of the genre will know how to get all the juice, because the other players will only see a scarce and derisory lack of content. Here What matters is the Score, and if you do not understand that phrase, you better not be near the title.

Cute classic Shoot'M Up in for once really pretty pixel Look The Game is a little reminiscent of the great Shmups from Sega Saturn times like Batsugun And Battle Garegga. Not only the Gameplay (ballering everything away and picking up Items to improve your Own hunter) but also the Look is very reminiscent of old 32-bit times: Because when I say HÜBSCHE pixel optics then I mean it that way: You really feel put in a 16 or 32-bit Shmup Because it actually looks like it. The Game succeeds in the game as well as the ingenious And above all sublime Crimzon Clover. Other Developers only take a Standard 0815 pixoptic to make their Game look "cool" and "Retro." In most Cases, only an ugly Pixel Game of the Kind that the Term "Pixeloptics" has rightly brought into Disrepute among many Players comes Out. Such Games then look like a truly ancient NES or Atari game from the 1970s and early 80s, but run faster and depict more pixel explosions on screen at the Same time than even the most ambitious NES programmers would have got there Can. As You know, Summer Carnival ' 92-Recca Shmup technically gets everything that goes out of the NES-There's just not more in the Bread Box. And that's why all the cheaply made retro pixel shooters that are visually at Atari level but offer as fast and explosive action as a Playstation game, only show their modern origin only clearly, and just don't seem really "retro." Every old Atari or NES player knows that something like that was not possible at that time-that's why it doesn't seem like such a classic Game. One Drawback to Fire Arrow Plus is merely the relatively short Playing Time. However, if you like me just want to enjoy the Optics and crack your High Score, you can still sink many Hours into the Game-Because the Focus is clearly on Scoring! No-this Game really seems like a lost classic, and plays like that-please more of it.
