Thanks for the heads up. Might be able to grab EspgaludaII this time around. I missed the last sale by an hour

I was thinking about trying out one of Cave’s shmups, so I tried the lite versions and I really loved it. Which one could you shmup pros recommend for a total noob in the genre? The only Cave game I have is Bug Panic but that’s a dual stick shooter (thrower?) - one of my favorite dual stick games, brilliant and difficult as hell, me like!

Favorites: The Quest Gold + expansions, Mission Europa Collectors Edition, Ascension, Jet Car Stunts 2, Junk Jack X, King of Dragon Pass, Kingturn series, Mecho Wars HD, Mini Dash, Mos Speedrun, Ravenmark, Sonic series, Fall of Angels, Highborn, Solomon’s Keep / Boneyard, pixel art games, remakes and ports of classic games.

I'm not a bullet hell pro by any means, and I only have Deahsmiles and Bug Princess... To me, Bug Princess may be a really good choice for Bullet Hell noobs. There's 3 game modes (different bullet patterns and slightly different scoring manner), and 4 difficulty levels per game mode. If you browse the Bug Princess thread or glance at Vally's Bug Princess guide in the general discussions thread...it sounds like Bug Princess is much simpler in terms of scoring mechanics.. This lets me focus more on playing and surviving for fun. I definitely prefer Bug Princess to Deathsmiles for my *bullet hell* experience.

I don't have Espgaluda nor Dodonpachi though, and while those 2 sound like they are also good..the scoring mechanics sounds too complex to me for *my taste* so hats why I didnt get them. It's just my preference though... Feel free to join the Bullet Hell group and ask people for advice!


Edit: Forgot to mention...I also have Bug Panic, and between bug Panic, Bug Princess and Deathsmiles...I love Bug Panic by far! But I'm more of a duel stick shooter person. =D
