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

“...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!

i'm not a big shmup master, i've never eaten a touhou, but crimzon clover is a really awesome game. it's flashy, there are lots of explosions, and sometimes you're even the one causing them. also, it's got a really rad soundtrack and it's got an easy mode for babies and an arcade mode for manly people. if you enjoy shmups or you're interested in the genre and want a good introduction, you probably already have heard about and own this, but if you haven't and don't, i think you should!

I am absolutely horrible at bullet hell games, but this game is still incredibly fun even for a novice... That said, it also looks like someone went through the entire bullethell checklist and added them all into one game. Not incredibly inventive or original but immensly fun game for the PC when there are very few other games like it available on the platform.

CC:WI is an extremely addictive, fun and difficult ‎'Dōjin Bullet Hell' Game developed by Japanese Developer 'Yotsubane' released on the 6th of June, 2014.

I've got to say, The amount of fun you can have just by paying $9.99 AUD is astounding, The game is brilliantly put together; Every little detail to the game looks like it was worked on countless times to make it as good as it can be, The controls are amazing aswell, Being able to use a Controller or just your Keyboard to play the game. Whoever composed the music in the game deserves a hundred medals! It fits the mood of the game near perfectly and always helps to listen to when you are feeling down.
The only thing i'm dissapointed in with this game is the lack of levels, Having only 5 Levels does restrict replayability value somewhat.

The difficulty suits both Beginners and Seasoned Veterans of Bullet Games, The Novice mode is great for beginners and returning players looking to sharpen up and unlimited mode is perfect for Veterans with an extremely high difficulty factor.

My closing thoughts on the game are these:
CC:WI Is a brilliantly though of game with easy and challenging elements with a rocking soundtrack to boot.
While some game Settings are limited everything you need is there with the option to flip your screen sideways, Change keybinds, Switch between using a Controller or Keyboard and the usual Sound Options.
I would most definetely recommend this game to anyone looking to get into the Bullet Hell Genre and also recommend it to Bullet Hell Experts because this game will test even the greatest.

Game Design - 9.7/10
Game Soundtrack - 10/10
Game Options/Settings - 6/10
Replayability Value - 4/10
Difficulty - 4/10 -:- 10/10
OVERALL - 9.2/10

Best manic shooter on Steam, simple as. Some might argue for Mushihimesama, but for me Crimzon Clover edges it.
Great gameplay, good music and fine graphics, although it's a bit messy at times, with explosions and stars everywhere, but that's pretty much a genre staple. It also has decent variety with 4 different game modes (Original, Boost, Unlimited and Time Attack) and 4 different player ships.
The Novice difficulty is good for Beginners and isn't TOO easy, and on the other end of the spectrum you have Unlimited mode, which is pure bullet-cancelling INSANITY. Seriously, even if you suck, if you get this game, you must give Unlimited mode a try. It's crazy!

-One of the best shmup's you will ever play
-I stayed alive for 3.2 seconds
-A masterpiece of shapes and colours. Much like your fingers after playing it
-It's full of stars
-You will score a hundred million points for a few moments

-Rapidly pressing the pause button to maneuver your ship will not help you
-Creating a time machine and therefore stopping time for a moment will not help you
-Playing the game connected to a super-slow-motion camera will not help you
-If you a sensitive to flashing lights, stay away. Very far away
