good game, lots of fun. its a shooter/shmup but you do actually have a health meter/shield so you don't just die in one hit, which puts it a cut above the rest of the bullet-hell shooters where you get three lives and die instantly. making this game a bit more accessible to the average gamer.
it has an overhead view, kind of like the overhead levels of Super C or Contra III, however, I would say that this game is more fun than that.
the levels are a bit samey after a while, but the bosses are all very different and challenging.
the level layout adds some replayability as well since you can choose different paths and i want to see what other bosses lurk in thus-far-unplayed levels.
