The best in the series by a mile, and the only version of the game where you can turn off the slowdown bullshit.

What are some other great retro shmups? Also been playing Battle Garegga and Strikers 1945 II

  1. Oh hey man. That’s also my favorite version of DoDonPachi. Like another anon said, Rsiden Fighters is awesome. I’m a huge fan of the Parodius series too. Sexy Parodius and Jikkyou Oshaberi Paroduus are my two favorites

  2. >game allows you slow the gameplay at will at like 50% of normal speed and don’t punish you for it
    >the game is literally MORE DIFFICULT

      Note that it says "IF YOU AREN’T USING SLOWDOWN." The PSX version actually gives you the option and freedom instead of just jerking the game to a halt on its whim to emulate the feeling of dogshit hardware that can’t keep up with a game, because we all just LOVE a chugging framerate and game that runs like shit, right? We definitely want to emulate that feeling!

      The game on PSX runs faster (faster bullets, faster enemies, entire game sped up), and as a result, the (manual) slowdown slows less than the (automatic) slowdown of the arcade. So yes, it’s much harder with no slowdown, a little bit harder with automatic slowdown enabled (because it’s a bit less than arcade and also the game still runs faster), and easier with custom slowdown assuming you spam it, although I would still love to see you get a 2-ALL with custom slowdown allowed. I think you might be there for a few hundred hours buddy XD

        Except you typed also typed this.
        >that’s how it should be though. you can choose when you want the slowdown instead of it just happening and being really jarring.

      that’s how it should be though. you can choose when you want the slowdown instead of it just happening and being really jarring. the forced slowdown bullshit makes the later games unplayable imo. I really don’t know why morons actually consider slowdown from a machine literally not being able to run the game properly to be a good thing, and that it is now implemented as a """feature""" that can’t be disabled.

      shit port of an awesome game. uncovering bees is meant to give chain meter but in this version it doesn’t. use mame or burst.

      aside from that, it’s basically arcade perfect except with more features like disabling the slowdown and custom slowdown. And Beetle PSX is a better emulator in general. You can still chain, it’s just much harder.

      • The arcade version slowdowns are nowhere nearcas bad as what the button allows. If you use that you are a plain cheater. Are you one? You decide.

      • Pretty much every chains are rendered impossible, not just "much harder" because of that. Bees are a very important part of the level design/chain design. Yet you claim it’s arcade perfect. Way to out ourself as a nonplayer who never learned any chaining.

        • "because the PS1 and Saturn versions are running too fast, the chain meter itself is running too fast. So there’s certain times where certain links that are just kinda average in difficulty are extremely difficult, and I’m not 100% confident to say that some chains are impossible, but they are definitely extremely challenging to the point where you may have to like relearn your entire approach to the chain to try to get it to connect where before you could easily put it together"

          get good son, you’re playing the babby version.
