A side-scrolling shooter with psuedo 3D graphics and an interesting second weapon.
In this side-scrolling Japanese shooter, you play as a little girl with a big weapon. Yes, I know, "Surprise, Surprise." But this one contains semi-3D backgrounds and walls and also an interesting second fire option.
Your main friend will be the [Z] key as you move - rather sluggishly - around trying to shoot things. However when the enemies bullets become too much for you, hit and hold the [X] key tor a respite. Any of the enemies bullets caught in your immediate vicinity will be frozen and not cause you any harm. This is especially handy when certain enemies fill the screen from top to bottom with bullets destined to kill you.
Apart from that little feature, and as nifty as it is, the game really has nothing else going for it. I found the sprites take up too much of the screen - as do the obstacles - which leaves the player feeling either lost or just with no idea how to maneuver with any grace or style, not to mention ease.
If you're interested in the mechanics of certain games, you could take a few notes from this, but for the casual player, this doesn't offer anything you can't find better somewhere else.
