Kimigamita Hikari 2

Ok, let's talk about the elephant in the room for a second - you know it and I know it, and it's time to acknowledge openly that there's been a lot of crap released in the doujin scene lately. Some of this crap has even made its way on to this site. There really haven't been too many games released since Crimzon Clover that I've been able to get behind and proclaim my love for. Sure, Valhellio is good, Satazius touches me in all the right places, and the Ether Vapor remake is a solid title as well - but I haven't really been enthusiastic about a title until this one. While it does feature some loli characters (eyes roll), this is a 100% Cave inspired, chaining slow pink bullet hell shmup that fills the screen with gems, explosions, and quadruple-digit numbers. I love it. Released by doujin group "Usimity Banana" (seriously, where do they get these names?) this title has been impressing STG fans since its initial release in December 2011. Yeah - I know - I'm a bit late to the game, but there've been a lot of terrible titles to sift through (Space Trans Porter, right? haha!). I recommend you check out the demo here and watch the video as well. there have also been a few update patches released on the official web page, so be sure to grab those. I love this game, highly recommend it, and I hope you'll learn to appreciate it as well.
