Unique Gameplay Mechanics
This game uses a system that's like a mix of ufo and pcb, you have multiple different kind of beast spirits to collect, wolf, eagle, otter, and a few others related to points/lives/bombs. When you collect 5 you enter roaring mode for whichever beast spirit you collected 3 or more of, or into a generic roaring mode that doesn't buff you but retains cherry border-like properties. Roaring mode either eventually ends by time out or ends when you get hit, absorbing the hit and deleting nearby bullets. Either way any life or bomb pieces collected in those 5 collected beast spirits will now be directly collectable. Each roaring mode has different properties, wolf roaring mode immensely buffs your focus shot, otter roaring mode gives you a ring that deletes nearby bullets, and eagle roaring mode immensely buffs your unfocused shot.
