Touhou 15: Legacy of Lunatic Kingdom on PC

Touhou Kanjuden ~ Legacy of Lunatic Kingdom (東方紺珠伝 〜 Legacy of Lunatic Kingdom. lit. "Eastern Tale of the Ultramarine Orb") is a Scrolling shooter game developed and published by Team Shanghai Alice. It is currently the 15th installment to the long-running Touhou Project series. The demo was first released on May 10, 2015, with a full release on August 14, 2015, at Comiket 88.

Like the previous games in the series, Legacy of the Lunatic Kingdom followed the previous main games within the Touhou Project series, with a spell card based danmaku system. The gameplay theme is neither novel nor retro. It is a "2000's neo-retro Danmaku shooter", creating simple gameplay while removing a lot of the complicated game mechanics.

Four characters can be selected, each with their own storyline and their own shot system. Another new feature is the option to choose between Pointdevice Mode or Legacy Mode. In Pointdevice Mode, whenever the player dies, they have the option of restarting from the previous checkpoint, with almost no penalty, as many times as they like. Legacy Mode, on the other hand, plays like the rest of the games in the series, with the character given a set number of lives to clear the entire game. Pointdevice Mode makes it easier to clear the game, because a player can keep trying until they succeed, but aside from this feature, the game is much more difficult than normal. The author stated that he was inspired by games such as I Wanna Be The Guy, which feature extreme difficulty combined with the ability to freely retry each stage.

Also in the game is the chapter record feature which evaluates the overall score of the player in each stage. It works by recording how much the player grazes or took down enemies without retrying and getting shot. Percentage of the score depends on how much the player performs, which can give certain bonuses such as heart and bomb fragments.
