* FlunkyBoss: Black Heart to an extent, but the final boss takes it to the extreme by using enemies, hostile player ships and finally [[VideoGame/RType Force units]] as projectiles, all firing shots of their own as well.

* FlunkyBoss: Black Heart to an extent, but the final boss (bearing a resemblance to The [[VideoGame/RadiantSilvergun Stone]]-[[VideoGame/{{Ikaruga}} Like]]) takes it to the extreme by using enemies, hostile player ships and finally [[VideoGame/RType Force units]] as projectiles, all firing shots of their own as well.


An indie game that combines elements from many different shooters, mainly Creator/{{Cave}} games, and with an impressive amount of playable ships from various games: [[VideoGame/DonPachi DON-8D A-Type, DON-8D B-Type, DON-8Z, DON-8Z Replica, Hibachi, ]-[|/34<#!]], [[VideoGame/CastleOfShikigami G&G ESP Stream]], [[VideoGame/{{Ketsui}} Tiger Schwert]], [[VideoGame/{{Guwange}} Rain]], [[VideoGame/BorderDown Red Wasp]], VideoGame/TwinCobra, [[VideoGame/{{Xevious}} Solvalou]], VideoGame/GeminiWing, VideoGameXIIStag, Spirit & Saber, [[VideoGame/{{Gradius}} Vic Viper]], VideoGame/{{Ikaruga}}, [[VideoGame/MutantNight Mu-Tron]], [[VideoGame/GigaWing Raijin]] and Blaster Mk-VI. The scoring system is lifted right out of [[VideoGame/DonPachi [=DoDonPachi Dai-Oh-Jou=]]], and a lot of other shmups are represented via enemies and bosses.

* AwesomeButImpractical: [[{{Xevious}} Solvalou]] has one of the most powerful shots in the game, and its ground attack will eliminate nearly any ground-based enemy in one hit. The catch is that the standard shot cannot hit enemies on the ground, and just as in the original game, the ground attack is only useable at a fixed absolute distance from the ship itself.

** Awesome for playing but impractical for scoring is [[DonPachi ]-[|/34<#!]], which plays like a very powerful version of the normal DDP ships, but has a hard time scoring well as building a lasting hit chain with it is very difficult. Hibachi is similar, as while it can spray continuous death all day long, it only has two speeds: Insanely fast and painfully slow, and to uncover bees with it you need to be right on top of them.

* NostalgiaLevel: Stage 1 is quite reminiscent of ''VideoGame/{{Ketsui}}'' stage 1, with the same midboss, and the boss is the stage 1 boss from [[DonPachi DoDonPachi Dai-Oh-Jou]]. The first half of stage 2 is also similar to ''VideoGame/{{Ketsui}}'' stage 2, and the boss is the boss from stage 3.
