    Not sure I can compete with that... but I did get to 24th on the world leaderboard on Blazing Star in caravan mode for the Switch, anyone else playing?

    You've both summed up how I feel about Danmaku Unlimited 3, also after only half a dozen games or so. I've been playing a lot of the Psikyo shooters and found Danmaku to be almost a detached sort of experience. The lack of background graphics and huge enemy ships mean that there's really only the bullet dodging to concentrate on - at least at my superficial beginner level. There's clearly some deeper mechanics to fathom - the description 'more of a rhythm/puzzle game than a shooter' seems about right. My main lament is the lack of on-line leaderboards in this and the Psikyo titles. It really seems like a cheap exclusion on a high score based game format. Hopefully updates to follow, chasing your personal best does get a little dull with no broader context to your score. I will come back to it but I'm hooked on Blazing Star at the moment. I have it emulated on CoinOps 7 for TV play and on GPDXD for handheld but the combination of the Switch ergonomics and the desire for some leaderboard / caravan mode play made it worth buying. Caravan mode is excellent although to be fair my 3 lives barely last 5 minutes so it doesn't really matter which mode I play I did get to 48th in the world yesterday. The retro-fitting of a new game mode and on-line leaderboards seems to have been handled well on this title.

    Thanks for the recommendations, had a little spend up and bought Danmaku Unlimited 3, Flinthook and Blazing Star. Nice to get a few pence off as well with the new 'cashback' system on the e-shop. Evening sorted.

    Just picked a copy of this up in my local charity shop for £2.

    I find the controller a bit twitchy, especially when you get to the 3rd stage and need faster reflexes. It's another great vertical switch game though, a vast improvement over holding my GPD XD on its side and creaking my wrist. Any scores to share...?

    I bought Samurai Aces and Gunbird last night to go along with Strikers 1945. There's definitely a common formula to them all and probably just about enough variety to justify purchasing them all. I found Samurai Aces was the harder of the 3 to get into. Still lamenting the lack of online leaderboards though, you'd think that was a pre-requisite for a score chasing game. Hopefully a patch-in update will follow if the sales justify it.

    Gunbarich has more in common with Arkanoid that anything else but is still recognisably a Psikyo game in its presentation and style.

    We should have some sort of unofficial forum high score table for the Psikyo games, the lack of online leaderboards is the only reason I haven’t bought more of the games. Does anyone else here have Gunbarich?

    That's odd, my shopto order says first class. Not at home to see whether it has arrived yet or not though.

    I caught about 8 Pikachu in 15 minutes while doing our Tesco shopping. Can't transfer one of one of them because it's a shiny...is there any benefit to having a shiny or is it just something else to collect?
