KABUTANS
Finding a Kabutan will earn you a puzzle piece.

SCORING TIPS
Building your combo is the key to earning high scores.

Any enemy you destroy is worth your combo value x the enemy's base point value. As long as your combo gauge is maintained, your combo will grow as you hit enemies or cancel bullets with Explosion Seeds.

Your combo gauge decreases with time, but hitting an enemy pops it back to MAX. You can also preserve it by picking up amber gems. While you're charging an Explosion Seed, your combo gauge will not decrease as quickly.

If you get hit or let your combo gauge cut out, your combo will be reset to x1.

Beating certain enemies will transform all bullets on screen into amber gems. When your combo gauge is above a certain level, you will also be able to pick up amber gems a little further from you.

In Another World...

A melancholy song drifts on
the wind far from Shinju Forest...

On the cliffs stands a young girl, gazing distantly
and playing her flute.

"Hakugin, where are you?
Please, say something..."

"Gather to me..."
"...my Koju..."

"That voice! Hakugin!? I can hear him..."

"I've got to find him. Hold on Hakugin."

Having won their battle with Larsa, Reco and Palm
began their lives in peaceful Shinju Forest.

This quiet morning finds Reco gathering Burst Seeds on
her walk around the forest, and Palm playing in the
sky with his dragon Hirow. A day that could last forever...

How could they know that an event so distant
would drag them into the fray...
