If you frequent the chatbox whenever I'm around, you know that I play this obscure series of games. Touhou is a series of shoot-em-ups, produced by Team Shanghai Alice, which is actually comprised of one man, who goes under the pseudonym of ZUN. In most of the games, you play as either Reimu Hakurei, a shrine Maiden, or Marisa Kirisame, a witch in an attempt to solve a bizarre, supernatural incident.
There are 5 games for the (now obselete) PC-98, so the windows series starts at 6. Most of the series are shmups, however, there are 3 spin-off fighters too.
If you want a link to where you can download the games, then PM me. I don't bite~. If you're a big shmup fan then do try them out, as they are a lot of fun. Also frustration, since they can be very difficult in the latter halves of the games!
You may wish to visit the Touhou Wiki for backstory, plots and character backgrounds.
^That video shows a playthrough of one of the stages, specifically, Touhou 10: Mountain of Faith stage 4, normal difficulty.

Oh hey. Didn't see this here. Looks like this thread hasn't gotten the love it deserves.
I saw a blog that had links to most, if not all, of the Touhou series, including various spin-offs such as MegaMari. I got my hands on Touhou from somewhere else, so it don't matter to me. I got some of the spin-offs from that blog, along with some danmaku....maker? idk what that's all about but I has it. lol. Too bad I don't remember the url. I can't even remember what I was googling.
Well I tried to play them, and everything runs extra slow. I gotta clean up my computer a bit. Even Samidare doesn't run at 30 fps when I set it to that. And I know that worked before.
Also, I thought ZUN was the music guy. He's a beast if what you say is true.

ZUN does it all. Gameplay, Music, graphics. The credit list for the games is humorously short.
But yeah, Touhou music is beast. I haven't got all of the original music on mah ipod, but I've got most of it, and what I have amounts to 109 tracks, all of which are original and ear-gasm worthy. To say nothing of the remixes, of which there are thousands~
And Imma get rid of the link. Anyone interested can shoot me a PM for them.
Guess I'll take the picture down too. You know, we can share replay data if anyone wants to. They're always in a folder cleverly named "replay".
TH3 is mad fun. I can only imagine playing multiplayer. I don't think I've ever seen a game like that ever. There needs to be more of that. The ds needs a game like that. It'd be handled the same was tetris ds does multiplayer.
Ah. I guess I'll try TH9 first and hope my computer doesn't explode.
I found the blog I was talking about. I guess I'll leave that to PMs. It's a blogspot blog and has links to alot of stuff. Fan stuff like "MegaMari", and th1-12.8(most in one post), and stuff that don't matter probably. But I think s/he has ads all over the page, so beware(no-script was allows 2/12 for me).
While I was looking for that, I found this and I think it's awesome. Replays is one of my favorite features a game could include. It's just amazing that not every game has that. And the ones that do don't do it like Touhou. So that page is interesting imo. idk if the THP wikia links to that page some how/if it's common knowledge/if it matters to the rest of the world, But that deserved getting linked to.
No, that's nothing like Touhou, it's a silly westernised shmup, but I digress. I'll PM you d/l links, and you can try real shmupsTouhou for yourself.
Game was made in japan (just like most games nowadays) and Suda51 *main guy behind that game* even claimed it was partially based off it... well and pretty cure and its a parady mocking it in game by making fun of how highly successful the series is worldwide.
But still thanks for letting me get to try Now if only i could stop getting shot down every 8 seconds :P
