Elk’s Review of Diadra Empty
Rockin' Android are known for bringing a ton of awesome unique Japanese games to the West that would almost assuredly not get picked up and brought stateside. If you frequent our site you've probably seen our Cloudphobia review, also from Rockin' Android. And as it was a unique Shoot-'em-Up (also known as a shmup) with some interesting game design choices, so too is the game we're talking about today, Diadra Empty, developed by Frozen Orb.
