PokéDigiDanmaku is a 6 Stage + Extra Touhou-esque vertically scrolling shmup featuring Veemon as the player character. Veemon is able to swap between different forms, each with their own strengths and weaknesses, and this is the key to the game. There are six base difficulties (Very Easy, Easy, Normal, Hard, Lunatic, and Overdrive).
In PokéDigiDanmaku, follow Veemon on his journey through the mysterious unknown world that lies before him!
PokéDigiDanmaku was my primary project in Danmakufu 0.12m and was an integral part of developing my own coding style and creating my 0.12m system. However, I will let the official post and the release post do most the talking - they sum up the entire project. Please do read the release post, as it contains all of the emotions that accompanied the uneventful release of this game.
Overall, making PDD was a really interesting and valuable experience for me. Terrible lack of plot and poor planning aside, it's a pretty solid game. It may not have the fanfare or quality of the work of someone more experienced, but it was what got me on the path of "I can do this and therefore, I will." It's system is simple, its danmaku solid, albeit completely unbalanced, and the item spawn patterns are both confusing and elegant at the same time.
