Great Bullet Hell Shmup for PC/OS X/Linux

by HeavyMetalMe Thu Mar 27, 2008 7:04 pm

I was gonna put this in the download section, but decided to go straight to the source- you shmuppers. I don't know much about this, considering the page is in japanese, but its a neat little game. It's basically a bullet hell game that can last even a few seconds. Definitely give it a try. I downloaded it for OS X and it came with an English translation, so hopefully that goes for the other OSs as well. Here's the link and a screenshot...

My best so far is 31 seconds. This little guy seems like a good way to work on your reaction time.

Hmm, I should have thought it through a bit more before I post it, but it's not exactly a shmup. But I still believe it belongs here. Granted, there is no shooting, but there aren't bullet hells in many other games that I know of. Still, enjoy!

That's one I've been meaning to play. Shit, I'm gonna go snag it now. If you scroll through the menu of that download, there is an options menu where you can turn on the english translation.

There are way too many doujin shooters to keep up with. Thanks for posting.

It reminds me of the one called Fuzetsu.

It's a Java game and it is only 4kb in size! You can play it with a mouse if you want...or keys I suppose. The closer you get to the boss' bullets, the more bullets you will send back. I get so addicted to this simple little game.

That fuzetsu is awesome thanks for the link!

Highest score so far is 276341. I keep slipping with the mouse and dying by accident. The mouse control reminds me of those electronic buzzer games where you had a loop of metal that you have to guide round a maze, if it touched the maze it buzzed. I used to rock at those games when I was younger. I have very little wrist wobble and very good hand high coordination :D
