A director Template:Nihongo thought there was no arcade-quality shoot'em up for Windows, he decided to create it. "To be honest, I'm doubtful that the direction of recent consumer shoot'em ups. I feel they desert their few fans. While this situation, I tried to create a work which attracted not only enthusiasts but also beginners.", he said.[5] He had already developed ALLTYNEX and submitted it to the 2nd ASCII Entertainment Software Contest.[10] He couldn't wait for its result, so he started developing the game.[11] It had been in development for 3 years because most part of the game, plots, programs, graphics and musics, were developed by him.[12] "I hardly worked for maiking it fun. The Locked-on system, a basis of the game, came from existing works, but it was important to move it into the new direction and add unique fun.", he said.[5] One journalist pointed out that the game was influenced by RayForce, Terra Diver, Battle Garegga, Radiant Silvergun and Thunder Force V.[5] Programs were initially written with Borland Delphi 2.0, later C++Builder with WinG library.[13]
