It doesn't look very good.. (and having played Last Hope that doesn't surprise me)

Ugly pre-rendered graphics.

Vertical Shooter on a Horizontal Screen (urgh)

Dull backdrop sequences, again just pre-rendered loops.

Uninteresting, and non-fluid bullet patterns (the bullets look 'tacked on' and for lack of a better word 'sticky')

Generic looking enemies / boss.

I see nothing too original about the gameplay mechanics either, it doesn't seem to have a unique hook of any kind.

I like shooters, but this is nothing revolutionary, it looks like a poor-mans vertical rip-off of Blazing Star and would have been shunned in favor of that even if it had been released at the same time.  The genre has come a long way since then, and the subtle details which make the more recent shooters so good appear to be missing.

Anybody can make a shooter, making a good shooter is something only a few companies have mastered.  Sorry to rain on the parade, but I can't see it being any better than Last Hope, and that was dire (and basically a bad rip-off of Blazing Star's prequel, Pulstar...)
