https://i0.wp.com/i2.photobucket.com/albums/y26/Chibi-Meower/blog/th049.jpgI finally decided to find this game and play it. I suck horribly at shooter games, so excuse my easy-mode screencaps. As a Note: Still gotta write for today, ToA after I hit 28K.

Touhou is pretty well known, and TH7 is probably the most known out of all of them. You can find versions online with an english patch (Which mine is), and it runs as a 800×600 game. Not the greatest graphics in the world, but the music is superb. Personal favorite is “Phantom Ensemble”, the Prismriver Sisters’ Theme Song.

https://i1.wp.com/i2.photobucket.com/albums/y26/Chibi-Meower/blog/th096.jpgThe Game takes place in Gensokyo. In Perfect Cherry Blossom it is May and the spring has not yet come. The main characters, Reimu, Marisa, and Sakuya head out on journies to save the spring. There are six stages for the main storyline, with two extra stages (Which I have yet to play). The first stage pits you against Chirno halfway through and Letty at the end. Simple bosses who reveal little about what is going on. Your chosen character rushes off to the second stage in https://i2.wp.com/i2.photobucket.com/albums/y26/Chibi-Meower/blog/th105.jpgwhich the Half-Animal Chen fights you in the town of Mayohiga. Keep on rolling and you end up against Alice Marigold appears along side her dolls. Flying up to the sky shows many cherry blossoms and pits you against Lily White and The Prismriver Sisters. Pushing her way through the two bosses brings you to the Netherworld to fight the ends of the game. Youmu appears, a half-ghost, half-human being boss who wants to take the spring from you to make the Youkai Cherry Tree, Saigyou Ayakashi, bloom. Rushing forth brings Youmu up again and soon after Yuyuko appears, the final boss.

If you used continues, you get the Bad Endings, and since I suck I didn’t get a good ending. D: So I shall get better.

https://i0.wp.com/i2.photobucket.com/albums/y26/Chibi-Meower/blog/th024.jpgThe game is well made and really addicting. The translations a bit weird, but the again so are the conversations. The conversations don’t seem to be linked in a specific way and sound weird at points. However, Sakuya’s line “That and a spare set of knives” followed by Alice saying “I… Uh… KNIVES?!” was hillarious. :3 I love Sakuya because of this set of lines. The music in the game is very pretty and so worth the play just to hear it in combat. The game is a curtain fire deal, and somtimes I get distracted because of the beautiful patterns the bullets form.

All in all, worth the download~. <3

Feel free to laugh at my horrid end-game score, I know it sucks.

  1. Hehe, (laugh) :P http://twitpic.com/lmwa

    How do you get five continues anyway? Mine only lets me go up to three…

  2. Options has it, the default is 3, but you can up it to 5. But if you want the good endings, it’s probably best to not up it. >_<; *needs to get better at this*

  3. Blogging like you do is such an art and you obviously have that skill here – I don’t but I did find this that made me smile so maybe I can return the favour by making you smile too?

    The person who knows how to laugh at himself will never cease to be amused. :)
