RayForce (also known as Layer Section, Galactic Attack, and Gunlock) is the first game in the Ray Series of games but is the middle one chronologically, as RayCrisis was the prequel. It was created in 1994 by Taito. This is reputed to be the first game to revolutionize the "two attack layer" system, where the player can shoot in two separate layers: the same level as the player and a lower level beneath the player. Subsequently, the player had to use two different weapons in order to attack enemies on those layers.
Following after the events of RayCrisis, Con-Human consciousness has been compromised and now the second phase of attack has begun. The new fighter RVA-818 X-LAY has been launched to dispatch the remaining aspects of Con-Human. It's objective is to enter the remnants of Earth and destroy Con-Human's core before it can gather enough potential to seek out and destroy the remaining human colonies. Unfortunately, if this last-ditch assault is successful and Con-Human is destroyed, the Earth will also be vaporized due to the massive influence that Con-Human constructed to fulfill its vengeful mission. This final mission is called, Operation RayForce.
