Who made it?

Seibu Kaihatsu (セイブ開発) made the original game in like 1988. It has since been succeeded with many sequels, and although imitated, in our opinion, it's never been matched. Brought to North American arcades originally by FabTek. The home versions were published by many different companies, including Atari, Electro Brain, Sony US, Micronet and others.
Seibu Kaihatsu has made a few other games, most notably Viper: Phase 1 and a highly recommended puzzle game called Battle Balls (Mezase Senkyuoh).
What's the Big Deal?
This game is the seminal vertical shooter. Decent graphics combined with memorable music and a stunning number of bullets combine to make it the game other shooters strive to equal.

How many Raidens?
Quite a few! The arcade game has five sequels, as well as at least one spiritual sequel. There are at least ten home versions covering just about every platform remotely capable of the extreme number of sprites required.
