Bullet Heaven #147 Double Feature - Strike Witches: Hakugin no Tsubasa

nime licensed games are often of the RPG or Visual Novel type these days. That's not to say that others don;t exist, far from it. But often, the Visual Novel style will bleed heavily into the other genre in question. Strike Witches: Hakugin no Tsuabasa is one such game... but as a super light-on-story, fanservice-heavy property to begin with, how does it stack up?

Bullet Heaven HD, Episode 133 - Supercharged Robot Vulkaiser

n episode 128 of Bullet Heaven HD, we took a look at Astro Port's Armed Seven, a sidescrolling mech-based shmup. It's not the only mech based "pure" STG they've released though; the 70's anime-soaked Supercharged Robot Vulkaiser is also a pretty neat addition to Astro Port's roster. But how does it stack up?

Bullet Heaven HD, Episode 129 - Cyberpunk 3776

he Euroshmup is often a subject of great debate in more traditionalist circles. Oftentimes, mechanics like lifebars and shields are put in place to hide their unrefined gameplay. But some Euroshmups are pretty great,as evidenced by Duranik's Sturmwind, which we looked at in episode 118 of Bullet Heaven HD... but how does the ultra-nihilistic Cyberpunk 3776 fare?
