Most side scrolling shooters look the same, they featuring minute differences that only fans of the genre would notice. Lately, the genre only seems to try to become harder and harder, focusing on overwhelming players with bullet patterns that make one millimeter the difference between life and death. The Touhou series gives players 0.3 seconds to fire off a bomb to avoid death after being shot, while Mushihime-sama differentiates itself with insane bullet patterns that most humans can't dodge. Suguri takes a different approach and provides a means for the player to fly past bullet patterns, making it more accessible to casual and newer players.
