Apr 30, 2012I still occasionally play shmups via mame arcade emulator. After playing games like Blazing Star, DoDon Pachi, and Gigawing, (that were made 15 years ago, no less) this game seems completely pointless. The backgrounds might be the most boring i have EVER seen in a shmup. The action is slow, and the weapons are bland. Even more recent games in the genra, like Jamestown are much much better.
Jan 3, 2013Quite possibly the worst shmups I've ever played. Gameplay is ridiculously hard; for example, the last boss of Recollection has (at least) seven forms and my bombs healed her. Graphics are average to bad with two of the games having a very narrow FOV which makes any side scroller unnecessarily difficult. Overall this collection is below average for the genre and not worth picking up.
