Critic Reviews for Crimzon Clover - World EXplosion

Crimzon Clover: World EXplosion is a rare entry within the genre that manages to be inviting to shmup rookies, while also giving the hardcore veterans plenty of challenge to chew on thanks to its carefully considered mechanics and swathe of options.

While Crimzon Clover does owe a tremendous debt to many arcade shooters through the 1990s and 2000s, it's clear that Yotsubane has a great love and understanding of them. It's not only a homage (look at the default high score table for some familiar initials) but also brings some mechanical brilliance that makes it stand out against most of its doujin shoot-em-up peers, and enough to hang with the genre greats. It's flashy, it's exciting, it's addictive, and it's an essential purchase for genre fans.

Maybe it's because of my age, but Crimzon Clover: World Explosion is one of the non-Ring Fit games where I felt exhausted after a session. It's surprisingly demanding if you're not used to these kinds of space shooters. I can see why the hardcore fans eat this game up, and it's a very well designed game. It's just not something I'd recommend for relaxing after a tough day at work.
