Giga Wing centers around a mystical medallion that grants godlike power, and a team of pilots charged with destroying it after it falls into the wrong hands. Released for Capcom's CPS2 platform during a late 90s resurgence of interest in shoot-em-ups, Giga Wing features a horizontal screen and a bright, almost garish graphic style. The game's four pilots each have different storylines and weapons, but they all share the Reflect Force, a rechargeable shield that reflects bullets back at enemies, typically releasing a cascade of score-boosting medals across the screen. Though the Reflect Force helps somewhat manage the bullet hell of the game's later levels, Giga Wing's high level of difficulty has limited its appeal somewhat; nonetheless, the game spawned two sequels for both arcades and consoles.
