(Disclaimer: Week 3 Review)

This is probably the best Touhou gacha game out there right now gameplay-wise. I'm very surprised that it took this long to get a shmup in this scale onto mobile devices. The visuals and presentation are clean and striking, the soundtrack is good (as usual), and the story seems interesting from what I've read so far. However, this game doesn't seem to have much staying power right now, due to the strange choices it has made.

The stamina system (AP) is brutal if you are starting out. Although it regens at 10 minutes for 1 AP (Max is 100), you will level up pretty quickly so you will end up overflowing. So you would start doing character stories/events to drain AP, but each run would take 15-25 minutes (no autoclear), which won't be looked at favoredly for basic dailies. If you aren't proactive, I'm sure you'll just end up with too much AP that is kept everyday, and you will end up wasting a bunch of regen everyday.

Then there is the shmup gameplay. Using 30 AP, you will play 5 unique stages, and you just clear them. However these 5 stages are only unique to the story. If you were to replay the story, you play the exact same 5 stages, which will become monotonous as you grind that. You will probably say, "Isn't that just mainline Touhou?". There's a difference between playing stages because you feel like doing it and playing stages because you need to use AP so that it doesn't cap. You will end up just burning out at some point if you keep that mindset for a while.

The characters are also pretty important when playing a Touhou game as well. You will have Reimu, and then a free character chosen at random. The only way to obtain new characters is through the gacha, which is a bad decision in my opinion. As its a shmup, there is already little variety in how its played: shoot and dodge, so having them being locked behind that isn't nice to say the least. On the plus side, there isn't a big power gap between the worst and best character, so you can play whoever you like without worrying about being suboptimal.

Then, there's the gacha. There is a character and weapon (card) banner: 2.5% to spark a 5* and 200 pity to guarantee. The banner characters are limited, so you won't be able to get Aya anymore as of right now. If you obtain the banner character before 200, the pity will reset. Strange idea, it means if 2 banner characters are running, you can't use the guarantee to get the other banner character if you already got one early.

As for the endgame, it's where it gets polarizing. There's only a couple things you can do. First, the Tower, which is basically a long list of stages that increase in difficulty. Next are the character stories and events, only good for if you need a better kit for a character, or for event currency. Lastly are the boss rush stages, done once a day, but you can select the difficulty you want. There isn't much depth put into anything besides the gameplay.

In conclusion, I still think its a good Touhou game since it is "free", and it's worth a try if you have ever played any mainline Touhou. But I wouldn't recommend playing it for the gacha itself, unless you really want a character you like. I can appreciate the amount of effort put into this, but as I stand:

Good game, but keep playing only if you feel like it's still fun.

Edit 1 (11/29/23): With the first event now being released, there is now another source to use AP (Stamina), although you would still need to do the usual 20-30 minute runs in there as well.

Edit 2 (12/11/23): Since I've reached level 22, the highest level as of now (not anymore 12/14), I added a category for the state of the endgame. They also fixed linking accounts and the loading glitch, so I've removed that entire paragraph. I've decided to overhaul most of the review since its 3 weeks into the game, and I've gotten out of the honeymoon period.

Aunque visualmente puede ser algo simple, los combates me gustaron. Me parece un shoot 'em up entretenido con buenas ilustraciones.
El drop rate teórico es favorable y el BGM resulta destacable.
Cabe mencionar que la animación L2D de los personajes se puede activar al asignarlos al lobby.
En cuanto al aspecto técnico, en reiteradas ocasiones la app dejaba de responder y tuve que reiniciarla. Además, pude notar que le falta compatibilidad con algunos dispositivos.
Al final sí me parece un producto que vale la pena probar si los RPG tipo shoot 'em up con desplazamiento lateral y/o si la franquicia Touhou son de interés. Sin embargo, considero que tendrán que mejorar su rendimiento.
Por último, pienso que puede terminar opacado por títulos similares que están más pulidos como Sky Fortress: Odyssey.

def a much needed touhou shmup game, lots of replayability with the shikigami for ez griding, though the gatcha could be improved, there are too many chars to make some just "special banner" only.
Good selection of song remixes from all previous mainline games
could be big if it went global.

Currently getting an error, "データの更新があります", so presumably either some launch issues, or maybe waiting on an update?

I love Touhou. This must be the best Touhou title on Mobile Phone. There were many amazing titles so far on this contemporary Touhou, but this one comes back to Azure Reflection moments and it looks very similar to original experiences, too. Dialogues are voiced, the art is awesome, as always, and the music is beyond human knowledge. However... I would love to play this on a bigger screen (Yes, PC!) [可憐][可憐] I hope this title gets enough reception. It was very sad to see Danmaku Kagura closing (as I expected from previous DeNA games). I hope they fix the story mode sprites, because they are tiny / huge (they don't take the shape of my screen). I have no words for this Touhou title, simply amazing! Let's make a wish for a PC port [大哭]

<Hero Stories> a guy that you may hate... Chapter 1: Rogue Jack Once upon a time, there was a naughty boy named Jack. He and his mother lived in a poverty-stricken village. Some of the village's inhabitants had gathered, making an organization of thieves. Everyone talked about thefts and who to steal from, exchanging information with each other. Jack, having grown up in such a village, quickly learned how to steal. His innate talent helped him acquire a powerful arsenal of skills that helped him steal from difficult targets with ease. He even stole from other thieves. The villagers' loot would be there one moment and gone the next. Cursing this mysterious thief, they named him Rogue. No one really knew who Rogue was, no matter how much they tried to find out his identity. The villagers used to suspect Jack, but they lost interest in him - there was no evidence to prove that Jack was the culprit... Chapter 2: Enchanted Horse Although Jack succeeded in making fools out of the villagers, he was still bored. He decided to leave the village and steal things from the outside world. It didn't take that much time before his thief name was spread throughout Oz. Soon enough, the rich realized the importance of being protected against theft. The new rules they made gave the citizens a sense of security, but wiped all thieves aside from Jack. It didn't matter what happened - whatever Jack wanted, Jack got. One day, Jack heard about the king's enchanted horse. It was said that the horse could take its master anywhere, sea or land or air. Wanting to steal it, Jack gathered information on the horse. Making his way to the palace, Jack rolled up his sleeves - he was ready. Chapter 3: Copper Horn Jack disguised himself as a messenger from a faraway land. He quietly crept up the the gate, but as soon as he got to the entrance, a copper horn started to blare. It was too late for Jack to run, so he decided to cut his own arm and lay on the floor. When the guards came, Jack told them that there was a mysterious assassin that had knocked him down and gone in. Believing Jack, the guards let him into the palace. There, Jack snuck into the king's vault, where all the king's treasures were kept... Chapter 4: Gold Crow While Jack was searching for a way to enter the vault, he heard a crow outside squawk. Confused, he paused for a moment, and then heard footsteps pace down towards the room he was in. The crow sang every hour, and the king asked his servants to check on the crow every time it sang. Nowhere left to run, Jack hopped into the king's bed, covered himself, and pretended to be the king during his afternoon nap. His false snoring fooled the servants, who found no issue with the sleeping figure. Soon after the servants left, Jack found a switch that opened the vault gate. Seeing the skill with which it had been crafted, Jack's eyes widened... Chapter 5: Beanstalk Saga Jack couldn't wait to ride on the horse, but he couldn't. He'd spent half the day trying to figure out how to hitch a ride on it. Finally, he found a nail on the horse's side. After pulling it out, the horse started to shake violently. Frightened, Jack got off the horse just in time for it to launch itself into the air and disappear out of sight. Confused, Jack scratched his head and snuck back out of the palace. Then, Jack went to the Fairy Forest, planning to see the sights and steal some things. He didn't find any fairies, but he did see an old man casting spells. Seeing a pouch on the man's belt, Jack took his chance and stole it away. And thus, Jack's adventure with the Wonder Stalk began...
