So apparently I'm a young girl (With a nice rear end) who's the president of new japan. And it's her job to kick some ass.
Okay. So in the tutorial, the controls are similarish to Kid Icarus, but you can move in three dimensions and also fire with the stylus as well as aiming. Three dimensional shoot 'em up. :-) So you charge up your attack by holding down your stylus and then releasing it. Took a few minutes adjusting to the controls but they seem intuitive enough.
By building up kills you have an energy gauge that fills, allowing you to unleash a powerful blade attack which is like a nuclear bomb on the enemies around.
Okay so i think I've just got to a mini-boss type. And the mode changes. Instead of being able to move in three dimensions against it, it becomes more like Kid Icarus where you can only move within up and across. i.e. you don't control it going forwards or backwards.
Also, attacking leaves you vulnerable to attack. So if you shot a lot it drains your shield. Not shooting regenerates your shield. So you have to manage it correctly.
Overall this could be a really fun shoot 'em up! Just have to see how long the story mode is though... But there is a score attack mode too.
