this is the coolest game i have seen

I really enjoyed this game! beat the main story on my first try, as well as the extra stage, haven't beaten the phantasm yet or any of the additional challenges. (died on the second to last spell-card of the phantasm, its prob cus I didn't use many bombs and instead just focused on the graze breaks for main defense.) (I very much like the HP approach to the game compared to the official touhou games, it's different and allows you to go more crazy in the game in terms of difficulty and not have it be too painful for the players.)

The music kind of grew on me the more I listened to it, at first I didn't like it but the songs just kept getting better lol favorite song was the stage 3 B theme its jammin' hard!

Alot of the art could be changed up tho/ done a bit better but it still looks really good in its style,
only real complaint about the art is when swapping from Sanae and allice its a bit jarring since Sanae uses a sprite while Alice is an original artwork. (oh that and marassa's foot in the phantasm stage, looks really off...)

I also really did like the story of the game, when playing i didn't shoot at Marassa because I didn't feel like she deserved to be punished if it was a mistake, tho Alice had other plans...
(Oh by the way I've been playing this from like 3:50 AM to 5 AM lol, what an amazing time to focus on bullet hell gameplay)

(Ps do you upload your music somewhere? I'd love to check more of it out/ listen to it on free time!)

(Hope your games in unity are just as good as your games you've made in scratch, this is godlike!)

Thanks for playing and writting this! I have uploaded some of my older music tracks here if you are interested: https://scratch.mit.edu/studios/30529793/
Sadly I have yet to finish my first unity game, but it is progressing. I am still focused on making games with scratch untill I finish university and have more time to learn how to make better games. I will consider your feedback in my future projects.

I was quite suprised by the game being made in Scratch, but i actually liked the game and had a good time with it (even tho Alice's player sprite looked a bit odd to me at first).
It was still fun tho.

This is really good for a scratch game
