It remindīs me of Ikaruga.

Oh wow, a sequel?

I'm so playing this.

I don't know how to say this, but that was kind of...easy (and I was playing intense mode). It's somewhat dissapointing, given the murderous Uncharted-grade difficulty curve these titles usually have.

Ok, got to the 4th level on 'Frantic' difficulty.
Not really so hard.

But Gods, there were a lot of bullets...

RAND00M:

Was going to say that. An easier version of Ikaruga or Touhou.

Frantic mode is fun.

Fun stuff. Thanks for putting it in the spotlight.

Well, it was amusing. Really amusing.

Nothing as a frantic soundtrack to pump your blood.

It came out just a few days after the first one was on the Summer E Games.

Indeed there are. Try doing the Boss Rush mode on Frantic. You won't know whether to stare or dodge. The Boss Rush mode is in Extras.

after my epileptic attack i rushed back, thanks funk, i stopped using kongregate shortly after the summer games and for some reason i have yet to stumble it.
thumbs up.

Why does the music remind me of touhou? Sounds like a remix, but i cant place it. Wait, Marisa......(marisa theme) dang it. ahh and the bonus attack looks like master spark.

anyway, decent game.

edit: bosses die to quickly, even last ones (on frantic). But overall, good paterns and good bullet to hitbox ratio, so who am i to complain.

I really like it. The scraping mechanic is particularly interesting.

i beat it on frantic not that hard

You spend too much time on Kongregate, you should explore Armorgames.

you rolled a one:

Well, look at mister I-eat-bulluts-for-breakfast here.

I only got to level three on the first episode on frantic. I gave up on trying work out where I was supposed to shoot at and just aimed at moving around the bullets. Which I failed at. : (

Frantic is vastly imporved by wailing power metal.

AH, I already know this. I love the Frantic mode.

Kind of fun, but it does get a bit boring after a while.

I've noticed that sometimes, the boss's bullets are replaced by $1000 coins instead of $10 coins. This happened to me on both bosses of the last level of episode 2, letting me end with over $400k (that I could not use). What's the trigger for this happening?

It's to tease you. Because you can't use it. But at least you feel rich.

We've done plenty of Armorgames games in the past.

This game really makes me ask: "Will that particular tiny dot kill me, or am I supposed to pick it up?"

At least the hours of playing Touhou is finally paying off. Thanks for this!

Fun little game.
Farthest i got on frantic difficulty was level 4 (In episode 3).

One thing: You can actually make all enemy bullets the same color in the options menu.
(For those that just jumped in and confused bullets and powerups. ^^)

Yes, but the links always link to the Kongregate website.

...no, not really :/ Sometimes, but we usually link to Armor.

Thanks Rane2k for the tip on making all of the bullets the same color. That helps my score a lot! This is definitely a fun and addicting game. It's not relaxing at all though, that's for sure! As the review mentions, the rock soundtrack is definitely fun to listen to as well. It sounds surprisingly good in my headphones for a browser game! This is an addicting game, but now I want to go play something relaxing like Solitaire...
