Easily the best hummingbird-based shooter on the Sega 32X. The atmosphere in this game is fantastic but the gameplay was just kinda eh, I don't really remember it being that crazy. The final level is a ludicrously high difficulty spike that made me realize this was made by the ecco the dolphin guy, so yeah everything checks out. Honestly deserves a play as there's definitely no other game out there like this.

Could've started a shmup genre revolution

Le vert colibri, le roi des collines,
Voyant la rosée et le soleil clair
Luire dans son nid tissé d'herbes fines,
Corme lm frais rayon s'échappe dans l'air.
II se hâte et vole aux sources voisines,
Ou les bambous font le bruit de la mer,
Ou I'aoka rouge aux odeurs divines
S'ouvre et porte au cœur un humide éclair.
Vers la fleur dorée il descend, se pose,
Et boit tant d'amour dans la coupe rose
Qu'il meurt, ne sachant s'il l'a pu tarir.
Sur ta lèvre pure, o ma bien-aimée,
Telle aussi mon âme eut voulu mourir,
Du premier baiser qui l'a parfumée.

bizarre, barely able to discern what you do but I love the vibes this emits

i got stuck at one point but i want to go back to it sometime

I don't even remember how I came into owning this game, maybe I found it clearanced in the stores but i'm glad i did get it. This is kind of the spiritual successor to Ecco the Dolphin except much better. It's similar to that game in it has it's own vibe going for it where it feels super atmospheric. It's got a strange surreal story like Ecco. Unlike Ecco though this one has a more arcade gameplay style. It plays like a space shooter except your a humming bird. You can get different weapons and upgrades to shoot other animals and such an explore really vast levels. Just watch a little game play to get what I mean. It's OST is really good at selling it. I'd like to try this game out again sometime.
