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!

Add Yotsubane to the glorious ranks of Cave, Atlus, Toaplan, Kaneko, Irem, Siter Skain, Eighting and their ilk. This game is truly bullet-hell; a term often attributed incorrectly to some ShMUps. Crimson Clover earns that monkier in every complex but fair pattern you scrape through, only to be taken out by a flurry of popcorn ships. Wonderful! Buy this if you want a beautiful, challenging shooty challenge. One of the best on Steam.

One of the best 'shmups I've ever played. Its a bullett hell that keeps usability in mind without sacrificing a high skill ceiling. Great for begginers and veterans of the genre alike.

Crimzon Clover WORLD IGNITION is a shoot 'em up (as know as Shmup or STG) game released worldwide for PC in 2014. Within the shmup genre, this game belongs to a sub-genre known as Danmaku or Bullet Hell, characterized by a gameplay fast, intense and frantic with the enemies "urinating" bullets all the time, defying dexterity and motor skills of the player who often have millimetric spaces to dodge the bullets and hit your enemies. Crimzon Clover was developed by a single person, Yotsubane, for five years and he really did a great job, because this game is great! very tasty and fun to play! Another highlight is the great soundtrack that fits perfectly in the game. To see me playing this game, please check the videos below:

First of all, I must say that I have played the Japanese original 2010 Windows version of Crimzon Clover for countless hours since its release and pretty much loved it. The game was flawless in every aspect: graphically stunning, highly challenging and most importantly, very well designed with great score / gameplay mechanics and sharp player controls.
The "World Ignition" version that just came out takes that great game and makes it even better, without changing its core that we, CC veterans loved. It now features more game modes, one extra ship, better graphics in higher resolution, TATE mode, plus many Steam goodies like Cloud, Achievements and Leaderboards. In my opinion, Crimzon Clover World Ignition is THE shmup of the decade and on no occasion should it be missed or ignored by gamers, shmuppers and non-shmuppers alike, that enjoy great video games made with care and attention by their dedicated developers.
Thumbs up, all the way!

Let's face it. This game is one of the very best in the modern shoot them up world. If you like Cave games, then you won't be disapointed. It's a sort of mixture between Ketsui (little timer while you have to score before it reach 0 again) Dodonpachi Daioujou or Saidaioujou (with a Break mode, similar of the Hyper system), 4 differents modes to play in Arcade version (harder), 2 in Novice version (easy).

Boost most is a mixture between super fast bullets like Mushihimesama Futari Original when you reach the highest rank, only the difference is, rank is at maximum already at stage 2 if you played good, didn't bomb or die. Adding super sonic fast suicide bullets on top of that.

Original would be a mixture of Mushihimesama Futari Maniac and Dodopachi Daioujou/Saidaioujou. Slower bullets but more busy partterns. In my opinion this is the "easiest" mode of the game.

Unlimited is not for beginner, extremely busy pattern all the time, nothing comparable to this, it's all about cancelling the bullet with your lock before the screen gots too busy. Euphoric, yet very very very hard.

A Time attack mode is also available, only one stage that you have to score as high as possible before the timer reach 0.

To resume, it's a fantastic game that you can play (sort of) cajually or with very complex strategy to optimise your score. Be warned, this game is really really difficult ;)

Oh My God it's full of stars

*baby floating in space to epic music*

The original doujin release of Crimzon Clover, which came out in Japan only in 2010, was nutso enough, with explosions and lasers galore, a shop where you had to buy continues, levels and even new ship types with in-game currency, and a punishing difficulty that set it apart from the other "bullet hell" shmups out there. WORLD IGNITION, a port of the later arcade release on NESICA coin-ops (again, only in Japan) takes that insanity and cranks it up to twelve - no, twenty.

Now, you don't need me to tell you how to play a top-down shmup, it's like sucking eggs, everyone already knows how it's done. What's different about CC is the Lock-On weapon radar, which locks on to any enemies within its radius and showers them with homing lasers/rockets/sniper bullets of Death (depending on the ship you're using) and the Break System, which amounts to filling a bar at the top of the screen by shooting down enemies. When it's full you can press a button to instantly power up all your ship's weapons for a few seconds, and the display of wanton laser-green devastation is nothing but impressive. But wait - fill the bar again while in Break Mode, and you can press the button again for (wait for it) Double Break Mode, which is like holding a lit match to Magnesium - the brightest lightshow seen in shmup history. It's also good for your score multiplier, too, which helps.

It's a pity that the original game's Shop mechanic never made it back in - it was one of the most original things about the game, and made it a meaty single-player experience, but this seems to be a faithful port of the arcade release, which obviously didn't have the shop, so I can see why it wasn't included. Ah well, the meat of the game is here, and oh so much more, so rest assured that you're getting your paltry entrance fee's worth and more. Better than Jamestown? Yeah, by miles. Better than Ikaruga, though?...I'll have to get back to you on that.

As someone who likes shooters, but never really had a taste for bullet hell, this is the most mechanically friendly and outright fun genre example that I've played.

Shooters are always a hard recommend to anyone who isn't already looking for one. It's a very niche style of gameplay that tends to play to a very small but dedicated fanbase. However, Crimson Clover makes for a great game to dip your toes into. The mechanics are easy to understand, and the difficulty curve is nice enough that it let's you come to grips with the game you are playing before it starts turning the screws on you. Yet it doesn't feel like an entry level game.

The graphics, gameplay, presentation. and soundtrack are all great. Maybe the only thing this game actually lacks is a co-op mode, but that's just a personal preference. At the price point the game is going for, I'd say pick it up if you are even the least bit curious.

This is one of the best shmups ever made. If you are familiar with the DoDonPachi series, then this game is similar to that. Pick this game up and Ikaruga, which are 2 of the highest quality shmups you will ever find available on Steam.
