XDR (エックス・ディー・アール), short for "X-Dazedly-Ray", is a 1990 shoot-'em-up by UNIPACC released for the Sega Mega Drive exclusively in Japan.

Story

The warlord Guardia was banished from the planet Sephiroth, otherwise known to be a very peaceful planet. Many years later, he returns, complete with an entire army which overpowers the Guardian army, leaving one hope: the newly developed XDR craft.

Gameplay

A shoots. Rapidfire is an option "AUTO" under the "CONTROL" option in the Options menu. Higher auto fire rates can be achieved with autofire enabled controllers. The game has no bullet limiter, so shots are fired until the game slows down and sprite flickering appears C changes speed; the current speed is shown in the HUD. 4 speed are available. Powerups are collected as in other shmups, except that missiles can also be collected, in limited quantities, and fired with B. These crawl along the floor and ceiling until they hit a target
