What's it aboutInspired by classic Japanese shooting games, Danmaku Unlimited 3 is a lovingly crafted medley of the best aspects of Japanese bullet hell games, all in a polished, accessible package.

An old school shoot'em up? Why is it worth my time?Bullet hell style mechanics is having a kind of renaissance with its inclusion in many hit indie games. However if players want to explore more into the world of Bullet Hell a lot of traditional titles can be hard to understand in its mechanics or just plain too difficult to get into as a newcomer.

Danmaku Unlimited 3 is designed to be intuitive and accessible to players unfamiliar with the genre, all the while without losing any of the intensity and flashiness that makes the genre so exciting to play.

Okay, so how does the game do that?
CORE A staple feature in Bullet Hells, only the very center of the player's craft, the core, is vulnerable to enemy fire.

GRAZING Get the core close to bullets to just barely "graze" it will power up the player's craft. Once fully charged it can unleash a powerful rampage that makes you feel like a total boss.

SPIRIT/GRAZE SYSTEM Shooting down enemies turns their shots into harmless ghost bullets that the player can safely touch while also powering up the plane.

All of this allows the game to be at a level of challenge that is manageable for a wide range of players without reducing the game into a bullet free turkey shoot.I'm good at bullet hell shooters, won't I just breeze though the game then?
The game has two unique modes, GRAZE MODE features a differently tuned system (with conditions to trigger the ghost bullets) that offers a higher level of challenge comparable to the toughest traditional bullet hell titles.Is there a story?
It is about a guardian, entrusted with Earth, rebelling against her overseers. Shakespeare it isn't, but you are here for the bullets and explosions right?How is the music? A Shmup is nothing without good music!
Music is by BLANKFIELD from Japan, who does awesome remixes of Touhou and many other anime/game musics!Anything else?

Danmaku Unlimited 3 reviews and comments

First of all for those who have Xbox360 controller, it may not be detected, but the walkthrough to solve the problem is indicated in the hub. Regarding the game itself, it's fluid, beautiful (even if the décor question has the minimum), the sound atmosphere is good and well in the rhythm of the game. It must be said clearly, Danmaku unlimited 3 is a sick game, it happens from everywhere (especially the bosses), but you have to play and replay, to start enjoying the game, and do not hesitate to start again, because in this game, we lose quickly.

The kind of manic shooter that usually, may appear elitist, becomes accessible thanks to the developers of this Danmaku unlimited 3. 2 game modes are available including 1 to destinatiion of beginners. The advantage of this "spirit" mode is interesting: the bouboules of the defeated enemies are transformed into bonuses, which greatly facilitates the progression. Your special attack can either be aggressive or defensive, which will allow you to absorb a blow before losing a life, which is very useful. The music deglingue well, the game is very pretty, but it explodes a little too quickly eyes so the long sessions are to be avoided for the uninitiated. + It's smart it's fun it's pretty-it hurts the eyes

Product received for free to be honest I was a little scared by launching Danmaku unlimited 3. I loved the second episode (which I often advise when asked the vertical PC shmups to possess absolutely) and I wondered if sunny TAM would succeed in modifying the formula enough to actually make a title apart. The answer is a big Yes. Largely basing the gameplay on the Meatball grazing is a great idea, forcing the player to take a lot of risks to become overpowered. Even better, the pretty accessible spirit mode allows beginners to have fun but beware, closing the game in easy will require a little training. Beautiful, handy, with an excellent soundtrack, Danmaku unlimited 3 is a total success. I enjoyed discovering the different phases of the bosses and admiring the crazy work done on them. If you like vertical shmups, there is no hesitation, you need this game! Read the full test on game side story [www.gamesidestory.com] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=94isBTVM9YQ
