With the current sale on, I feel like picking some up. So I would like to know which are the best ones to go for? The few I'm already aware of are:

- Sky Force Reloaded (bought it last night, I really like it)
- Crimzon Clover (bought it last night, might already be one of the best I've ever played)
- The three Cave SHMUPs of course are kind of a given (of the three, I'm prioritising Mushihimesama)
- Jamestown (bought it but had to get it refunded due to graphical glitches that made it unplayable, I'll just wait for Jamestown+)

Any recommendations are appreciated, thanks.

Raiden 4 is my favorite on steam, and Satazius is pretty good for a doujin.

Hmm, I was actually about to buy Satazius but someone said in a review that it didn't have controller support despite saying on the store page that it does. Is this true?

I have not checked for a few years, but back in 2015 it struggled with some dpads. That means you had to map your stick to put out signals for analog knob. Zero effort on a Brook PCB stick, for others it involves work.
No idea if they patched it since then.
