Hoiuchi Sekai is an alright horizontal shooter which features an array of cute sprites, and though the game does work well enough the pace is slightly sedated with little of the manic action that is pretty much the hallmark of doujin shmups.

Plenty of power-ups to collect, but the omission of a hit point for your ship does make dodging bullets a rather tricky task. There are eight stages to beat, while an autofire option can be enabled in the configuration menu.

Instructions on navigating the Vector site can be found in the FAQ.

I enjoyed the game. It had charming graphics and the designs of enemies and levels were pretty fun and cute.

The sound could've been a lot better, though. And the gameplay got to be a tad bit slow and boring. But I still really enjoyed the twenty minutes I spent playing.
