Anyway, Touhou games are mainly danmaku, bullet hell shooters.

Touhou project is a series of mainly danmaku(bullet hell shooters). I am currently on the 6th. I am actually in love with this game, as it has pretty neat gameplay, cool graphics and great BGM. They also have a huge fanbase and is one of the nicest. Amazingly, the whole game is created by a one-man team, Shanghai Alice.


The plots of the Touhou Project revolve around the strange phenomena that occur in the fictional realm of Gensokyo in Japan. Long ago, it was a desolate place haunted by yokai who preyed on lost wanderers in the area. Soon exorcists were sent into the area to resolve the yōkai problem, and they eventually settled in the area as a check on the yōkai. As human civilization advanced elsewhere, the power of yōkai began to diminish and they chose to seal Gensokyo away from the outside world as a haven for themselves.As a result of the seal, the isolated community developed its own civilization. As opposed to the outside world, magical and spiritual qualities prevailed over science and while yōkai and humans coexist, they still fight with each other. The only known gateway from the outside world into Gensokyo is the Hakurei Shrine on the border of Gensokyo. However, the seal has weakened and more humans are able to wander into Gensokyo from the outside. Things disappearing from the outside world such as extinct animals and vanishing traditions tend to show up in Gensokyo.

You control a bishoujo throughout the whole game, dodging enemy bullets and destroying them, as well as facing off over 50 other cute female bosses. Oh yeah, one hit and you are dead. Looks pretty impossible at first, but in the middle of your character there is a tiny hitbox, if the bullets reach it, you are dead. If bullets enter the character sprite without touching the hitbox, you gain extra points. I’m going to tell you right now, the bullet patterns are smexy and the way you gracefully graze bullets is also godly.

The default controls are:
Z – Shot
X – Bomb
Shift – Focus
Arrow Keys – Movement
