Boss Rush

Ever felt like bullet-hell shoot-em-ups weren't really all that fair? After all, you fight horrific bosses, capable of covering the screen with deadly attacks, while they absorb hundreds of direct hits in return. Meanwhile you seem to be stuck in a tiny fighter-craft made of tissue paper, with what feels like a pea-shooter for a weapon.

Well no more.

It's time to find out what life is like on the other side of the warning message.

It's time to be the Boss.


This is... interesting... to say the least. I have seen many bosses over the years with devastating power bullet hell wise. The hardest boss I have faced by far is stage 5 of danmaku legend II. The first one is ok (in all 3 phases). The second one... RIGHT out the gate hits you with the nastiest bullet pattern I have EVER seen. Anyway, through all the bullet hell games I have played, I never ONCE thought about being the boss. EVER. Gameplay wise plays almost like Frantic 2... except you are now the boss and the Computer is now the player.



For the ships to have lots of power ups is definitely unfair especially during the boss battle... Still great game though.


i always wanted to be the boss!

Can I order one that'll stop some plumbers?

Lol, great game, loved it.

If ANY one complains it is too slow or anything, then they clearly didn't know what it meant to be a mother ship. They are slow, tough and can give and take a beating, if it was faster it would ruin the concept. At first I didn't like the art style, but it grew on me. And I loved that odd sound effect for the 2nd motherships main wep. and most of all VARIETY! man if you didn't have it this game would be a snooze fest.

One other thing I think you did missed was not even mentioning all the grunts getting slaughtered in front of your mother ship. Hell I don't want to play as them, but I think it would be fun to show them getting torn apart or a few to help you (a carrier mother ship?)

Keep up good work and look fowerd to a sequel.
