Just discovered this one via Youtube.
(Deep breath) Flying Red Wine Barrel: A Diary of Little Aviator is a very cute shoot ’em up with graphics similar to the Todd Parr children’s books. (Which I’ve been reading to “Player 3” in utereo.. 3 weeks till baby’s due!)
Judging by the video, it’s not too crazy in the “bullet hell” stakes. (Sometimes I see Japanese shmup videos on Youtube, and they look far too difficult to be “fun”!)
Haven’t had a chance to try the demo yet, but I’m looking forward to giving it a go. My only concern is that compass/propeller “thing” in the upper left corner of the play area; it looks pretty distracting.
Flying Red Wine Barrel is a commercial shmup, but there is a demo available.
More cute-em-ups the better, I say! 🙂
