5.0 out of 5 stars Another great from CAVE, 15 May 2012

This review is from: Akai Katana (Video Game)
Fantastic bullet hell game.
I love Dodonpachi, Deathsmiles, Mushihime-sama Futari and now Akai Katana is another awesome title.

The 3 ships have some nice variation in speed and shot patterns.
For example ship A is the fastest and good for those who want to move around a lot.
Ship C moved a lot slower but from what I can tell has stronger firepower.

You can use the RT button for when you need to spray some shots whilst moving quickly around the screen.
If you press A you'll have a more concentrated firepower but will move slower.

You can use bombs as you would with many other bullet hell games but this game has a feature that was a real pleasant surprise... Summoning the PHANTOM, now this adds a really nice twist to the game in regards to how you deal
with the onslaught of bullets.

Whilst in phantom form your shot techniques change from a more defensive type or more aggressive type.
When pressing the button which promotes defense you can gather enemy bullets around the screen and attempt to manipulate them so that you have less chance of being hit.
Handy for when you feel that you really have no chance of avoiding damage.
Then there's a more aggressive type of attack you can do with the phantom which I believe may absorb enemy laser beams but correct me if I'm wrong.

Another nice feature is the three game modes. Each one has slight different variations to each level in regards to bullet patterns and difficulty.
There is also a novice option, plenty of options for screen adjustment and backgrounds.

There is however no online play from what I've seen so far which is a shame but at the same time I'm not really that fussed since I usually play bullet hell games single player anyway.
The option to play online would of been good though for those who have bullet hell buddies who live too far for local co-op.

The game doesn't generally have as many options in comparison to other bullet hell games that I've mentioned at the beginning of the review but again I'm not too worried about this since the game is so fun.
The main thing that keeps bring me back to this game is that I'm spoilt for options on how I can approach each barrage of bullets which is great... I like a nice bit of variation.

Great game, I well and truely recommend to all bullet hell fans!
