This bullet hell is pretty awesome, nice setup and gameplay. It's a must play for any danmaku fan.

I made a review in spanish about this game: https://retroorama.blogspot.com/2017/11/jigoku-kisetsukan-sense-of-seasons-un.ht...

This game is so good

Generally I don't stick to a itch.io game for too long because there are many, but as a Touhou fan I'll stick to this game for a long time

Definitively worthed to download, especially for a free game

It's when I see that I need directX is when I get so pissed since I put a comment saying the game won't work. I really hate myself right now


Where can I report bugs? I don't use Tumblr/Twitter for privacy reasons but I don't like the idea of putting it here in the comments so anyone can see it even if it's already fixed.


This game is great!, i can't believe that the game is free.


I still can't believe that this game is free. I would happily pay 10 bucks for this.
