Reviews

“Eye-meltingly ridiculous, and surprisingly enough that actually works. It's wild. This is really, really fun.”
TotalBiscuit

“...when an indie developer [...] comes along and manages to out-shmup the King of shmups, people stop and take notice. That’s the case with Crimzon Clover.”

“Bullet Hell action at its best.”

About This Game

Prepare yourself for an insatiable rain of bullets, bombs, and beams in Crimzon Clover. From Japanese indie developer YOTSUBANE, AdventurePlanningService, this unique top-down shooter is a wild ride you won't want to miss out on.



Your first step in Crimzon Clover: World Ignition is as simple as choosing how you want to play, and which powerful ship will be yours to command. Choose your difficulty from ARCADE (true to the original arcade game) or NOVICE (better if these are your first step in the world of hardcode SHMUP) then choose your mode from Boost, Original, Unlimited, and Time Attack.

Original is THE main mode, where you blast your way through stage in search of the last boss. Boost Mode will adjust the difficulty based on how proficient you are at devastating your enemies. Unlimited turns each stage into an intense battlefield of bullets that only the most hardcore players will be able to survive. Time Attack pits you against the clock as you race to make the best score possible in about 3 minutes.



Take the role of a skilled pilot in the fight to destroy massive waves of enemies while dodging their unending rain of bullets. Each of the three ships has their own style of standard firing and a unique appearance. The firing style is translated beautifully as you amp your way into Break Mode and Double Break Mode! As you blast through your foes in each stage you can collect stars that will raise your score. Each enemy destroyed helps fill your Break Meter, which allows you to wipe the screen with powerful bombs or, if you have the patience, blast off into Break Mode to add a huge boost to your firepower and let you rip through enemies with ease. That's not the extent of your strength though, as having a full Break Meter while in Break Mode will allow you to enter the ultimately destructive Double Break Mode. Watch your enemies crumble in fear as you turn the tide and fill the screen with your own hellacious rain of firepower!


Having a tough time to clear the game using no continue? No worries. Hit up the Training screen to set up your own scenario using your choice of mode, ship, stage, and freely customize other variables to practice the fight for survival. Training doesn't seem like a bad idea after you see what the enemies are capable of. Can you pilot your craft through the bullet massacre the enemies have prepared for you? Find out as you play Crimzon Clover: World Ignition!

Crimzon Clover WORLD IGNITION is an interesting arcade-type vertical scroller where you pilot one of three powerful ships and take on wave after wave of enemies and bosses, each level. The action is intense for a shooter, but it looks good and the ships are easy to control. Your main guns, bombs, can lock on to targets, use breaks when your gauge is filled, and more. Released in 2011 as an Arcade game and in 2013 for the PC, Crimzon Clover is a fun game as far as shooters go.

Hot damn is this game great.

If the glory days of Toaplan and Cave are what you're after, this is as good as it gets.

If you're familiar with the genre, this is as solid as you can get a frenetic, dizzying bullet-hell title.

If you're not familiar with the genre, buckle down and get ready to learn how bad you are at shooters because this game doesn't joke.

To start with, I actually come from this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1RbVtKU05o
Watched only a bit, then left. Watched again, then maybe wanna try.
By coincidence, there is Steam Doujin Sale. Picked up plus Soundtrack.
Played "a bit".
Never looked back since then.
Probably best played with Arcade Stick (or play the NESiCA ver), but keyboard works just fine.
Also, potechi best music.

Bullet-hell shooters are like the chocolate chip cookies of gaming: the look the same from the outside, and there's a ton of variety, but a good chocolate chip cookie can bring so much more to the experience if the right amount of love and the right quality of ingredients are blended together. With that said, Crimzon Clover: WORLD IGNITION is the triple fudge dark chocolate chip cookie made with golden wheat flour, fresh eggs and just a little bit of cayenne pepper to bring out the depth of the chocolate.

I don't delve too far into bullet-hell shooters, but once in a while I absolutely crave these little morsels of gaming, and when the craving takes over I need a good shmup to take me over and Crimzon Clover: WORLD IGNITION has enough deep mechanics, great style, and hand cramping, pants crapping moments to scratch that itch one-hundred times over and still have me begging for more.

If you're at all interested in Crimzon Clover: WORLD IGNITION, and I assume that if you're on this page that you are, then buy this game! You'll be helping a Japanese indie developer and getting a crazy-fun rollercoaster ride of bullets!
