is it really?
I know the appeal of this game is that the bullets are supposed to come out to the rhythm of your song but it just doesn't seem like that's the case here. Using Dawn of Battle by Manowar is my prime example. In the middle of the song all instruments stop and there is a slow vocal part. Of course, this should mean the bullets slow down as well, but the rhythm of the bullets didn't change whatsoever. The other aspects of the game are pretty good, though I feel auto-fire would be a good choice. Yep.
Hi hitman1993, glad that you like the game overall! The syncing is partly due to balancing of the game to cater for a bigger audience. The music syncs a lot better in later stages where the bosses are harder. They fire more bullets and crazier patterns when given an intense track. Thanks for your suggestions, we'll look into them!
Was a good shooter...
But the bullets didn't seem like they where a response to the music, Advent Children One Winged Angel should have given me hell, but it felt like I was playing a shooter with it going the backround.
Hello Chemxial, thanks for playing! The patterns are easier at the earlier levels to cater for the not so advanced shmup players, later levels sync better with the music as they fire faster and more intense bullet patterns.
a nice, if slightly unoriginal concept, perfectly executed.
I'm guessing touhou was a major inspiration?
gameplay goes quite well with death metal
Hey Dekabutsu, great that you like it! We are great fans of awesome shmups classics, which of course includes Touhou! We drew inspiration from all kinds of games, and Touhou is definitely one of them. Thanks for playing!
That was so cool!
Excellent work. I played a lot of bullet hell games and I gotta say that this one was pretty good. I had no issues with the game at all and it went very smooth. All in all, good work.
Thanks nothingness525, great to know that you like Shmusicup!
