YMMV / Crimzon Clover

  • Adaptation Displacement: Very few people play the original doujin release anymore, partly because World Ignition is seen as a superior product, and partly because the doujin version is only available in physical format, making it particularly difficult for overseas players to legally acquire while World Ignition is easily available on Steam at a reasonable cost.
  • Awesome Music:
    • The stage 4 boss theme is probably the most notable one.
    • Transparent Stream, the stage 3 theme, is a relaxing tune for going through a cave full of killer flowers and ants.
      • On Unlimited, it's replaced by Evil Miasma, a sinister track fitting of the mode's difficulty. It gets an extended version in the arcade version and World Ignition.
  • Base Breaker: Type-Z. Either it's a fun improvement on Type-I, or it's a Game-Breaker that unbalances the game completely once unlocked, with the unlock only requiring a few hours of persistent play. Of course this is something of a moot point considering there's no competition between ships: each ship has a separate leaderboard,
  • Broken Base:
    • Crimzon Clover: World Ignition has two popularly-held opinions: One is that it's awesome that the arcade version is being ported back to PC, with new content to boot. The other is that the game being a digital release on Steam with no accompanying physical release is a travesty and a way to hurt Japanese fans, who are generally not fond of Steam.
    • Fans are split on whether the original soundtrack by potechi or the alternate soundtrack by Gryzor87 is better.
  • Game-Breaker: When DOUBLE BREAK was introduced to the 0.30 trial (the one released at Comiket 78 rather than the earlier 0.20 trial), the developer did not adjust the extend points, resulting in hilarious amounts of extra lives. The final version adjusts extends so that you no longer have as many as 10 lives by the end of stage 1.
    • Also, the Type-Z ship. This ship gets the most powerful regular shot of all 3 ships, the widest attack range, and the Break bar fills ridiculously fast the moment you reach 50%. There are only two problems: first, you have to have reached the staff roll, and its price in the limitter shop is not very cheap. But oncey ou do unlock it, you'll never want to use Type-I ever again.
      • To put that 3 million point price tag thing in perspective, Unlimited Mode is 300,000. If you were to finish the game 3 times (Beating Gorgoneion on your first credit), once on each difficulty, you'd still be short.
  • Good Bad Bugs/Game Breaking Bugs:
  • Internet Backdraft: When World Ignition was announced for a digital-exclusive release, a number of doujin shmup fans were nonplussed at the lack of a physical release, feeling that the lack of a physical release gives the game less value and that releasing it on Steam, a delivery platform that has been historically niche in Japan, is a disservice to Japanese players. Never mind that the point of World Ignition is to bring out an otherwise Japan-only arcade game to the international market, and that the market for physical copies for games has largely dwindled in the West thanks to the rise of digital distribution. For the most part, the anger over this has largely quieted down.
  • Memetic Mutation: Shooting game never die.Explanation 
  • Most Wonderful Sound: The sound of BREAK MODE and DOUBLE BREAK MODE activating.
  • Narm Charm:
  • Nightmare Fuel: Stage 3. In addition to the usual mechanized threads, you also have literal Demonic Spiders and ants assaulting you, and killer plants. All to eerie-sounding drum-and-bass music. Unlimited Mode makes it worse with the increased bullet count and the more oppressive music. It's even harder in World Ignition with it being a common ending point to many 1cc attempts due to being one of the most changed levels from the original game.
  • Spiritual Licensee: It's Ketsui with RayStorm lasers operating with the radial lock-on radar from Soukyugurentai.
  • Tier-Induced Scrappy: Once Type-Z is unlocked, either Type-I is a low-tier example for being a weaker version of Type-Z, or Type-Z is a high-tier example for making Type-I obsolete.
