This game is extremely difficult , fun , irritating , and will make you swear more than a sailor all at the same time while restarting every 5 mins due to a cheap death , but funny thing is you won't be able to help it , it is very very addictive even with all the cheapness flying about.
Good variety of characters to pick from , each with it's own ability.
Good variety of weapons to blow things apart with provided you can live long enough to find one.
Monsters galore !
Bullethell in some levels.
Life counter needs to be reworked ( IMO ) 1 hit from anything other than a normal bullet is instant death. Example ,
Purple sword ninjas sometimes thrown at you en masse always kill you in 1 hit , had crystal with 14 life get dropped in 1 slash. Starting life should be doubled at the very least or check enemy damage output. Also on a side note , even doubling life in MOST cases will still result in death 95% of the time anyways.
Traps hurt you and not enemies , but you can blow yourself apart as well with your own weaponry , seems kinda lopsided but hey it's still fun.
Seems like any character you pick you need to carry at least 1 melee weapon on you to deflect incoming rounds in some boss rooms , unless you are a pro at games like Danmaku 2 that is...
With all this being said and as much as this game royally ♥♥♥♥es me off sometimes I just can't help but play it and recommend it to everyone , buy it , load it up grab some snacks and get ready to swear and get ♥♥♥♥ed while having a ****ing blast at the same time.
