Thy Sword

So I got sent a copy of this demo (which is also publically available). I actually greatly enjoyed my time with this. It scratches a lot of nostalgia itches and the controls are pretty spot on.

Gameplay video.

I just wanted to say that I agree with your comment in the video about the 360's dpad being terrible.

I've been forced to do all of my bullet-hell shmups, most of which were found only on there because the universe hates me, with that godawful contraption.

I discovered many times that it's possible to hit UP on the pad and have it think you're hitting DOWN. 

Whoever designed that thing needs to be fired from whatever job they now hold, and instead be forced to work at McDonalds.  In a back room somewhere, where they cant screw up anything obvious.

The 360 d-pad is a crime against humanity, I'm sure.
