Hello all,

Just wanted to share an early pre-alpha gameplay video of the new shmup that I'm working on. I'm trying to capture the feeling/style of the classic shooters of the 90's like Raiden/Strikers 1945.

There are no music yet but the soundtracks for this game is being created by BLANKFIELD, which does a lot of great touhou remixes. So even if the game turns out to suck, rest assured the music will rock!

ps. sorry about the video quality, it's recorded off of my iphone. Does anyone know of a good way of doing screen recording?

Ask Sanuku? He's good with recording stuff.

Most exciting indie bullet hell for iOS. Gameplay looks very good already!

Btw is that 1:1 relative touch I'm seeing?

*Edit: love the ship banking animations too! (not like I haven't seen it before, but it just looks cool!)

Looks great!

A personal thing for me is I'd prefer if the background and the enemies to be different color so you can better see the enemies. In Danmaku Unlimited, they're pretty similar in color to me so they kind of just blend into the background. Otherwise looking forward to this! =D
