Some quick screenshots of me trying the trial game for Touhou Shinkirou ~ Hopeless Masquerade (東方心綺楼 ～ Hopeless Masquerade), aka TH 13.5
The game’s trial was released on the usual winter comiket, on December 30, 2012
but I have just got my hands on this game (actually it was in my computer for a month, just didn’t have time to touch it yet).
(Marisa looks toooooooo serious in this picture it’s just not the usual her xD)
since I do not know any of the game’s mechanics (actually I read it, but it’s pretty long I forgot lol)
so I kind of mashed the buttons by instinct
and I was having a much harder time because this time we really fight in the air…. I’m too used to stick on the ground ;-;
In case that the time runs out, the one with more popularity wins in this game (the guage at with the character’s picture, blue increases popularity and red decreases popularity)
HP bars are only used if you and your opponent has the same amount of popularity
the CPU is pretty good even this is just for a trial, beated me up once on our 2nd round (Ichirin is summoning Unzan and smashed me with his fists like crazy lol), I was playing on hard mode btw (Lunatic is quite too much for a new game especially with a new system, as to I don’t start with normal because I like challenging games)
But I won the CPU in the end by 2-1 on my first play
yep, spell card attack it is, with 100% popularity full blue guage (you will get a golden aura) just on my second try of this game!
(you can actually release a special attack called “Last Word” only with 100% popularity, but I didn’t use it because if I miss, my popularity will decrease dramatically)
Well, there are more and alot mechanics/systems in this game (yeah, just the trial) I’ll test it out more later. And I should probably go back to that website (or the TH wiki) to read some known manuals and systems of this game to get a perfect win next time >_<”
p.s. I like every single Touhou character, but I’m really going to be glorious happy and impressively hype if they include Momiji and Mokou in this game @____@ (have high hopes for Mokou, since she’s really popular, not sure whether Momiji will have a chance to appear in this game or not .__.)
