Castle of Shikigami / Shikigami no Shiro EX AlfaSystem, Cosmo Machia / SourceNext, Degica 2002


In July 2005, a string of serial murders took place in Tokyo, where all the victims were female and killed by external injury. The killings took place within 20 hours. On July 21, the 31st victim was found. The police force classified the case as special crime #568, and began to seek investigators from occult sources. The story begins on July 23, with the 32nd victim. This vertical-scrolling shoot-'em-up Shikigami no Shiro was initially a Japanese arcade game which was then ported to North American consoles as Mobile Light Force 2. The Xbox release added Practice mode, Gallery, and Replay mode. This Japanese Windows port is of the first Xbox game. It includes I.R. mode and vertical screen layout from the arcade game. It features five levels with three stages each. Extending the replay value is a two-player mode and the ability to select from six characters (three male and three female to be exact). Aside from the standard rapid-fire stream of bullets standard to the genre, a spirit attack unique to each character is available, which significantly slows the ship's movement, but rewards the player with a substantial point increase. Coupled with the spirit attack is the Tension Bonus system, which rewards you with increased power and bonus points based on how close you are to enemies and their bullets. On Jun 15/2017, an English version was released. Game Features: Six playable characters with unique abilities and storylines; Five multipart stages of nightmarish demons in a ghost-infested modern-day Japan; Tension Bonus System that rewards risk; Exploit the time system to boost your score; Two-player local cooperative play; Newly translated story mode and character bios; Steam Achievements, Leaderboards and Trading Cards.
