Round 9 - Batsugun!


For round 9, we will play Batsugun!

A 1993 shmup from Toaplan

It was one of their last games before they went defunct, and is widely regarded as the first ever "manic" or bullet hell game.

Therefore it has an interesting place in gaming history, positioned between oldschool and newschool shmups. It's about time we played it for the RGC. One wonders what went through the minds of the first ever players of Batsugun when they saw so many bullets for the first time   :-D

 Goal will be the usual: See how far you can get on 3 credits. 

No time frame on this one, we'll just play it casually until we get tired of it. 

GO GO GO GO GO !!!!!


  1. Weird I need 5 credits to play like 3.

  2. Man, I managed to beat the boss of stage 4! I bombed the hell out of it because I had over a credit left. Then died shortly after on stage 5.

    What is progress so far? Which is your favorite ship?

    I'm mainly playing with the girl's. It's slightly harder at first but then it pays off after reaching weapon level 3.

  3. Hey, besides Batsugun, I've been playing Gemini Wing. This game is old school as fuck, but actually not bad at all.
