Category:Shooting Games

Shooting games as they relate to doujin titles tend to be scrolling aerial shooters where the player evades attacks and shoots down numerous enemies and stronger bosses. Often referred to by terms such as "bullet hell" or "curtain fire" due to the usual tendency for these games to fill the screen with bullets and provide few small openings for player characters to slip through unharmed. These games also share other common features like the bomb (used to clear screens of bullets) and instantly killing the player if hit.
