Hisyo Ayu is the prequel to Clannada, a shooter with oversized everyday items as your adversaries. Take on all sorts of sundry goods such as clocks, trees, swords, jars with mysterious contents, ducks, panda bears, cute furry creatures and more.

Controls are limited to directional keys, primary and secondary shot buttons. Smartbombs can be replenished by collecting hyper items dropped by vanquished enemies. When used, it clears bullets from a certain section of the playing area and doubles your firepower damage for a short while.

Bullets come thick and fast, especially near the end of the second stage. There's not much dodging that can be done, but fortunately hyper items are readily available in abundance. The first boss is a generic green frog, and the second one is probably the biggest bun I've seen in a shmup.

Plays a lot like a Psikyo shooter. Demo features two levels only. Direct download link here and here.
