Super UFO Fighter

Do you know the UFO catcher? These claw machines that allow you to get nice rewards are a real Japanese institution and a must for any self -respecting tourist. But the developers of VV-LABO offer us here a diversion that is interesting to say the least. Super UFO Fighter is a mix between an action game, a UFO catcher and UFO fights (proper UFO in English). Facing another player or the computer, you need to get as many items as possible and drop them on your base. But of course, it’s not easy because your opponent can attack you so you slow down and get the most points.

This Rune Factory 5 will take you to the border town of Rigbarth, where you, as a SEED sentinel, must maintain peace and balance.
