Chibi Akumas: Episode 2 – Confrontation, Shooter Sequel Blasts onto Amstrad CPC

It was on the last day of 2016 — a fine year for gaming for the Amstrad CPC — when gamers got to experience the madness of the ‘bullet hell shooter’ that was Chibi Akumas: Episode 1 – Invasion, and now, just in time for Halloween 2017, the sequel has landed. And just like the first game, Chibi Akumas: Episode 2 has features that takes advantage of an Amstrad CPC computer equipped with 128k and even 256k of memory. “Insane Gothic-Comedy 8-Bit Bullet Hell” shooting is here…

Chibi Akumas: Episode 2 – Confrontation, to give the game its full title, follows on from the first game. Trouble is brewing in the small town of Nicoyama. The evil Chibiko is causing havoc, killing inhabitants, massacring her neighbours, and with her brother resurrected, things are getting worse. An old myth tells of two great warriors who fight evil wherever they find it. The residents of Nicoyama hope and pray that these heroes will come and save their town, but they get the infamous Hero Twins instead. With their big egos, selfish justice, and questionable tactics, the residents don’t know whether things have got better or worse…

Anyone who has played the first game will know what to expect here, as the bullet hell shooter is the core of the gaming experience. However, there are many improvements and additions here. First of — for 128k gamers, at least — there is a fantastic simultaneous two-player option where the players can choose between Chibiko (who returns from her first outing) and a brand new character (who renamed a secret right up to the game’s launch). Other features include new power ups, a new fire mode, secret new modes, dialog and jokes (relevant to character playing), five new levels (each with their own style and guardians), guardian battles enhanced for 256k systems, new music for each level, Onscreen Insults during battles, improved cut scenes, unlockable achievements, and much more.

Watch the fabulous preview video (above), then visit the game’s website to check out the characters bios, read up on the guide, and grab the game itself, which is absolutely free.
