  • Character Introduction



While his movement speed is average, his shots boast quite a long range, and they ricochet off the top of the screen and bounce back to the bottom. However, his rapid fire speed is relatively slow.his bombs suck in and absorb enemy shots, and the more Bullet Hell-ish the screen becomes, the more powerful his bombs’ explosions also become.


While her movement speed is quite fast, her shot range is relatively short and she is often prevented from defeating enemies by thick waves of bullets.Her shot speed is fast, meaning she can move exploding blocks longer distances, and when used wisely she can make even far away blocks explode in a chain.Her bombs are extremely powerful and explode quickly. She can’t hold onto them for long, but they are devastating.


For this game, we were able to get the whole team from the previous title back together to complete this sequel. This latest installment is even more fun and refreshing to play than its predecessor. We hope you enjoy the wonderful characters drawn by Yomogimochi and the original music composed by watson of MusMus, as well as some good ol’ fashioned explosions.

Murasaki Tsurugi uses a shooter-style control scheme.
However, the point of the game isn’t avoiding the hails of bullets, but rather how you eradicate them.

All enemies and bullets on the screen can be destroyed.
Bullets can be destroyed with normal shots, but when eradicating large amounts at once, that’s where the red and blue blocks floating onscreen come in.
Knocking two blocks of the same color together causes a chain of explosions, allowing you to wipe out huge swaths of bullets in one fell swoop.


chain of explosions

During boss battles, destroying enemy attacks with explosions will cause a deluge of backfire to spread and further damage the boss, making these chain explosions even more critical for boss battles.


Another feature of this title is the “Collection” system. Fulfilling certain conditions will unlock various items, providing detailed descriptions of both characters and background information on the game’s storyline. As you go along filling up your Collection, you’ll get more and more information, helping to build up a more detailed and deep story inside your imagination.

Started developing the game from 2003. We don't stick with one genre but making various ones from puzzles to RPGs. More than 10 games were already released during these ~10 years. "Yusha Satsujin-jiken(JP only)", "Depressed Yusha(JP only)", "Irisu Syndrome!", "Demon King Chronicle", "Murasaki". We are aiming to create the games which are "simple and fun", and "system and scenerio united into one".
