I can't record sounds from my computer, so the SFX are missing from the video.

Downloading now. You may want to change that file size from KB to 22.26 MB.

 

Smooth scrolling, nice game play, and addictive. File size is very large for what it is though.

 

I'm sure it'll become more detailed as time goes on, you may want to add some more to the back-drop besides the grass.

 

Good luck.

 

BTW: You can change the Vista compatible to Yes, as it does work on Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8.

Ran into a fatal error on about the 3rd run.

It was working great up until then. Not sure what I did differently (it was right after the sub-boss).

Huh? I'm not sure what happened there.

It was perfectly fine during playtesting too.

it was probably just your computer or something...

Minor update, I added the first sub-stage to the game, complete with it's own boss: Chen.

To unlock the sub-stage, simply defeat the sub-boss (Daiyousei) before she escapes. After that just fly into the Gap (purple portal with eyeballs) that appears later in the level.

 

Also, if anyone manages to beat Chen's final spellcard on Lunatic Difficulty, congratulations.

Is that a nice way of saying "Oh, I forgot to add a WIN screen"? :P

 

 

 

Some feedback:

 

The current game seems quite repetitive, both in enemy bullet patterns (and bullet sprites) and with the background being a mere 16x16 grass tile. The first boss' attacks both seems like they're nearly impossible to get hit by, making the difficulty Lunatic seems more like what I'd call Normal.

 

It would be nice with a life bar for the sub-boss, too.

No, it's a way of saying I have not managed to beat that particular spellcard (Crusading Cherub's Rampage) myself on lunatic. (I'm usually not good at dodging bullets, the video in post one was just me getting lucky)
 
Also, in case you haven't killed the subboss before it escaped (and thus unlocked the hidden sub-stage and Chen) it takes around 15 bullets to kill (it's easier to kill it on easier difficulties because there is less bullets flying at you).
