Video games started with arcade games, and they could be played on coin-operated machines. With the mass production of computers, the arcade games made their way into people's homes. Warblade is a shoot'em up game in which you control a spaceship. You must survive waves of alien ships and earn coins along the way. The story behind the game is sketchy. You are a spaceship pilot and you must kill enemy combatants while dodging their bullets. The gameplay is standard for this type of game; you can move left or right and you can shoot with various weapons. Warblade does not allow you to move using up or down, meaning you are stuck on the bottom of the screen. This makes it hard to avoid shuttles coming from behind you. The difficulty curve is smooth and you can change the levels. The enemies come in waves and you can shoot them only while they are on screen. For a limited period, they will be static, which means easier targeting. The controls are customizable, so you can adapt them to your gaming style. Various bonus items help you increase your firepower.
