Shogun: Rise Of The Renegade is a shoot’em up inspired by japanese arcade games of the 90’s.
A few words from the team:
We created this game as a tribute to the old-school manic shooters (aka bullet hell or danmaku) but enhanced with a modern, touch based game-interface and easy to read HD graphics.
As gamers ourselves, our first goal was to create a game that we wanted to play.
