Fridge / Smart Bomb

Fridge Brilliance
  • I used to hate the auto-bomb mechanic found in some shmups, believing that they were artificial extra lives. However, I've recently taken up training myself not to rely on bombspamming, and this is where Fridge Brilliance kicks in: since auto-bomb automatically fires a bomb if I get hit (rather than losing a life), it takes my mind off of panic-bombing, allowing me to focus on a very important aspect of shooters, especially of the Bullet Hell variety: dodging bullets. It's a skill that tends to be stunted if you compulsively manual-bomb when there is a chance of dying idiotically.
