* SmartBomb: You can fire a bomb of varying strength that's based on your Charge level. A Level 1 bomb simply clears bullets around you, while higher level bombs are large projectiles that go through bullets and enemies, though it's important to note that unlike in most other shmups, bombs ''don't remove all bullets from the screen''. An optional toggle lets you fire a Level 1 bomb automatically if you get hit with at least a Charge level of 1 or more, though it will use your entire Charge gauge. Additionally, the angle of Blue's bomb can be adjusted within a cone in front of her.

* NintendoHard: As an arcade-caliber scrolling shooter, it pulls no punches in its attacks. While the smartphone version does give you the option of enabling automatic bombing, and bombs can be rapidly re-obtained if you play your cards right, it's still easy to get overwhelmed by the bullet curtains especially on a relatively small smartphone screen. ''Type-R'' is even more difficult; whereas your lives replenish back to 3 at the start of each stage, this version does not, as is standard of arcade shmups.

The game is a top-down BulletHell shooter that borrows heavily in terms of gameplay style from Creator/{{CAVE}}'s games. Unique to this game is its take on the SmartBomb: Firing at enemies and destructible bullets and cancelling bullets with your bomb raises a [[ChargedAttack Charge]] gauge, which can be expended to fire a bomb, the strength of which is dependent on your Charge level when you fire it. Firing a bomb clears out bullets in its path, and also generates star items as it plows through enemies, alongside the stars that are normally dropped when destroying enemies.

!! ''Aka to Blue'' contains examples of:
* BulletHell: Like almost any modern shoot-em-up, the game will fill with bullets very quickly.
* ChargedAttack: Collect type. Shooting enemies and cancelling bullets will raise your Charge level, which determines how powerful your SmartBomb will be when you deploy it.
* ColourfulThemeNaming: All of the named characters are named after colors: Aka (Japanese for "red"), Blue, Murasaki ("purple"), Kuro ("black"), Ao ("blue"), and Dr. Brown.
* GameBreakingBug: The location test builds of ''Type-R'' seem to have trouble with not crashing when playing as Blue. This has led to the developers having to disable use of her at times as a result.
* MenAreStrongWomenArePretty: Aka is the male half of the protagonist pair and is a muscly BoisterousBruiser, while Blue is the female half and is comparatively soft-spoken and sports a fairly average body type.
* NintendoHard: As an arcade-caliber scrolling shooter, it pulls no punches in its attacks. While the smartphone version does give you the option of enabling automatic bombing, it's still easy to get overwhelmed by the bullet curtains especially on a relatively small smartphone screen. ''Type-R'' is even more difficult; whereas your lives replenish back to 3 at the start of each stage, this version does not, as is standard of arcade shmups.
* ProtagonistTitle: Aka and Blue are the two {{Player Character}}s.

A Level 1 bomb simply clears bullets around you, while higher level bombs are large projectiles that go through bullets and enemies, though it's important to note that unlike in most other shmups, bombs ''don't remove all bullets from the screen''.
