Ghost Blade HD

Ghost Blade HD is a shoot'em up game developed by indie devs from Hucast Games. We take on the role of the Earth Defense Force's best pilot whose job is to defeat Shira, a rogue A.I. that was installed on an abandoned space station located on the outer rim of the Solar System. In Ghost Blade HD we control one of the three superbly armed combat space ships. Gameplay focuses on eliminating hordes of enemies and gigantic bosses. To win, we have to not only shoot almost all the time, but also avoid the rain of bullets and laser beams fired at us. Along with the primary Story Mode, the game also offers Score Attack, where we have to beat the high scores set by other players from all around the world. We can play alone or in coop with another player. The game features cartoonish, eye-pleasing visuals and a dynamic soundtrack composed by Rafaell Dyll.
