Keywords the reviewer selected :

A port of an old Sharp X68000 shmup released by Sprite, B-System is a 'boss-rush-only' game where you face off against 12 giant mechanized sea life(9 pictured above). As with Darius, the bosses have one mean weak point but also have a few destructible bits which give you power-up icons when destroyed. However, unlike Darius, these icons are used to select a power-up from a Gradius-like bar using the X key/button 2: speed-up, downward-firing missiled, a Gradius-like straight laser, a Darius-like wave shot, options and a 'force'. Weapons can be upgraded multiple times and up to four options can be carried at a time.

However, the game is very difficult at the beginning as you start out completely unpowered. If you've played any Darius game and have had to face a boss without any powerups, you know what to expect. Besides shooting lasers, bullets or destructible missiles at you, bosses will try to crush you against a corner of the screen. The game is kind enough to let you retain your weapons after you lose a life on Easy difficulty, or give you some power-up orbs if you lose a life on Medium (there is no Hard mode; not that the game needs it).

The graphics look good for the game's vintage, with the boss designs being a mix of original and borrowed from the Darius games. While difficult, the game looks and plays well for what it is and will be enjoyed by gamers who grew up on these types of games, gamers who are familiar with the shmups and their history, or gamers who just like the look of Darius-style bosses.

This release of the game runs fine on Windows XP, 7 and 10. On starting up the game you are thrown directly into the action and should press ESC to access the title screen and options menu. Somewhat confusingly, some options are available only in the menu and some only on the menu bar on top.

This pack contains ten male sprites and ten female sprites. The sprites are rendered out in 9 different sizes. The psd files are also included, but if you don't have Photoshop, you may need to do extra editing.

The sprites are good quality. There is one male sprite where the perspective on the left shoulder looks off to me, but you can preview the images before purchase because the png files delivered appear the same as in the sample images.

This time we've got ourselves a... pettanko presentation so to say. It's pretty much the same as the other 'Ear Cleaning Priestess' parts: mostly talking, little sound effects, mostly ambient. If you're into that, or if you enjoyed any of the previous installements this is for you. With the difference being that this time as the cover shows you're not gonna get smothered with boobs. Damoko is great though, always enjoy her works.

It's Renge Toudou doing barbershop sounds. Why haven't you bought this already?

On a more serious note, it's good. There's two 'tracks' so to say, with one more focused on the sound effects and one on talking. Both are great in opinion. Renge Toudou has been one of my favourite CVs for a long time and nothing less but a very enjoyable performance from her here again.

The sound effects are a bit too subtle for my tastes but it's still a very enjoyable package.

In my opinion the best release from Tomimi Retreat. There's just so many good things to say about this.

Our CV, Shishamo is just fantastic for this kind of work. She just nails it here.

Soundwise it's again, fantastic. You've got hair sounds, shampoo sounds, massage sounds... And it's not for a couple of minutes. This damn thing 120+ minutes.

And look at that price. There's no excuse not to get this gem if you're looking for a relaxing audio experience.

Ear cleaning, sleeping soun-- Hey, where are you touching?! Yup, it has it all.

Starts out too cute to explain. That 'dayo' after mimikaki just melts my heart every single time. It's a bit short tough. After that it's all good, ear cleaning sounds and at the end going to bed as you'd expect. Nothing dirty, just good old vanilla breathing sounds... And beware, you're getting a Kanon Punch if you try anything!

What can I say? There are a total of eleven sisters to give you attention, and it shows. You start off with good old ear cleaning but then the rest of your imoutos get kinda jealous for attention... Well, my favourite part is absolutely the massage by the two little sisters, though I have give special mention to Koiki since I've become a big fan of hers. In the end, sleeping sounds as you'd expect. A nicely varied pack.

A surprising entry from Tomimi Retreat. I'm a fan of their 'The Rest House' series which doesn't really focus on sounds, so this one was a pleasant surprise. My personal favourite is the scizzor sounds. But there's a lot more than just that. I do have to admit that I HATED the coffee-cup sounds, the screeching sound they make... Ugh. Beyond that, a very enjoyable ASMR soundtrack. At this price, a no-brainer.

Cambria Sword

I stumbled upon this game while browsing recent Comiket releases. In amongst the countless familiar Touhou clones stood something strange. A shmup marching to the beat of its own drum.

Cambria Sword is a bizarre fusion of Bio Hazard Battle and Radiant Silvergun, with a few other nods to classic Genesis/Megadrive-era sidescrollers. It (silently) tells the story of space-war in ancient prehistory, with the strange creatures of Cambrian-era earth dragged into a conflict between rival alien intelligences. It's trippy, but a hell of a hook.

Gameplay-wise, this is slower and chunkier than most modern shmups. While you do have a relatively small hitbox, enemy attacks are relatively sparse and manageable, but you'll be losing lives regularly anyway, as this is a true marathon game.

While most shmups clock in at 20-40 minutes, a complete playthrough of Cambria Sword is a 3-4 hour endeavour. There's a handy level select and you can pick a shortened campaign along the way to make things a little less gruelling, but your six continues will be stretched to the limit on this one.

You'd think that the long playtime would make this feel stretched out, but each stage is full of creative ideas and imaginative bosses. The second stage is stand-out brilliant, with your ascent from the ocean to the stars being blocked by waves of mobilizing enemy troops in the foreground and back.

In fact, you can play that right now - there's a generous demo right on this page. Download it and play it. Experiment with the complex weapons system, then come back to get the full game.

The full version comes with the (excellent, live) prog-metal soundtrack, and the strategy guide from the Extra Disc, which is surprisingly legible even when machine-translated.

$14 for one of the biggest and most creative shmups I've seen is good value, by the way. Get it.

This release has become one of my favourite ones. You get a total of seven audio tracks which are really enjoyable, starting out with ear cleaning and finishing up with some soft sleep sounds. Also included are of course aftertalk and outtakes, but also animated 'shorts' of some of the audio. Haru Koyama, our voice for this piece does a great job for Aaron and Ena. I can't really stress how cute this is enough. Looking forward for more releases from AaronPoint!
