Character Information
Playable Characters: 4
(Reimu, Marisa, Aya, Tanned Cirno)
Shot Types: 5 Each
Despite it being midsummer, the seasons in various locations are completely out of whack. The Hakurei Shrine is showered in cherry petals, Youkai Mountain is basking in the middle of autumn, and the Forest of Magic is blanketed in snow... and thanks to some strange force, Gensokyo's fairies are running rampant with unfathomable strength. In the midst of this undeniable incident, the girls set out to investigate and find the perpetrator behind it.
Unique Gameplay Mechanics
Since the whole game is based around seasons, it'd make sense for the seasons to come into play when you pick your player. As such, along with your main shot, you get to pick a season specific sub shot. Each sub shot is essentially a weaker version of the matching main shot (so Sub Spring is homing, just like Reimu's Main Shot). Your sub shot also changes what Release you have. The Extra Stage has its own unique sub shot that can only be used during it (and is the only sub shot that can be picked there).

Season Items and Options
When you get into the game, you'll notice a bar on the bottom left. This is the release bar. When you collect season items, it fills up, and when it's full, you gain one sub shot option. The bar can be filled up to 6 times, giving a total of 6 options.
But how do you get season items you ask? Simple my good sir! Season items are generated by:
* Killing enemies
* Grazing bullets
* Erasing bullets

At this point, you may be wondering what a Release is. A Release is a circular field that spawns when you press the C button, as long as you have at least one charge on your Release Bar. Using a release uses up all of your Release Bar, and grows stronger the more charges are used up. As well, erasing bullets with a Release is the only way to increase point item value. As mentioned earlier, the season sub shot changes what the properties of your Release does.
* Spring - Spring's Release has the shortest duration of the Releases, but has the largest range out of all of them, with a 6 charge Release clearing practically the entire screen. Additionally, this release temporarily makes you invincible.
* Summer - Summer's Release is the second shortest Release, but has the unique property of only using up one charge per use instead of every charge.
* Autumn - Autumn's Release creates a circle around you that follows you as you move, with the size of the circle decreasing over time. The more charges used slows down the size decrease. Along with this, for the duration of the Release, your movement speed is increased.
* Winter - Winter's Release is the longest of the four seasonal Releases, creating a circle at the spot where you used the release. The more charges used up, the longer the Release lasts. As well, for the duration of the Release, the amount of damage you deal is increased.
* Dog-Days/Border - The unique Release for the EX Stage. The shot itself fires backwards, and the Release combines aspects of the other Releases. Like Summer, Void only uses up one charge instead of all of them, creating a circle that quickly decreases in size like Autumn, and drifts backwards.
*Scorefile has 100% completion

While it used to work perfectly well for me, it started acting up a couple months ago. I've downloaded this game at least eight times since then, and every time it automatically closes before getting to the title screen. Is there any way to fix this? I'd like to be able to play it again.

okay so basically the virustotal link gives me 20 detections, which unlike the regular 2-3 doesnt give me the feeling its false, could anyone tell me if its still all false or it actually has malware on it?

It's an old scan from a previous file that we don't use anymore. I've updated the scan with the current archive that we use for the patched download

I checked the file with virus total and it came with a few hits. https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/1f21df67fe1778c2f44d6851ff7b346a6681d9f3f958f5462703805a553dee77/detection That's the File  scanned

ThPatch's translations are injected directly from their site, that's why your anti-virus is triggering, we can't do anything about that because they don't do standalone patches anymore.
I thought this was written in the description already, i'll fix that.

For anyone having issues with the scorefile, the scorefile is no longer placed in the game's folder. Instead, you need to go into your %appdata% Roaming folder, after running the game to generate the folders. Inside should be a ShanghaiAlice folder and in that is the th16 folder which is where you place the scorefile.

It happened something with the file of this game and the one of th 15.5 when I tried to open.
The one of 15.5 I unzipped it and I couldn't start the program(?. And the other I directly couldn't unzip bcs the system said that ''it was damaged'' the file. I don't know why this happened bcs all the other games were executed correctly in my PC :(.
