Original-Gamer.com: "Shooters/shmups have always been a favorite genre of games to play when I want a quick gaming fix. Games like 1943, Raiden, R-Type and many others would challenge eye hand coordination, reflexes and patience against a hail of neon color bullets and enemies. But for some reason shooters/shmups haven't been making it over to the West as much as they have in the past. Sure there's games like Sine Mora and an updated version of 1942, but the games I'm talking about are the weird shooters / shmups. Games like DeathSmiles, or in the case of this review Mamorukun Curse."
