Favourites

Hay guys, today I’m going back to my favorite bullet-hell shooters and looking at what made them fun. I’d like to hear what your favorite shooters are and why.

Here’s some of my personal highlights, which I hope to learn from:

Dodonpachi: Explosions and massive enemies everywhere. Extremely energetic art and music style.
Ikaruga: Amazing level design and scoring system that takes advantage of the game mechanics.
Touhou: Pretty bullet patterns from the bosses, and good range of difficulty levels.
Bangai-O HD: Rewards you for flying into very dangerous situations. Let’s YOU spam the bullets too.
Geometry Wars Evolved²: So colorful and chaotic that it takes skill just to see what’s going on.
Jamestown: Supports widescreen and 4 players, unlike most vertical shmups that are ported from the arcade.

In my opinion, Bullet Heaven 1′s best features were:
• Pretty, glowing bullet patterns.
• Quite casual and easy to get into for noobs to the genre.
• Cute art style that’s tied into the EBF games.

Am I right?
Because that’s probably what I’m going to concentrate on for the sequel.

I was wondering if you eventually would try to re-optimize ebf4, since my computer doesn't seem to like flash a lot. I think the animations cause the lag and not the code...

It would be too much work.

hey kupo i got an awesome idea!

maybe remix dodonpachi themes in BH2!
i really like the theme mercilessness and red bee!
those are good boss themes and music is 50% of a game!

Is there some sort of AI quirk that the final bosses of EBF 4 have that causes them to use an attack several times in a row? Because I've had the Creator use the bomb attack (The one that hits everyone individually) like 5 times in a row. By a strange coincidence, it was probably the one magic-based attack I wanted her not to use due to me not having bomb resistance...

lol, i just realized akron is the name of the dark lord from the emerald sword saga, i assume you like rhapsody of fire because in the ''one more final battle'' you used legendary tales as the ending music, wich is one of the cd's that tells the story of the emerald sword saga

:iconhayatohiroaki:
yay! i only knew rhapsody of fire because of you! i loved legendary tales then i searched for the band and loved all of their musics, thanks a lot!

Matt, do you know anything about the game freezes in Epic Battle Fantasy 4 on steam?
I am offline and graphic quality was the lowest so I do not know what to do to prevent them. They have occurred a few times at random points in the game which were not that bothersome.

However, this time  the game decided to freeze at the absolute worst moment in the monster marathon on epic. I was on wave 37 right after the feeling of hope when i slayed the only heads giving me trouble.

Anyway, I hope you know a way to solve this problem or are at least aware of it.

What are your computer specs?
Reply
:iconlazyboy13:

I use an Acer Aspire 5755G Series laptop

Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2430M CPU @ 2.40GHz

8.00 GB of RAM

NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M graphics card

305/680 GB disk space used
It uses Windows 7

I believe these are the specs, I have not had to look for them and type them out before, so I do not know if I am missing something.

Seems more than good enough to run the game, not sure why you're having problems. Hmm.
