Prepare yourself for an insatiable rain of bullets, bombs, and beams in Crimzon Clover. From Japanese indie developer YOTSUBANE, AdventurePlanningService, this unique top-down shooter is a wild ride you won't want to miss out on.
Your first step in Crimzon Clover: World Ignition is as simple as choosing how you want to play, and which powerful ship will be yours to command. Choose your difficulty from ARCADE (true to the original arcade game) or NOVICE (better if these are your first step in the world of hardcode SHMUP) then choose your mode from Boost, Original, Unlimited, and Time Attack.
Original is THE main mode, where you blast your way through stage in search of the last boss. Boost Mode will adjust the difficulty based on how proficient you are at devastating your enemies. Unlimited turns each stage into an intense battlefield of bullets that only the most hardcore players will be able to survive. Time Attack pits you against the clock as you race to make the best score possible in about 3 minutes.
Take the role of a skilled pilot in the fight to destroy massive waves of enemies while dodging their unending rain of bullets. Each of the three ships has their own style of standard firing and a unique appearance. The firing style is translated beautifully as you amp your way into Break Mode and Double Break Mode! As you blast through your foes in each stage you can collect stars that will raise your score. Each enemy destroyed helps fill your Break Meter, which allows you to wipe the screen with powerful bombs or, if you have the patience, blast off into Break Mode to add a huge boost to your firepower and let you rip through enemies with ease. That's not the extent of your strength though, as having a full Break Meter while in Break Mode will allow you to enter the ultimately destructive Double Break Mode. Watch your enemies crumble in fear as you turn the tide and fill the screen with your own hellacious rain of firepower!
Having a tough time to clear the game using no continue? No worries. Hit up the Training screen to set up your own scenario using your choice of mode, ship, stage, and freely customize other variables to practice the fight for survival. Training doesn't seem like a bad idea after you see what the enemies are capable of. Can you pilot your craft through the bullet massacre the enemies have prepared for you? Find out as you play Crimzon Clover: World Ignition!

Prepare to spend thousands of credits to continue in this game. One of those bullet hell experiences where you won't survive more than a few seconds when you start playing it, but, thank god, the learning curve is so good you'll end up being the ultimate bullet avoider. If you wanted to try Mushihimesama but that's just too much for you Crimzon Clover is a perfect alternative. Because it is not that hard. I mean, t is incredibly difficult as the genre demands, but the fact is this is not as hard as you may think during your first gameplay. If you keep playing it for a bit you'll notice how good you get at it, and that's exactly the point where you start loving it and getting rid of that annoying feeling of "this game just wants me dead". Well, the game really needs a better menu interface and graphics are not as beautiful as other games, but gameplay is awesome. Notice how clearly you see your ship in the middle of this bullet hell, 90 % of your deaths will be because you actually missed while avoiding bullets and not because you just lost track of your ship. That's a very important fact considering the genre we are talking about. Just don't hate it if you die 1000000000 times the first time.
This game is pretty much everything you can ask for in a bullet hell shmup. Tons of bullets on-screen, which makes it challenging, but there is at least some strategy to be deployed. If you aren't familiar with the genre, this might not be the best game to start out with.
One of the best shoot'em ups I've played in a long time, this game has it all: stunning graphics, colorful effects, nice sound and music, non-stop epic action, great gameplay and a great control (I'm playing it with an Xbox 360 controller). This is not another doujin "bullet hell" game, a great amount of care and love this game has received making it one of the best in years to come. It's really fun to play with its different challenging modes and options. With constant 60 FPS and kind-of-retro designs, it's like playing Raiden III or Raiden IV on steroids. Although some designs are a little pixelated, it doesn't matter too much. As for the technical specs, the game offers a maximum "game" resolution of 1280x768, which you can set as windowed or fullscreen. If you select a "display" resolution with the same value, it will cover the screen completely in fullscreen, but if you select a higher value, the difference will be just black borders around the "game" resolution. The best sampling option is bilinear scaling. You can also change vertical or horizontal stretch ratio manually and the rotation from normal (horizontal) to vertical. There's no anti-aliasing in-game. As for the gameplay, it's incredible fun. The game has different modes for novice and hardcore players. The attacks from enemies and especially from you are very powerful and colorful. The enemy bullets move fast in different patterns, and depending of your preferences you have different ships to select that go from faster but with weaker attacks, to slower but with more powerful attacks. You also have the classic shots and bombs to nuke everything on screen, and a third attack that target enemies while you keep pressing the proper button until you release it to unleash the missiles. If you're fan of these types of games, this is a serious candidate to keep very high in your wishlist. But don't wait too long, because it's worth it.
