A fun experience through and through. This was my first shmup, so difficulty was a concern I had in mind before playing, but it never really felt unfairly challenging, I think the progression is extremely good and allowed me to grow more and more, and it went even farther than just learning enemies' movesets.

The only bit that frustrated me a bit was the finale, but that was most definitely the intention and I think it did it well enough that I was still motivated to fight my way until the true end. Achieving it left me quite satisfied.

I have never had a shmup surprise me this much. Play this game.
Great aesthetics and very good OST.
You don't have bombs but you can get a huge amount of extends from scoring (and lose them very quickly if you're not careful). The ship upgrades that you get at the end of a stage all feel great to use and having the stage centered around the one you just acquired makes for very fun gameplay.
I'm not going to say too much to not spoil but the TLB has very interesting choices.

I have no fucking clue what the hell is happening in this game but all I know is that it has some of the most transcendent and adrenaline filled moments I've ever had the pleasure experiencing in a game.
