Touhou Eiyashou: Imperishable Night

This game features eight playable characters, with four starting preset teams of two and unlockable individual character modes. When playing with the character pairs, one character fires when unfocused, while the other switches in and fires when focused, with a reduction in movement speed. The two shot types can be drastically different. The individual characters, with the exception of Remilia and Youmu, do not change shot types while focusing/unfocusing. Imperishable Night features Last Spells. For the enemy, a Last Spell is a bonus Spell Card which the player can challenge without the option to use bombs and without the risk of losing lives. On the player side, Last Spells are secondary "bomb" Spell Cards, which last longer and do much more damage than normal bombs at the expense of two bomb stocks. Player Last Spells can only be used immediately after being hit, with a grace period of less than 1 second. Additionally, there is a "Time Orb" system which affects the story/score, as well as a gauge which tracks how human/youkai (normal/focused) you are and determines how you can collect more time orbs.

this one pretty fun, i like replaying it

Am I biased when I say this is THE best Touhou game? of course but anyways

This game is perfect. This game has everything. Duo teams for extra dialogue and interesting interactions between the two characters, a fantastic setting and mood, and it establishes characters that would go onto become fan favorites. This game was the point when Gensokyo went from just the setting to Touhou to the point where it became grounded in mythology and history, while also taking itself to new levels with the establishment of the Lunar Capital. This game is peak Touhou. This is the best touhou game. Everything about it is done flawlessly, but ESPECIALLY the soundtrack.
