Rapid Reload

Rapid Reload is a side-scrolling shooter in the vein of the Metal Slug franchise. Known as Gunners Heaven in Japan.

Overview

Players assume the role of heroes Alex and Ruka; their mission is to retrieve the magic stone "Valkiry" and stop the nefarious terrorist organization "The Pumpkin Heads" from achieving world domination.

Graphics are hand-drawn and pixelated; thus reminiscent of the artistic style used in the Metal Slug games. The game-play is also rather similar: Players run, jump and shoot their way through several stages, usually from left to right; support vehicles that provide superior firepower can also be acquired.
