Since then, I’ve played titles like DoDonpachi, Deathsmiles and many others.
There’s something about seeing the screen fill up with bullets and massive explosions as I battle seemingly impossible odds to actually beat a tough level/boss without using an infinite amount of continues.
As fun as it is, it’s not really a genre we see much of in the west on consoles.
So when I heard about “Astebreed” and how good it was from numerous sources, I decided to check it out.
