We've taken all the popular features from the original "casual" bullet hell DN8, the evolving power-ups, being able to select your own path, the random soundtrack and pushed them forward with the use of stage3D*.

Also new to this version are unlockable perks, along with more challenges than before.

Enjoy the destruction.

*The game defaults to 30fps to enable it to run on the widest majority of machines. If you've got a good graphics card please go to Options > Graphics and knock it up to 60.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to using stage3D ( ie GPU Acceleration ) this won't work on all machines. If it doesn't work on yours please accept our apologies in advance for your wasted time.

v1.1:
Hi-scores display
Perk bug fixed
If the GPU isn't compatible, software mode still allows you to play the game ( Although it won't be great ).

v1.2:
Medals should be fixed ( Sorry about that ).
Suicide kills no longer work on bosses ( Thanks everyone who pointed that out ).
Experimental fullscreen mode. It only allows mouse controls, and space to pause. This is more GPU heavy so in some cases performance may be reduced.

v1.3
Minor tweaks.

Awesome game. I always used to hate this type of game because I wasnt very good at it, but you made it fun and gave it a learning curve. I just beat the game <--easy mode lol my favourite part was the boss rush, freaking insane!! 5 stars :D

Excellent, that's great to hear, thanks.

Yeah "Proper" bullet hell shooters are just pattern learning and painfully hard. We wanted a ton of bullets but to give you a chance, there's no point making a game that only a handful of people can complete.

I agree a lot with SHfan84 and psymagic's review of this game. It's really an improvement of the former game, and I enjoyed it a lot.

I would definetly play this again, if I get the mood for shooting around. I also like that the difficulty isn't insane like it is in so many other bullet hell games, because I don't want THAT much frustration. I'm a casual gamer, regarding bullet-hell games.

It's not the best game, it could use minor improvements, however I give it 5 stars because it actually lives up to its purpose and expectations.
