Gameplay

Shoot down the enemies and do not let bullets hit Ayumu at his weak point. Grazing bullets, or bullets that pass through Ayumu, will charge the Lucidity meter. Activating Lucidity will slow down all bullets on the screen for a short period of time. Dealing damage to enemies will charge the Serenity meter, which when activated, will reduce Ayumu's size but increase his damage output. Bombs can be used to clear the screen of bullets and deal heavy damage, but are best reserved as a lifeline with the Autobomb function.
