* DarkerAndEdgier: Treasure somehow took the incredible bleakness of ''VideoGame/RadiantSilvergun'' and make it darker, in particular with the nearly monochrome watercolor artwork and dysfunctional heroes.

However, this game comes up as a {{Reconstruction}} of the LighterAndSofter trope (see below).



* LighterAndSofter: Reconstructed, compared to ''Radiant Silvergun''. The story is somewhat more positive in tone, and ends with [[spoiler:a BittersweetEnding rather than one where [[StableTimeLoop nothing]] [[ShootTheShaggyDog gets fixed]].]] The game is also [[SequelDifficultyDrop easier]].

Released as an arcade game (using the Sega NAOMI platform) and on the [[UsefulNotes/SegaDreamcast Dreamcast]] in Japan in 2001, it was later ported to the [[UsefulNotes/NintendoGameCube GameCube]] around the world in 2003. In 2008, it was ported to UsefulNotes/{{Xbox 360}} via XboxLiveArcade. In 2013, a port of the game was released for {{Android|Games}} smartphones. A Windows PC port based on the Xbox 360 version of ''Ikaruga'' was [[http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=183195387 greenlit]] for UsefulNotes/{{Steam}}, and consequently released on February 18, 2014.

'''''Ikaruga''''' is a modernized take on the "BulletHell" school of [[ShootEmUp Shoot 'em Ups]], developed by Creator/{{Treasure}}. It's widely regarded as one of the best examples of the genre, and a SpiritualSuccessor to ''VideoGame/RadiantSilvergun''.
