The legend of Gaurodan, the bird of thunder and his fight against Guayota, the fire beast was forgotten centuries ago. But today, Guayota's egg has been discovered inside Mount Teide. Now it's a matter of time before Gaurodan returns from the skies to combat his ancient enemy and punish humans for bringing it back.

The game

Gaurodan is a free-scrolling horizontal shmup with the spirit of a mid 80's arcade game.
Fly over the Canary Islands and destroy cities, armies and giant creatures. Controlling Gaurodan requires some practice, as his advance is constant and his attack must be oriented to hit ground or air targets. You have a single health bar for the entire game, so playing gracefully from the beginning will help you in the final stretch of the game.
