It was by the same programming crew, but a totally separate project Smile
Sort of like SALAMANDER is not a Gradius Game per-say...

Didnt know who was behind Pulstar programming...
this explain all the similarities lol

Psyvariar 2 for Dreamcast if i must choose one, great game but very tough.

Zero Gunner 2, Ikaruga and Gunbird 2 are also great on DC.

I don't play many Shmups but I do occasionally pop StarForce(NES) in, I also keep a copy of Recca Pure on my 3DS for long rides when I can't be assed to boot up an rpg, also partial to a bit of G-Darius on the PS2 whenever I can find the disc.

My favourite genre, very difficult to pick out one TBH, but i'll go with battle garegga on saturn, i love this game.
On another day, it could be einhander, super aleste, dodonpachi, Mushihimesama Futari, gaiares, gleylancer, slap fight, harmful park, parodius, lol i could be here all day.

Pulstar is way too hard, it's a total rip off of r-type IMO and a quarter muncher, if you die on the later levels you may as well start again, very much like gradius, you'll need god like skills to recover.

As I'm a Danmaku fan, nearly every CAVE games or games like Psyvariar or Crimzon Clover.
If I had to choose one, that would be Dodonpachi Saidaioujou. An excellent shmup !
