Game History - Raptor: Call of the Shadows - 1994
Raptor is a vertically-scrolling shoot 'em up. It features smooth scrolling VGA
graphics, a variety of enemies on ground, air and sea, and an original soundtrack.
After completing each level you have the option of upgrading your ship with a
powerful arsenal of weapons and goodies. Some weapons are effective on only
ground or air targets, while some are on both. There are some really advanced
weapons like the auto-track mini-gun which can effectively destroy almost any
kind of targets without aiming the ship.
Dying in shoot'em ups can be annoying, especially if you have to start all over
the beginning. However, in Raptor you can save your game between each level. If
you have enough credit you can even buy multiple shields for further protection.
The 2010 edition of Raptor: Call of the Shadows includes improved graphics and
native support for higher resolutions (640x400, 960x600 and 1280x800). Standard
graphics are also available.
