Been playing this one a bit lately when I want to procrastinate doing work and can be confident it won't turn into 2 hours. Psikyo games be fast yo.

Anyway, pretty interesting combo of brawling and arena shooting. Would have expected more of the former from a Psikyo game since even their "pure" shmups tend to have a heavy emphasis on close range aggression, but I'm finding that (with my character at least) the general meta if you're not speedrunning is to spend more time at range and only go for melee when it's absolutely positively safe to do so (and you have a plan, Psikyo games are strict). Still, the combination of shooting and heavy hitting, hit-stun laden specials that lock you in place is very interesting with its emphasis on punishing enemies and such.

Think I might be able to 1-all this one without too much effort. So far stuck on Cat Lady Beauty, and I kinda have no idea how to deal with the bosses afterwards without a million bombs/health.
