Shienryu (1997)
Developer: Warashi Inc.
Platform: SegaSaturn
Purchase Date: 1999

The weird octopus boss.

Shienryu is a pretty generic shooter devoid of any real personality to call its own. There are three different weapons for the ship and to switch between them, the player must pick up the appropriate power-ups. For the most part, the game seems to be copying Raiden but then the flow of enemy patterns changed completely once the player reaches level 5, a stage that is obviously ripped-off straight from Truxton/Tatsujin. The game is good but it's not memorable.

LIBRARY STATUS: 3 out of 5
