G-Darius is a horizontal shooter similar to Gradius, but with the enemy capture mechanic of Galaga. Enemies are often robotic fish, and different enemies act as different weapons when captured. The bosses seem influenced by DonPachi, with more bullet hell-ish style of attacks. The soundtrack by Hisayoshi Ogura (and others?) is very unique, orchestral hardcore techno with an unusual amount of vocal sounds and dramatic piano.
- After selecting the easiest settings possible, I reached the last boss of Zone Nu and died at the 'hands' of The Embryon. I'm playing on the great mednafen emulator.
