Changes from the original PS:

-Rank meter visible on screen, starting at 350.000 and maxing out at 999.999.
-Zan counter visible on screen and lowered to 1200 (original PS was 2500).
-You can collect up to three rose hips. Third one appears in the middle right below your ship.
-Abundant changes in the background graphics.
-The flashy blue bullets that e.g. the first Scrambled Egg shoots after its defeat are now red and much easier to see.
-Stage 5 is now named "Crevasse" and looks nothing like a desert anymore.
-Generally more bullets, faster increasing rank and higher difficulty.
-Some enemies have a higher resilience (e.g. the midsized round enemies at the beginning of stage 4).
-Snake sections seem more fair (?).
-Stage 5 boss laser attack is now much easier and not a problem anymore.
-No infinite lives. Maximum lives in stock is 5.
...


Image

It is now a three-button game with quite a complex control mechanism. Pay particular attention to the fact that you can now cancel your rose cracker without changing speed!


Stay tuned as I will investigate further. More to come!

OMG want. Who made this?
Sounds like a more absurd, on-steroids version.

I knew sucide was the answer to finish the year.

Did they do something about the infinite lives bug/glitch?

I have yet to hoard that many lives to find out. It's on my to-do list for sure. But considering that this feels like the definitive version of Pink Sweets, I am sure that it's fixed. The game's a lot of fun to play.

It's no washed up 360 Arrange mode either and still feels like the real deal. It's also much better than 1.01.

Too cool. I'm guessing it's in an arcade somewhere? Any idea what it's running on?

Interesting that it has the "2017 Cave Co Ltd" copyright on the title screen. Anybody played through to the credits? I'd imagine if it's a rom-hack by someone other than Cave they would put there name on it somewhere. Here's to hoping its actually a stealth Cave release and we get to play it in some form soon.

It's at Mikado in Takadanobaba (Tokyo). Here are larger versions of basically the same pics Plasmo posted (someone had the same idea):

Come on stop the tease! :o

After Gun Frontier Special, and some other games we only got glimpses of from Shou not too long ago, that's too much frustration.

Too many obscure UVO's for my heart.

EDIT: okay found out it's a cursed pcb designed by YGW alone in his secret dungeon, to take revenge on the shmuppers who mocked his games and Cave who demoted him to janitor. Anyone who clears it will feel an irresistible compulsion to hang himself. Plasmo is in danger.

You sure you aren't just talking about vanilla Pink Sweets?

I'm with the side that assumes the infinite lives bug is not a bug, so nope. :P

in secret I still hope to actually clear that game without it, some day...

The game has no infinite lives! You can collect up to 5 lives in stock, then it stops, just as in e.g. Garegga.

This is pretty crazy, quite the curve ball from Cave.

Based on the bullet patterns in the screenshots and the fixing of the infinite lives glitch, I think it’s pretty safe to say this is a new release. Hopefully it gets distributed and is not some crazy one-off (Matsuri board).

Someone has to have clued Cave in that their late release games are selling for 3x-4x what the msrp was on Yahoo Japan. Maybe, just maybe they have pulled their heads out their asses, realized they are leaving money on the table and will be printing pcbs again.

It’s fun to have wishful thinking on Christmas, right?

Thanks for sharing those pics, this is exciting!!

I think it's more likely a rom hack like Progear Red Label, not an official release.

Shou has it (this might be his board that he loaned out), so ask him for details.

Those bullet patterns are exactly the same as they are in the original game. (In order: stage 4 midboss timeout pattern, stage 6 boss final phase, stage 5 midboss timeout pattern)

Guess it's the usual; maybe some day, could be in many years, could be next week. If I understand things a bit persons like Shou don't realy have the rights to do whatever they want with some of the boards they manage to see and try, either because they simply don't own them, or because the owner/author specifically forbid the dump/copy for X or Y reason and betraying their trust means kissing goodbye to many future opportunities for actual dumps and therefore preservation.

+1 to this. With a lower zan count (essentially half), and the name of suicide club, I would have expected more of a Bakraid like dynamic, which would have been unbelievably awesome. Anyway, thanks Plasmo for the heads up on this! Interested in learning more about any changes in game balance.
