The barrier can be maintained for longer by grazing enemy bullets (the graze system), resulting in even higher scores. Firepower increases by grabbing power-ups and you can also collect cherrry points which can earn extra points but also grant temporary invulnerability. Compared to the PC version, the arcade version supports both vertical and horizontal monitors, adds a new playable character and new background music arranged by Mr. Keishi Yonao, the input delay is 2 frames where it is 6 in the PC version.

jp Rumble Storm X

Rumble Storm XRumble Storm X is released today! After Bad Ass Babes Kiss, this is the second game to be released on the Hawt Pink Club system. Rumble Storm X is an oldschool solo shoot'em up made by StudioS (Strip Fighter 5). When mechanical creatures appear to destroy Earth, Reika climbs into her experimental XEX ship that can convert human emotions into energy to repel them. The ship has 3 firing modes with 9 power levels each. It is also equipped with an automatic avoidance system (named a-ch0) that allows you to escape enemy fire at the last moment. As with all shoot'em ups, there are many subtleties in the scoring, such as the fact that your shots are more powerful when you are in proximity to enemies (which makes you earn more points). There are also bonus points hidden throughout the levels. On the technical side, the game is only playable on horizontal screens, despite being a vertical scrolling shooting game, the picture of a camera pointed at the pilot (a girl with a generous chest drawn in manga style) is displayed on the left side of the screen and the score as well as various information (number of bombs, shooting and speed levels) are displayed on the right side. The game runs at a constant speed of 60fps and is very responsive as the input delay is of only 2 frames. Like all Hawt Pink Club games, there are scenes that should not be exposed to all eyes, such as the sexual torture scenes endured by Reika's partner Yui when she is abducted by the machines. Similarly, Reika's ship is powered by her emotions, which leads to scenes of penetration to make it work... The good news is that all pornographic elements can be disabled in test mode to make the game suitable to all audiences, as you can see in the trailer. The other good news (for those who don't know) is that the game is compatible with exA-Arcadia systems! As with all exA games, Rumble Storm X comes with all the necessary artwork and a poster. The game is distributed by Hacker Global in Japan and by Red Sun Systems in Europe.
