IrK is a freeware shmup by Akatuki Twilight, featuring a unique weapon system not unlike the one found in Einhander. Destroying certain enemy ships will cause them to drop their weapons for you to collect. Press the V key to use these weapons as bombs. Hold the C key to make your character move slower. Both weapons can be fired by using either the Z or X key. Tap the space key to pause the game.

Right after selecting the start option from the main menu, you're requested to choose a difficulty level, then arm the protagonist with additional weapons. Boss fights can be rather lengthy, plus good bullet dodging skills is a must for any progress past the first three stages. A decent STG for veteran danmaku fans, but beginners should approach with caution.

Click on IrK ver0.2 to begin downloading the 16MB trial version. The rest of the files are patches or BGMs, which are not required to play the game.
