    Here's a link to a demo of the 11th version of the famous Touhou shooters...if you haven't played them before...you're in for a ride. I myself am not a fan of animes that much anymore but there's something about these shooters that draws you in. Check it out if you haven't yet.

    Controls:

    Z = shoot
    X = bomb (hitting a bomb at the moment of death saves life)
    Shift = slow down movement, show the hitbox and focus weapon
    Arrows = Move
    Esc = Pause

    Thanks a lot.
    I've been playing this on hard for a real fun challenge. Lunatic is too damn fast and normal is too slow for my tastes. I only JUST got past the second boss.

    Its not very good.

    Play the first 8 Touhou games instead. Much better.

    You are actually right Urza...the first 8 Touhou games we much better...but its always nice to have a refresher every once in a while... [​IMG]

    My favourite by far is Imperishable Night...I just thought it was perfect from beginning to end.

    It takes like 6 minutes to play through all the levels.

    Other than the ridiculously short gameplay time, it does have some of the better mechanics of the Touhou series.

    Personal choice would be PCB.

    Judging by my attention span I think 6 minutes is well enough [​IMG]

    I just kind of find it a pity at the way the Touhou series has gone...but looking it at from an objective point of view...its still one of the most fun and challenging series. That is...until Gradius 6 comes out...omg...I wish Konami would announce it soon...

    The world needs more shoot em' up games...its a dying genre that I would wish would return.

    I did play Castle of Shikigami on Wii recently...seems like a cheap Touhou ripoff....it made me cringe...but I still played it.

    I only played Imperishable Nights, and I got to the point where I got a 6bil score in the extra mode. >_>
