“Suguri takes a different approach and provides a means for the player to fly past bullet patterns, making it more accessible to casual and newer players. Suguri's defining feature is its dash ability; with it, players can go through beam projectiles without taking damage and charge up their super meter for explosive attacks. If you try to dash through solid projectiles like missiles and bombs, however, you would be stopped dead in your tracks and take damage. This, in addition to a heat gauge that will overheat when the player dashes too much, prevents players from abusing the feature and go through the game dashing nonstop.”

“And as you make progress with Suguri, you’ll find yourself unlocking many weapons to choose from. Suguri can equip two weapons, and you can set them as Weapon A and Weapon B. The main difference between A and B is that A can be used for normal attack as well as the Hyper attack; and B can only be used for normal attacks.” ... ” A good combinations of weapon equipment which complements the player’s skills will be the key to beating the levels. It almost feels like a puzzle, which is a plus for a shooter game.”
Gamers Route

“The original Suguri serves as a primer to the gameplay of Acceleration of Suguri in many ways.”

i played this game years back and like before, this is a worth buy. unlike many bullet hell games, this game use a heath bar than one hit kill and you can dodge the bullets by dash through them but won't work on misses. there many weapons to get, like the beam sword, a huge gun that fires a huge laser and so on. the boss fights are great and fun and the soundtrack....oh god that sexy soundtrack. the music fits the game so well.

no cons.

buy it if you like bullet hell games.

Seeing I finally beat stage mode, and can complete 5/7 stages in arcade mode I feel like I can finally recommend this. I don't like shmup's but I loved this game. I enjoyed this more than acceleration although both are fantastic games. I recommend this to anyone who likes a games with a lot of challenge yet are still very fair. Reminds me of Dark Souls in this sense. Really cool character design and an awesome soundtrack. Go buy this.

95 hours later, I remembered I do not have a review for this.
Unlike most shoot em ups, SUGURI is surprisingly easy to get into. Even for the people that do not typically enjoy shoot em ups for more than 2 hours such as myself. So unless you really hate the shmup genre, I believe you should buy it.

SUGURI is a type of game that theoretically should have no replayability, there's no randomisation in game outside of boss moves. All enemies come in the same order every time. And is the type of a game I normally abandon without ever finishing. However, the music and the game mechanics make it stand out rather well from traditional shmups and keep it enjoyable to play even after you've completed the game.

At the core, it does not differ much at all from a traditional shmup : Start a stage, enemies come from the right, you use a weapon to blow them up, then comes the midboss and finally the stage boss. Defeat that and continue doing this until the end of the game with minor variations to that formula. Except you have health instead of lives.

The difference comes from the fact that the game includes two types of projectiles, I am not sure how they're actually called but I just call them solid and non-solid for ease of understanding.
The way it goes is that Suguri, the same-named protagonist of the game has the ability to dash, which allows her to completely avoid non-solid projectiles and charge her Hyper attack meter. Dashing also increases her heat which on a direct percentage amount increases the damage she receive (eg 5% heat you will receive 5% more damage). This and the solid projectiles prevent you from using dash all the time to be completely invincible.

Suguri herself carries two weapons (out of total 16) of your choice into battle, and when her hyper attack meter has built up, can use it to deliver a powerful attack with either of the two weapons. Hyper attacks replace bombing that you normally have in a shmup. Although, while it gives you short temporary invulnerability, it does not clear projectiles.

What makes this game so special for me is the complete freedom you have where the larger enemy fights don't have a real timer set over how long you're going to be fighting them for. You think you can kill something in 5 seconds? Go ahead and try, if you do not die in the process you might just pull it off. Alongside the ability to experiment with different ideas of what might or might not work with the weapons you chose.

And then there's the music, I can't find words for how much I like the music. While obviously not the type of music for everyone, it is really enjoyable.


As fun as this game is, there are some flaws, three of these being steam release exclusive and one is a general flaw with the game :
  • The game does a rather poor job at communicating with the player over what is or isn't dangerous the first time you play it.
  • Playing this with a lengthy name or a name with quite a few unique characters WILL cause you to crash at the end of stage.
  • Rather weird achievement situation. Right now, it is impossible to 100% the game achievement-wise. As one of the achievements does not unlock. Alongside that, achievements sometimes do not unlock or unlock only after you watch a replay of yourself unlocking said achievement.
  • Your actual save file is not actually synced with steam cloud so upon switching computers, game reinstall or system wipe, you will have to reunlock the game again

Although, despite not really a flaw. One minor oddity is that for some reason, the Story mode and the first option of the game (Complete a stage, unlock the next one to play at your will) was renamed to Stage Select upon localisation. While Arcade (Play all stages consecutively in one go) was moved to be the first option of the game.

It would be a real shame if fans of the shooter genre passed this one over as being too generic, or too similar to Touhou/Cotton/CAVE/etc games, because it has its own flavor that's really unique. Rather than simply firing in a straight line, or at fixed angles, in SUGURI, your character -- the eponymous Suguri -- actually aims at targets directly, with a simple lock-on system, and depending on the weapon, she has to pause briefly to fire.

This completely changes the dynamics of the game, with enemies doing the same, as well as firing rapid-fire homing attacks! I'd be lying if I said SUGURI is a difficult game, because it's much more than that -- as a danmaku veteran I was getting destroyed on Normal! Excellent timing, clever use of the grazing dash, and mastery of both of your equippable weapons are all required to win in SUGURI.

At the time of this review you can pick up SUGURI and the fighting-game sister title Acceleration of SUGURI for just five dollars together, which is an absolute steal for two inventive and fun games that will run on any computer, anywhere. I highly recommend both titles.

Suguri is, as you probably have gathered by now, part of the Bullet Hell subset of Shoot 'em Up's, but a very unique take on it.

You're given a lot of freedom in movement, thanks especially to the dash mechanic, which has the added bonus of allowing you to dodge certain bullets. None of the stages dragged on too long, and they actually seem to get shorter with each passing stage. You have a large range of weapons to choose from, but you only start out with three of them; the more you try the stages, however, you unlock more weapons.

The story is simple, but it's actually pretty good; the characters all seem unique, thanks in part to their fights, but you don't see too much of their personalities until the sequel, Acceleration of Suguri. The art is also a bit simple, but it did grow on me; the sprites on the other hand look amazing, with the enemies sharing a distinctly different style compared to the chibi-esque style of you and the bosses.

The music, on the other hand, is overall a bit above average; while there were certainly standouts, namely the final boss and the entirety of Stage 4, the rest is pretty good at best.

Oh yeah, and this game is insanely hard. On my first playthrough, I could only manage Easy Mode, and even then it took me quite a few hours just to beat it. After getting more accustomed to how the game worked, though, I did finally manage to beat Normal Mode; it did take me a bit longer than it should have, however, thanks to my save data getting corrupted (I still don't know how, either).

Overall, if you're looking for a difficult game that takes a while to get used to, but is a blast once you do, I would easily recommend it; it's easily become one of my favorite Shoot 'em Up games I've played, though I do still prefer its sequel.

Oh lordy lord. how I love this game. This is one of only a few game that I find fun aswell as being as hard as Conans pecks. I don't usualy play bullet-hell games, but when I do, I make sure that they are good. Fast-paced and rediculously difficult, I have not stopped playing this game since I bought it. If you love bullet-hell games, play it, get addicted and test how much torture your mind can take befor it starts to slowly leak out your ear.

It is fun and definitely a tad challenging. Sometimes there is just a bit too much going on the screen to be considered fair, but nothing that can't be overcome. For the price, it is definitely worth looking into.

It's pretty much the Suguri game on steam. Nothing new to it, but it's still fun. It feels a little dated compared to the later OJ games like Sora, but unlike Sora it has an English release that isn't utter garbage.

This is a side scroller but my controls are broken, seems alot of people are experiencing issues where the game doesnt go diagonal. Kind of important in a side scroller shooter to be able to dodge all the stuff on screen. So this is kinda unplayable. Get the sequel where the controls are also broken but you dont need diagonal really since its a fighting game. This game looks real fun but I'm missing out sadly due to the controls not working T_T

(This game works great with Dinput controllers like a Sega Saturn Controller, but not with Xinput controllers like Xbox controllers, updates are being applied, so maybe it just a matter of time or coffee or both?)

Rating with Dinput controller: 10/10 Value: $?.??
Rating with Xinput controller: 0/10 Value: $0.00
