I've never heard of this game...anyone know if it's any good? I decided to post this because of it being a SHMUP, its tiny file size, and the screenshots.

ha... meant to post this earlier...

Nice little shmup with some interesting scoring mechanics. Definitely worth checking out if you're up for some pretty fast score-chasing gameplay.

There's a lite version if you wanna check it out beforehand.

Yeah, I just DL'ed the lite, but haven't had a chance to try it out. BTW, I was hoping you would pop by this thread and chime in

I might just need to buy this to support the devs who still manage to produce visually arresting games that take up less than 20 Megabytes.

I only played for about 30 seconds, but this bears a strong resemblance to the games of that Japanese indie SHUMP maker who made Noiz2a, among others. I used to have all of his games on my PC, the oldest must date back to 2000 or 1999 or so.

And yes, I'm aware that some of his work has been ported to touch devices.
