Unfortunately the first "real" touhou game is a step down from the arkanoid-type game the first one was. All the ingredients of a standard touhou are here, good music, bad art, multiple gamemodes, stuff like that. The problem is ZUN clearly hadn't got their training wheels off when it came to shmup design. It's really simple stuff, enemies being hard to differentiate from the background. Sometimes enemies will spawn on the bottom side of the screen and just kill you instantly and you have to memorize where they spawn. Criticizing it is redundant because obviously it was learned from, and there's fun to be had here, but it's still not a good game with all those issues. Also the ending is completely incomprehensible.
