A downloadable male alternate fantasy

Spinoff of Yotsubahou Reiiden ~ Crisis of Western Oriental Land showing the backside of the crisis incident.

Basically this just exists because I was still annoyed Yotsubahou Reiiden did not run on the Dreamcast due to its massive bullet count. So this spinoff is a mix of shmup and breakout gameplay, you have a paddle and return the balls the enemies shoot. In that way it's kind of similar to Beat 'Em Shmup, one of my Ludum Dare entries. Either way, the nice thing is that you have way fewer bullets, so it runs pretty smooth.

Controls for Dreamcast:

  • Movement - Arrow keys
  • Shoot/ Advance text/Select - A
  • Bomb / Skip Text - B
  •  Focus (move slower + see hitbox) - R Trigger
  • Skip warning screen - Enter
  • Open Pause Menu - Start

Install instructions


Burn the .cdi file to a CD-R using Padus Discjuggler 6.0 (https://www.afterdawn.com/software/cd_dvd/burning/padus_disc_juggler.cfm).  CD-RWs will not work. Burn at slow speeds, if possible. Put the CD-R in your Dreamcast. If it shows -Yotsubahou 1.5 executable- during the Sega logo screen, you did everything correctly.
