Are there any game devs that are even in the same league as Treasure?

I've been going through their catalogue lately and I really think they might be the best game devs of all time.

            No that's actually my point. Lasorda baseball wasn't good but it was more fun than gunstar heroes. I just happened to blindly play the game decades before youtube existed. Picrel is something actually great

        Gunstar Heroes is balanced like absolute shit, the random weapon drops suck dog ass and the game falls apart at higher difficulties. It's Treasure's most overrated game by far. The rushed-out GBA sequel that people like to talk shit about is actually not even that much worse than the original.

        The game is basically hard carried by its presentation, animation quality and a couple great bosses such as Seven Force and Golden Silver. The lightsaber weapon is the game's only interesting mechanic.

              why are you so defensive about being filtered by gunstar heroes? you were presumably a child the last time you played it. you were filtered but it's okay. you're not around any sharp objects or anything right now are you? I worry about you anon...

    Their golden years (1994 - 2000) are unbeatable. They never really adapted to 3D unfortunately. They understood boss fights better than any other game developer in their prime.

    Treasure might be one of the most consistently creative dev teams but they're rarely the best at anything since they hated directly iterating, one of the few times they did make a direct sequel they made the best game in the genre.

      I downloaded this but I'm not sure what control scheme to use for it. not entirely sure how it's meant to be played with a controller

        It's not.
        I use a mouse in one hand and a controller in the other. Sounds moronic but it works great. Only thing you need to do is (in the ingame options) map melee to a dedicated button.

          I thought the mouse input with dolphin was really laggy so I switched to controller, I'll figure something out. Loved sin and punishment 1

      they did an absolute shitton of iterating
      not having sequels didn't stop them from revisting the same genres, or reusing the same engines and mechanics from previous games
      in fact most treasure games are in some way a spiritual sequel or mashup of their previous works

        arcade mode is kicking my ass in this game. I'll have to study up on how to effectively chain essentially the whole game.

          Some parts give you WAY more points than others. I could get a bit over 7M (around A lvl.30, B lvl.25 and C lvl.15) and some parts give 1M on their own. I don't remember the moronic level naming scheme but the first 3 levels in the game give you over 2M. If you go the Level 2 route then you need to hit the secret chain during the GOLETS boss fight. If you go the Level 4 route then you need to speedkill all reds on the very first level and farm the red boxes at the end. Both of these give you 1M each.

            I'm pretty new to shmups but I managed to beat silvergun on normal with like 75 lives lmao so it's gonna be a long time before I can effectively chain enough in arcade to progress but I'm trying a little bit every day.

      It's okay. there's not much to it beyond your typical mascot platforming game still for Treasure's very first game, it could have been been way worse

      I enjoyed it, it's type of game treasure never really made before but I think for a first effort they did pretty well, very puzzle heavy but usually not on the bullshit side of things, near the end of the game you have the usual treasure wacky side of things for something that was mostly straight laced

      It's great and very different from their usual output. It shows they had range and could make more than just arcade style games. Some really good puzzles and the smoothest isometric platforming controls around.

      It's alright. I liked the atmosphere and the weird soundtrack. The overall story and puzzle focus reminded the of Arx Fatalis at times. There are tons of block pushing puzzles, which makes backtracking a pain, as you need to redo them every single time you pass a screen. That said, the game is fairly short and packed with fun content. One specific boss fight near the end is so fricking ridiculous that it makes the whole experience worth it in my opinion.
