Wow... featured! I never thought Echo Bullet can be at that good! Thank everyone so much!

UPDATE: (October 21, 2012)
-Added save function! The game will save automatic after each battle.
-Automatic scaling with SHOW ALL mode. (if you like EXACT FIT mode more please let me know. I'm confused to choose between two modes).
- Now the control system was fixed for both qwerty and qwertz keyboards. If you have any problem with the game control please let me know!
- Fixed issue when shooting in the start / tut scene.

- Zoom the game screen can reduce the difficulty. When you can easy see your hitbox and enemy bullets it will be pretty much easier! If you play this game in fullscreen I'm sure it will be better!
- Direct contact with bosses doesn't hurt you!

9 bosses, 30 waves of bullet hell are waiting for you. Go and let your eyes dizzy!

Please leave your feedback to help me improve my game. Hope you enjoy it! Thank you so much!

"I managed to make the first boss, spell 2 like that. I tried to make a nice looking pattern but easy enough for first boss so... I make a pattern with many bullet but have safe spots, the task of player in this spell is to find those spots.

And for me the boss 1 first spell is easy, you just need to move close to the boss, when it shoot, it's make a big gap between it and bullets.

I wish that I could record a video clip of my playing to show the tactics to beat all bosses. There are some patterns seem hard but the tactics to pass them are easier than others. Example for the boss 6 first spell, you just need to relax then keep at the bottom of screen and move inside two lines of bullet. On this way you can pass the spell without losing any life!"



Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

I enjoy bullet hell games, so I certainly had fun progressing through this game, but I really couldn't shake the feeling that there were a few things in the presentation that were "off" so to speak, and since I'm better at dwelling on issues than praise, I'll start with that.

The thing that seems to bother me the most is the hitbox; for some reason, it feels like the hitbox is a little too high since it isn't directly in the center. Perhaps it is the place where it makes the most sense to get hit, but it confuses me! (Especially since I don't like relying on being able to see it)
As I'm sure it's been pointed out already, the difficulty of the bosses in progression doesn't appear to be linear in direction; the first boss was more difficult than several of the bosses that proceeded him, in my opinion, and the difficulty of each attack seems to waver wildly. Using the last boss as an example, a couple of them are challenging, fitting for the final stage; a couple seem to rely on big bullets, and aren't very difficult before too long; the last one can either be a good endurance attack or a contest of how many lives are left when you get there, depending on which direction the influencing bullets take. In other words, the attacks are completely imbalanced! It'd be nice if you could mix things up a bit to make the difficulty a bit more sensible.
Also, you get twelve lives? That seems like both too many lives (in my opinion) and just a plain weird number to pick. (Does that total to the number of lives + bombs you start with in a Touhou game? :P) Not that I'm complaining. (I needed all of them)

Anyways, it was a fun experience regardless of some of its issues. The ship's maneuverability is fine, although a little fast for my liking; the attacks were interesting (even if some surprise you at first); nothing obscures the bullets when they get close to you; all in all, it's a fair game.
(Told you I'm not very good at praising people ;P)

Thank you so much for playing and feedback!
Twelve number has some personal sense with me so I use it a lot. You can think like it is my lucky number. :D

It was fun, and I think it's just me, but this game is too hard for my eyes. It's hard to focus on the enemy's attacks, and I can't even see where the spaceship is.


Rated 3 / 5 stars

This is a pretty good game.
My main issue is that I think I found a bug in the controls. Sometimes, when I was trying to move while firing, I would move a lot more than I would have expected (for example, I would quickly tap the right key and move half of the way across the screen). This is especially problematic for enemies like the 5th boss, because it makes getting out of the way of enemy fire impossible.
That aside, nice work with this game. Keep up the good work!

Two stars removed for having not only having arrow keys as the control for a bullet hell game, but also having the space ship move like it's on cocaine mixed with ice physics.

I like this game, it is a good game to be honest, the only problem is: it might miss a tutorial to teach you how to play the game. Honestly I guess some other people understand the game, but for the new ones (like me) it would be a good thing to add the tutorial, plus I do not know what to do in it
