This is a great little no-frills bullet hell shmup.

I wonder what it was ported from? Regardless it works as well with regard to the controls and gameplay as anything from CAVE, even. Which is good, because to get great scores you really need to be precise.

Again though, it is quite bare-bones in its approach, meaning no retina display and it's essentially just a series situations, not exactly boss battles...but more like you're just trying to survive the level (even though you more often than not seem to be staying in one place.)

Those who've enjoyed rRootage and ISUD should check this out.

Do you only dodge bullets? You don't shoot?

Correct. Really, the whole game seems to consist of scraping as much as possible. It's pretty minimalistic in that regard, but they do a lot with it.

Hmm, very interested in this one. I like the idea of bullet-dodging and chaining, so will probably grab it asap.

I quite liked BowMobile's Double Dragon version too.
