            clover is just so overtop, never played a shmup that was so focused on like having bomb spam up as often as possible and trying to thread the needle for a few seconds at a time

            bosses are fun too

                He is specifically talking about chaining. It's not exactly easy on its own but attempting to fully chain the entire level is madness. If you just want to survive the homing weapon targets everything around you and causes a ton of slowdown on the original Saturn version.

            Elemental Master is an easy Shoot em Up on the Genesis. It is a vertical scroller. You have a choice among four levels and you can get health upgrades in the levels. If you run out of HP then you have to use a credit. You frequently gain a new shot type after beating a boss and you can charge it up for a powerful attack. Thunder Force III is a little bit harder since you'll lose orbitals and your weapon upon death. On the other hand you continue from where you last died and continues start from where you left off.

          Ikagura is a pretty good recommendation for beginners however because they should run a pacifist run and try and color switch through the game to learn navigation and problem solving on the fly before getting into shooting mechanics.

          I think it would be a good tutorial mode.

      Cotton Reboot is pretty good but you need to learn the magic. With use of the game's magic system you can pretty regularly give yourself an invincible shield or do a screen clear. Grazecounter gives you tons of opportunity to screen clear and shield yourself as well. Soldier Blade is pretty reasonable if you want a barebones simple shmup.

    What's the difference between routing a shmup and memorizing rollslop invul frame windows, attack pattern variation, and parry windows on every variation of attack on every enemy in Souls garbage?

      Routing is tougher and more on the fly pattern memorization, some shots are random others are aimed some shots you can pass through others you have to dodge.

      Macro dodging and micro dodging, how and when collecting power ups and when to drop bombs.

      Its WAY MORE INVOLVED than Rollslop.

      Both make things easier, but routing in shmup is kind of the only way to beat the game. As for rollslop like Dark Souls, why would you do that? Just go get a weapon that deals tons of damage lmao. I remember getting an OP weapon in early game that could kill every bosses, including Gwyn, in only 5-8 hits

    Star of Providence(formerly Monolith) is pretty sick, but, man, you really do need to have a good run going if your skills aren't enough and even then you need manage your health good enough for F5 boss let alone entirety of F6. At least with the former you can get Second Wind and get a much needed full restore, but for the latter you need to not only hopefully get it, but also lose as little health(and bombs too) as you can to the boss just so you could survive the following floor and its boss, after all there's no shop(unless you get a special cartridge) and no upgrade terminal to save you. Thus far my best has been 3rd phase of F6 boss, which I managed to reach two times thus far. I know I'm getting ever so slightly better at the game too as I consistently get to F4 or F5 more often. I think if I go full bore on grinding the game I will be able to beat F6 boss at long last, I just need to keep on going.

        Get your head out of the gutter. I've been waiting for a modern Raptor spiritual successor and this is the closest thing I'm getting. Unless you have a good rec?

        holy shit I completely forgot about cygni. It is the closest thing to AA shmups could get. I doubt it would be successful though especially since the minimum requirement is a GTX 2070.

        >I doubt it would be successful though especially since the minimum requirement is a GTX 2070.
        You don't need 2070. The CPU is more important also DON"T play on the max setting, the devs have stated that the max preset is literally a meme that will kill your FPS for very little gains.

            I liked it. What I liked the most was the expanded player agency between air/ground units. There are SOME nuances in managing Power/Shield but not deep enough until we get access to upgrades, and the overall presentation is good. Took me some time to get accommodated to the controls, but in the end it was fine.
            No sure what you don't like about it.

      true but lets be real, routing chains is much much more difficult than just maxing everything out over time and murdering everything with 100 earned lives. it'll give you a good idea of what to expect and how to survival which is a key skill in arcade. idk if I'll ever do it but I want to try

        >routing chains is much much more difficult than just maxing everything out over time and murdering everything with 100 earned lives.
        Chains are far more beneficial in Arcade Mode, Story Mode nerfs you weapon gains to shit and basically and requires you to grind over multiple runs. Getting an honest 1CC is far, FAR easier to do in Arcade Mode than in Story Mode. Grinding weapons in Story Mode and racking up hours is nothing more than a noob trap which wastes your time. It won't improve your knowledge of the game, but gitting gud at Arcade Mode means you automatically git gud at Story Mode, too.
        >it'll give you a good idea of what to expect
        It won't. If you want to "see" the whole game then just play Arcade Mode and credit feed. Again Story Mode is just a massive noob trap and you should get off it as soon as possible.

        One reason is that they don't care about Steam. Discounts have to be configured in the backend and most Jap devs set it once and never check Steam again. Of course you don't sign up your newly released game for 90% discounts.

      The ranking and weapon system makes it so enemies are constantly changing throughout the stage according to your subweapons and rank, but spawn points and bosses are still the same so there's still memorization to some degree, just not as much as the average shmup.

              Are you using adam v2 or v1? Assuming you are using Adam v2 since it's the default for the steam version.
              The game does have weird mechanic such as when you use normal shot, it resets the input buffer, putting it back to neutral. So, you might accidentally end up using the bomb or worse not using method at all instead of what you intended. And bomb is quite meh in this game for survival since you can't recharge your method gauge during the bomb iframe

          actually, we would be freed from earthly desires in heaven so there won't be any need for sex there

    surprisingly good conversation and attitude in this thread with the exception of that one guy who has a massive grudge against shmups and the few elitists who I suspect aren't as good as they claim to be.
