Rezon (レゾン?) is a 1991 horizontal scrolling shoot 'em up arcade game developed and published by Allumer. It is the first game created by Allumer under their label. It was modeled after Irem's 1987 arcade hit R-Type.
Taking place in the year 2191, the player pilots a recently developed space fighter, the SR-91, through six stages to defend the Earth from a two-year-long alien invasion. The SR-91 uses the VAWS (Variable Armor and Weapon System) which uses the Optica Weapon Arms. The Arms shield the ship from top and bottom attacks, provides back-up fire and using its Arm System can be positioned to fire in various angles depending on the current weapon. The SR-91 uses one of three different pick-up weapons: the red "Taikuu Laser", thin red beams that fire straight forward; the yellow "Ring Laser", yellow rings which can be aimed in all directions and provide good coverage; and the blue "Hansha Ball", blue spheres that can be also aimed in all directions and bounce off the walls. The only other pick-up items are Speed Ups and Speed Downs. Extends were set at the first 70,000 points and was added with every 80,000.
