Let's be fair for a moment. Shoot 'em ups (shmups) made in the last twenty years have been labeled many things - boring, repetitive, old-fashioned, unfair, and purely dependent on memorization. This all made the genre stop growing until it was only appealing to a certain niche market.
Trying to break the mold without breaking the core of what makes shoot 'em ups fun, the team behind Roche Fusion worked hard to create a game that can bring back this genre for mainstream gamers. Since the team consists of two different generations, we were easily able to take what people loved about the shmup genre and combine it with all the things they currently love in newer genres.
