I know the game is good because it has that "1 more go" effect. I just wish some things would be tweaked a little bit. exactly

I also rotated the monitor yesterday (took an hour) :awe: It really is lovely in proper 9:16 full screen! not playing in TATE should be punished !

@Rocco, do you remember how this played last year when it was setup in your arcade event?
I couldn’t play it :( I was very busy
But I have a little video of Jaimers playing it

OK, this is starting to click now. My advice is to play the score attack with auto bomb off.

Stage 1 - easy

Stage 2 - mid boss strategy - stick to the bottom right with a charge 5 bomb. Release bomb and slowly move to the left. This should quickly charge the bomb. Now slowly move left to right and bomb spam as quickly as it charges.

Stage 3 - surprisingly easy stage and very nice patterns. Boss is easy with bomb spam.

Stage 4/5 - nowhere near :p

if you stay in a direction with the stick (left or down or up or right) before press start you have a surprise :awe:

it is slightly annoying (very hard to ignore uneven gaps if you are german) but in no way hard or risky, so no worrys.
Yep. I flexed tabs and such to eliminate the gaps. Looks great with some finesse.

Making any progress?

I've been using score attack mode for practice.

Trying to 1 life stage 2, but that mid level boss is so annoying.

Thanks @OlDirty for the vid.

Is everyone here running it on a vewlix? I'm wondering if there are pics of it running in 4:3.. I can't buy the game, but I'm curious how they changed the HUD to fit, or if they add wallpaper on the sides.

Glad to hear people enjoying it :D

I posted a photo of 9:16 in a 16:9 space in the other thread:

It is just art of four character profiles filling the space. The game doesn't use the space otherwise:



You have an option of 9:16 or 3:4 display modes, which changes the way gauges etc. are displayed.
Of course, there is no artwork if you are displaying 3:4 in 3:4 output mode.

As for gameplay elements, I didn't take a close photo but you can kind of see how things get shifted around in this wide shot of 3:4 in 16:9:
