Take control of the ship Ikaruga -- alter your energy field, evade epic maelstroms of fire and terminate enemies with a nearly limitless arsenal -- all to protect an aging, exiled people. Find calm amid the chaos and reap the rewards, in this perfect combination of beautiful, manga-style storytelling and refined, ultra-challenging arcade heroics. As pilot Shinra, players must battle their way through 18 stages, move swiftly and act rationally in a new war, a space crusade of frighteningly intense firepower and hypnotic beauty. Developed by Treasure, Ikaruga is quick-paced shooter with strong strategy elements. Features a slow-mo training mode and co-op play for two.

Test Entries
Revision OS Version CPU GPU Result Tester
r6421 Windows 7 Intel Core 2 Duo E7200 @ 3.8GHz ATI Radeon HD 5850 Seemingly fully playable @ 60FPS, only played a bit of the first stage, no errors yet
r7584 Windows 7 Intel Core i7-2820QM @ 2.3GHz AMD Radeon HD 6970M Playable through first level, slowdown occurring in the second. Major slowdown during big explosions Sol
3.0 Mac OS X 10.6.8 Intel Core i5 @ 2.53GHz NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M Fully playable. Unexpected slowdown at the beginning of Stage 2. Slowdowns during explosions were as expected—they happen on GCN/Wii too. dipnlik
5.0-3965 Windows 10 Intel Core i3-3220 @ 3.3GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Perfect game at 100% speed with default settings. Safe texture cache was not needed for bullet polarities to display properly with either OpenGL or Direct3D, and after many hours I did not experience any sound dropouts. I was able to play to the middle of the last stage with no problems. Xerxes
