If you are a true fan of classic arcade shooting games (also known as shoot 'em up / SHMUPs / bullet hell space shooters / STG), you need to play Sky Champ - one of the best combinations of arcade Shoot 'Em Up & Monster Collecting Games.
This retro arcade shooter is made by Spirit Bomb, an award-winning shooting game developer that produces many classic space shooters and arcade bullet hell shmups (a.k.a. 弾幕 STG in Japanese). This time Spirit Bomb has come up with a unique shooting experience combining retro arcade shoot 'em up gameplay with monster collecting and RPG elements. Exceed the limit of the shmup genre!
Riding an Okimon (a.k.a Sky Beast) flying along with 2 sidekick monster pets casting chain lightning on fierce enemy invaders is a remarkable shooting experience that can't be found in any other classic space shooters nor airplane shooters. No more lifeless planes and spaceships, you will be immersed with these cute and formidable shooty creatures soaring wings in the seven skies.
Despite being a pick-up-and-play mobile game, Sky Champ has the most depth in the top-down shoot 'em up genre thanks to the RPG-style Elemental Rock-Paper-Scissors system. Sky monsters are divided into 3 elemental types: Fire - Water - Wood and can have elemental advantage against each other. Moreover, each monter has a unique attack move and will gain new elemental abilities when evolved. With these monster attack and skill systems, shooter-holic players can form countless monster squad combinations. This is a superb feature for shooter holic players who also love monster catching and monster collecting games.
⭐ GAME STORY ⭐
500 years ago, the fierce dragon beast Typhragon went rage and was about to destroy the earth. An ancient hero defeated the dragon beast and then sealed its spirit in a soulstone.
