I am becoming quite the expert at shmuos it must be said, I’ve seen a lot and played even more. In Hell Pages it goes for a one run style game where you collect coins from enemies and spend these on continues and save points. It’s all very safe, the actual shooting never really mixes it up as I pick up one power up and get the good wide spread gun and then despite collecting more power ups, nothing changes. You can change the direction of the guns but it’s just forward and/or backwards. Magic attacks are limited and these are just like a screen killing smart bomb type deal. A health bar on your character means you can take damage and regain health rather than the traditional one hit death you see so often. Add in boss battles and you have all Hell Pages has to offer. I didn’t hate playing it but I didn’t love it either, the colour of enemy bullets got lost in The scenery, the levels all played the same and the control layout is weird and you cannot rebind them. Maybe give Hell Pages a go if you want a more simplified Shmup experience as this seems more geared towards new players rather than veterans of the series.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
