Discover the grotesque nightmares of a little girl, trapped in her sleep, paralyzed by fear, who never seems to wake up. In the deepest parts of her subconscious, she sees Rem, a fierce fighter armed with a dragon-shaped demonic gun, fighting to defeat the forces that trap her.

Dodge, aim and shoot in 360 degree levels, gather enough power to unleash a wide explosion around Rem when surrounded by enemies as she drifts through beautiful hand-drawn landscapes of scares and fears. monstrosities of girl’s nightmares. Destroy the abominations that haunt his waking hours like dentists, angry dogs and going to school. Other enemies represent terrors more familiar to Japanese youth, such as the first boss, a radish monster representing the acquired taste of wasabi.

Each of the 80 levels loops until Rem collects all the souls, and each loop becomes more difficult if Rem cannot defeat his opponents in time. Fight over a dozen bosses, find out what lies at the heart of the girl’s subconscious and what could free her from this sleep paralysis.
