Samidare is a vertical shooter by Project Blank featuring fairly bland sprites yet imaginative use of bullet patterns. The demo only showcases one level but there are two boss encounters to test your bullet-dodging skills.

Bosses have a few attack patterns, each triggered after taking a certain amount of damage. Projectiles come thick and fast, so it's not surprising that your ship will often be trapped with no room to maneuver around the bullets. Fortunately shields can be activated by pressing the X key, although it does consume your energy as indicated at the bottom left of the screen.

When taking hits with your shields activated, the strength of your firepower increases depending on the number of bullets you absorbed. Particularly useful during boss battles as they can be slightly difficult to defeat at times.
