Hay guys!
Here's the shooter I've been working on for a while, hope ya enjoy it.

Mouse/Arrow Keys: Movement
Z/Click: Main Weapon: Fast but weak.
X/Double-Click: Sub Weapon: Powerful but charges slowly.
C/Space: Bomb: Clears the screen.
Shift: Focus: Slows down your movement and shows hitbox.
P/Esc: Pause

If the game runs slowly, turn off the graphics stuff in the options.
Also, if you experience any problems with the keys sticking, just use mouse controls instead.

An engaging game with plenty of surprises.

When I played the first level, I had quite a bit of difficulty. The controls seemed slugging, even when using the mouse. I was afraid that I wasn't going to like this game. But after I got into it, bought some upgrades, then trained a bit on levels I had already finished, it actually got much easier. I've now gotten an A on the Survival level by reaching wave 86. My advice to other players is to ALWAYS READ the tips at the beginnings of the levels, because they make a big difference in stragegy and technique.

What I liked most:

* The characters you can play are quite different in their abilities, and each one has unique strengths and weaknesses that you have to practice. For example, the pharaoh boss was impossible for be to beat with Matt or Natalie, but relatively easy with Lance (I didn't try NoLegs, and I haven't unlocked Anna yet).

* Despite the previous, a single upgrade system controls the skills for all characters. This keeps the complexity down and further highlights the differences between the characters.

* Despite the enemies all being rather simple, the variation in their attacks is amazing. I'm constantly amazed by how creative the authors of "bullet hell" themed games get with enemy attacks, and this game is even a step beyond that!

* Bombs were also a good touch. I naively assumed that the bomb was a standard tool that worked the same for every character, but I've started experimenting with them more now.

What didn't work so well:

* As I said, I haven't unlocked Anna yet, so I have no idea what to expect there. I have beaten level 16 and unlocked only one bonus level, which I didn't do well on. In a game where characters have different dynamics, it's not a good idea to introduce new characters too late in the game, otherwise they become an afterthought. I probably wouldn't have tried out Lance if I hadn't been having trouble as mentioned earlier.

* The primary and sub weapons are a little tricky. Perhaps you might have tried a single gauge for both weapons, but that recharges faster? This would have encouraged players to conserve primary shots to build up a good sub weapon shot.

Overall, this is a great game with a lot of attention to detail and a lot of thought put into it. It's faithful to both the EBF storyline and the Bullet Hell playing style. I've already saved it to my favorites, and I intend to come back to it frequently.

Holy Shit this is awesome

Epic. Really hard, but is manageable if you train on earlier levels. So both easy and hard. Not a typical game. =)
