A bullet hell shmup from Japanese developer Visco, Vasara 2 is actually a prequel to the original Vasara, but both take place in a feudal Japan that is for some reason populated by giant robots, flying battleships and heroes on hover bikes. The game's characters, based on quasi-historical Japanese figures of the period, each bring different weapons into battle against villain Oda Nobunga, but all have both a close-range charge-up melee attack that destroys enemy projectiles and the Vasara ability, charged by collecting gems dropped by enemies, in addition to standard attacks. The Vasara attack clears the screen of bullets and severely damages enemies, something you'll need to manage to endless fields of bullets and enemies. Killing bosses with your melee attack yields flags, part of the Prestige Kill System that powers an increasing score multiplier. Though not one of the best-known or loved games of its type, Vasara 2 is another option for shmup fans looking for something new (that's somewhat old).
