QUANTIZED BLAZE is officially in my top 10 favorite shmups. A true gem from the maker of Nomltest FS and Sky Swimmer's Heaven, devoloper Keim (also known as Kei Mesuda) does it again.
You are a stylish ship flying on a scrolling chequer board. Protect your ships cockpit, it is your hitbox. Over the scrolling chequer board this visual orgasm has interweaving lines forming patterns and sprials in a way that it does not distract you, but it does look cool as hell. You have flames coming at you from the top of the screen. You can not let them pass you or you die. You have a water blaster you put out the flames with...(sounds cheesy..but looks amazing) The flames blast bullets at you that have their own flip animation. Each blaze you shoot plays a beat of music. Kind of like REZ. I love this in a game. This is a little thing, but it is very creative. The game starts out very easy, then the programed bullet patterns get pretty insane. Weaving in and out of perfectly placed bullets while trying to fight back the fire that is pushing its way towards you gets very tricky. Along with your Water Blaster you also have a bomb that will clear all of the flames off of your screen. It will not clear the bullets. So be careful.
Left Shift: Main fire
Shift: Go Back
At the Title Screen It will say Press Any Key to call 119..or something like that. PRESS SHIFT
the music in this video is not the game music. This video is really crappy. It does not do the game justice.
