Super attacks give you a shield as you just enjoy blasting things

Spread attacks? Nah, I use a curve laser. 



No story, but you don't need one with gameplay this solid. Multiple enemies, shields with super attacks. Cash shop only for convienience and to speed up progress. Stage select.

Lightning Raider 2 is just what you can expect from a classic sci-fi plane shoot em up. It's great, with solid explosions. There's also no ads. Bullet patterns here are readable and dodgeable, and even if you make a mistake, you have shields that are basically additional life that you can buy and use.

It's a game that you can play while on the train or a car and truly enjoy. It gets a high 8/10
