EX -extra- is a vertical-scrolling shooter with two ships to choose from and five levels to play in total, featuring the usual array of power-up items and boss fights seen commonly in the Seibu Kaihatsu's Raiden series. Each ship is equipped with their own set of primary and secondary weapons, but by holding down both shot buttons together a powerful beam with a limited range can be fired instead.
Arcade veterans should be able to finish the entire game using just one credit, and extra lives are awarded whenever a player achieves a milestone score during the mission. There is no end sequence, and if you beat the final boss you will be sent back to replay the entire thing again from stage one without any noticeable increase in the difficulty level.
