Japanese free games and their innovations have been discussed extensively in this section of Megagames. It is enough therefore, to just say that Amanagi is a typical example. A former shareware vertical shooter, Amanagi offers exceptional visual effects and introduces some new features, managing to rejuvenate an tired and abused genre.
Officially described as a 3D side scrolling shooting game, Amanagi is much more than that. Its main innovation is the colorful power-up system, a wide variety of options are available to the player, allowing for various attack combinations.
The, always vital, gameplay aspect is not neglected and the game offers an overall very entertaining experience.
