Future of Gradius style games?
This review is copied from the Japanese version review I wrote. I actually noticed no difference between the games other than the menus being changed to their corresponding region language game.

This game was actually really fun and plays a lot like Gradius which by itself was one of the better side scrolling flying shooting games.
The graphics are very vibrant and colorful, sometimes making it a challenge to distinguish background and foreground, but overall appealing to look at.
This game is actually pretty difficult, I think mostly because of the excessive color whereas in Touhou, that was not an issue. Since I have only 1 controller for XBox, I couldn't do the 2-player mode. I suppose instead of comparing this game to Gradius, maybe comparing it to Lifeforce for NES is a better comparison due to the 2-player simultaneous gameplay.

Muy buena edición
Muy atractiva para los fans de life force, gradius y parodius, con un buen reto para jugarlo varias veces, todo el contenido de la caja vale la pena.
