Critic Reviews for Touhou Double Focus

Ultimately, Touhou Double Focus is a game that appeals to a narrow slice of the gaming community. The tough Metroidvania mechanics won't be for everybody and the game has a bit of that rough, "dojin" or fan-made taste to it. If you enjoy old-school games with an indie feel and loads of Japanese flavor, however, this one just might humor the otaku in you.

There are some really great ideas found within Touhou Double Focus, but they aren’t fully executed here. The gameplay needs to be tighter if it’s going to focus on difficulty, and it pales in comparison to other difficult platformers like Shantae. If you get this as part of the physical copy of Touhou Genso Wanderer then by all means check it out, but Double Focus leaves a lot to be desired by itself.

Touhou Double Focus is a spin-off of Touhou Project: an uninspired metroidvania which lacks original ideas.

4.5 / 10.0

Metroidvania in Touhou Project series, where we trying to escape from a book world. I don’t recommend it though even for the fans due to broken gameplay.

Touhou Double Focus is a quirky Metroidvania that offers fun and challenging gameplay.

A fun game that is made to difficult by its HP system. Fans of Touhou and Metroidvania games will love it, but it might be a hard sell to outsiders.

Touhou Double Focus is a below average release that didn't grab my attention. If you're desperately looking for a Japanese platformer, I seriously recommend you to skip this release and play other better games on the PS Vita library. Save your time and money and avoid Touhou Double Focus!

Touhou Double Focus is a solid Metroidvania experience that's held back by its sheer mediocrity.
