Published by Hudson Entertainment, Star Soldier R is a 2-level game
that features a tournament-style approach in its gameplay which
challenges players to achieve a high score with either a 2-Minute or
5-Minute Mode. Each mode offers quick and exciting gameplay and gives
players just enough time to play through each mode. The 2-Minute Mode
features one stage where gamers have 2 minutes to battle through one
action-packed level while fighting against one giant boss. In the
5-Minute Mode, players have five minutes to work their way through to
fight and defeat another boss through a second level. Though both
modes are time-limited, the added competitive and replay value for
players comes after they earn their scores, which they can post to the
in-game leaderboards and then check out how they compare with other
players in the region, nation, or even the world. The goal is for
players to replay the game over and over again to beat their high
score, improve their ranking, and discover different strategies in
order to earn bonus points in the 2-Minute and 5-Minute Modes. If they
can collect them all, they might have the honor of boasting the top
score in the world!
