Dotechin is a horizontal number from Japan which attempts to fill the entire screen with destructible objects instead of the usual hail of bullets present in most modern day shmups. Your robot is equipped with some decent firepower so it isn't particularly difficult to make it from one stage to the other.

Use the space key to skip cutscenes, tap the X key to shoot and press the shift key for a temporary boost. The Z key can be used to initiate a special attack, possible only when the smaller blue gauge at the top of the screen is full.

The F1 function key can be used to pause the game. Select the second option from the main menu to start playing. If you lose, a continue option will appear as the first choice although progress is not saved when you exit the program. Use the free 7-Zip software to unpack the file.

It looks promising but i don't understand a dang thing of what's going on. Can somebody give a synopsis of the controls?

it looks like the directional controls are pretty standard, the orange bar at the top is your health, and the z,x,and c, and i think also space, are fire controls. one of them is the standard, one is a special, and one is a bomb or something, i can't tell.
it's just too friggn crazy, but crazy awesome
