0

Of the games appearing in Edelweiss’ Comiket 89 game trailer compilation one that stood out is Imarisu.

 

It’s a shmup with a striking art style – a soft pixel art style that is easy on the eyes, standing out in a genre full of typically harsh and intense colors more fitting of a nightclub.

As to how it plays, it’s a classic wave-based style of shmup that has enemy ships coming in from all sides, moving in wiggly patterns. It’s very energetic and fast-paced too, encouraging you to take down waves as quick as possible, using a range of weapons and shields, while dodging barrages of bullets.

 

There’s a demo of Imarisu that you can download from its website and online documentation explains the basics.
