Description

Maiden & Spell is a BULLET HELL based, 1v1 BATTLE GAME.  Heavily inspired by Japanese shmups and Doujin games, it features an all-girl cast of colorful characters fighting each other with bullet hell patterns.  In addition to local 1v1 matches, it features a fully realized Story Mode with unique boss fights to defeat.

Unlike other 1v1 fighters that have some bullet hell elements, Maiden & Spell seeks to capture the true spirit of bullet hell in its combat.  There are no melee attacks; everything is magical bullets.  There is no blocking or parrying, instead there are "bombs" on cooldown and hitboxes that are only about 6 pixels wide.  Your victory relies on successfully dodging the opponent's danmaku patterns... all while throwing out your own!

Story

In search of a mysterious jewel, a group of adventurers plunge the depths of what is rumored to be the most dangerous dungeon in the world: a vast abyss known as The Great Circle.  To their surprise, they find the dungeon mostly devoid of monsters, and housing the ruins of a civilization long forgotten by the world.

As they delve deeper into this mysterious underground world, they begin to uncover the secrets surrounding the vermilion gem they seek, the monsters of The Great Circle, and the lost city once known as the Kingdom of Stars...
