Irem’s legacy

Let us take a moment to appreciate the gaming legends behind the Irem collection. Irem was a true pioneer in the golden era of Japanese gaming, and yet they’ve remained largely under the radar. Why, you ask? It’s because they’ve designed games that are geared towards a very niche audience: hardcore gamers who look for the ultimate test of their skills. Irem cranked up the difficulty to insane levels, pushing players’ reaction speed and quick thinking to the limit.

In this incredible Volume, you’ll be tasked with surviving epic dogfights in “Image Fight,” battling your way through intense scrolling battlefields in “Image Fight 2,” and obliterating alien parasites in the heart-pounding frenzy of “X-Multiply.” The stakes are high, the challenges are brutal, and the rewards are high!

Image Fight

In the future, Aliens have destroyed bases on the moon and begun an offensive against other military space areas. To combat this threat, humankind has built a spaceship called the “OF-1 Daedalus” that is meant to destroy the Alien invasion. Each pilot goes through a rigorous training process before officially boarding the OF-1 Daedalus to defeat the invaders and earn eternal glory.

The game introduces new alien invaders who return after three years of peace, making the sequel even more challenging. Become pilot Show in the new OF-3 Garuda spaceship and fight off alien invaders to save the world. This sequel promises improved animations, detailed lore (learn more about pilot Show and his family), new visual scenes, and a timeless soundtrack by Takashi Hiyamuta and Hiroshi Kimura.


In the year 2249, a mysterious disease devastated the human population of the planet Stan. Scientists discovered that alien parasites had taken over people’s bodies, so they created microfighters to battle this biological warfare and save humankind. In this game, you control a miniature ship in a body that gets infected by alien parasites and utilizes tentacles as both a weapon and a shield to destroy the parasites before they can annihilate the host’s body.

And that’s not all! For all the games, we have included Online Leaderboards and global Rankings. If you are looking for a real challenge, this is your call!
