Einhander is the most technologically advanced shooter ever created and charged with Square Soft's state of the art 3D design and imagination. You're a suicide pilot with loyalties to the moon. Your mission is to fly deep into Earth territory, gather valuable recon, engage the enemy, capture weapons and ammunition. There is no final objective, no return vector. The Moon must survive and you must fight until the end.

Get ready for tons of fast action, with Einhander. You shoot hordes of alien ships and monsters in this 2D side-scrolling masterpiece. Set in a future of apocalyptic chaos, Einhander provides a lot of Power-ups and special weapons for you to use. Your thumb will be sore and your eyes will ache after you play this incredible shooter.

Excellent shooter, cool music and incredible animations, expecially for the end-of-level bosses.

Wow, Square's first shooter (I think). Not bad, it showed me that they can make games other than RPGs.
