From 8ing ("Eighting"), a vertical shooter pretty strongly reminiscent of Raizing's "Brave Blade" (see entry 773), particularly in terms of the PS1-ish 3D graphical style. It doesn't have the medal-juggling of that title, thankfully, but for some reason I still didn't care for it much. The ground wobbles funny below your ship when you criss-cross the screen, for one thing,, I don't know, I just wasn't that impressed.
You get plenty big enough guns, certainly, and lots of wingmen. But other than that it didn't feel particularly special to me in any way. Maybe I'm just dead inside.

Oh wait, was this the game where you pick up point powerups of logarithmically-increasing amounts, until you miss one and then the amount resets? I think it may have been. Better than Brave Blade's constant active juggling, but still somewhat confining.
