Project 1996 is a short and unfinished bullet-hell game where you have to shoot or hit a ball to kill enemies. The gameplay is highly based on Touhou 1's gameplay. The game is coded in Java with LWJGL 3. Everything in this game is currently developed by only one person.

As the game is now it only contains a few rounds of enemies, and a bossfight. There are currently no animations or story.

Great game, although has a small bug where I'd have to exit out the game in order to press retry, it wouldn't click.

What key on your keyboard did you try to press when you were trying to press Retry? Right now, how the menu works is that Z = Confirm and X = Cancel. Thank you for trying out the game :D


awsome game
