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.

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 ).

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.

Minor tweaks.

Not bad, man. I've been trying to figure out how exactly to get the Golden Ship, and I haven't figured it out just yet. I thought it may have had something to do with beating the game without using a continue. Perhaps it's doing it without dying? Or even killing absolutely every enemy? One interesting thing I did notice, which I'm not sure is or isn't a bug (outside of the obvious ones) is selecting the boss rush instead of the next level selection for every level. Even beating the whole game like that didn't yield the gold ship for me, however.

Anyway, somethings I want to point out:

Bullets versus Explosions:
Because there are so many particles flying all over the screen from killing enemies from large packs, you literally stop being able to see the bullets. It's like a kind of sensory overload, and that's likely what the other complaints are regarding. Something a little more low-key for explosions or something a bit louder for the bullets would be the best bet here. I know you said you never played Touhou, and you should. You'd learn a lot about Danmaku and get some ideas on what will and will not work visually.

Enemies on the Rear:
Some of your waves with these things are just annoying. There are circumstances, even on the aggressive route, where I just can't kill the buggers because they actually take more than three or four shots to kill. When they're coming from two directions, or are meshed with one or two frontal waves, It gets downright silly trying to kill everything - and then my bonus multiplier goes down the toilet because of it. Worse still, these are the situations that are the most frantic, as well, blinding me entirely from what's going on.

And that's about it. I'll just kick back and enjoy my 1, 106, 230 point score now ;)

Good game, could use a new game plus feature or keep the power up you already obtained


Rated 4 / 5 stars

This game is a nice spin off, however we need an option to turn off all that glow so we can SEE what we're trying to dodge. Kind of annoying when you kill an enemy and the explosion glow blocks out a few bullets that are going to kill you >.>

Very nice. But it needs more level and the upgrades isn't enough.

It's just a short little game mate and we have to work within a budget so we have to draw a line somewhere. Thanks for playing, glad you liked it.
