Dodge For Your Life In Bullet Hell Shooters

Bullet hell shooters light up the screen with enemy fire with an absolute ton of bullets to try to dodge. These games are a specialized form of shoot 'em up that amplify the action with many more bullets on screen at once. Your goal is to recognize the pattern in the enemy fire to try to weave through it, while still maintaining your own attack to try to take out enemies.
