Boss Rush

Author Comments

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.

i liked the idea of you are the boss :V

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!
