Doujin Shmups AKA OMGWTFBBQ!?!


Doujin Shmup, care to take a guess as to what that is? It stands for Indie Shoot’em Ups. People in Japan prefer games that give you a prolapsed rectum because that is how hard these shooters are going to rape you. They fall under another term called “Bullet Hell” or “Curtain Fire” since the screen can become a solid wall of colored bullets. Your character’s hit zone is usually defined as a small pixel block which is what allows for you to live albeit a very short time.

The king of the shmup in my eyes is Shanghai Alice who makes the Touhou series of games. Super fast, incredibly hard with great soundtracks. They are almost anime turned into shooters. One that I tried off the list that I like a lot is Ether Vapor Even though just in demo form, it shows a lot of promise and is better than most big publisher games.

Get dodging bullets and learn about Doujin Shmups.
