Dangen – a shoot ’em up game that attach importance to accuracy of shooting. With the combination of the cursor key and the shot button, you can shoot at your side or even at your back. Get the bonus point by hitting the enemy without a miss. You can choose stages of different difficulty.
The initial version of dangen was released on Thu, 14 Jul 2005. “dangen” is a Japanese word which has two meanings; one is “the source of
bullets”, the place enemy shots come from; and the other is “assertion”, to say plainly and strongly, which is considered rude in Japan.
The stage data, “spqr”, was dedicated to shinichiro.h, who is famous for his Parliamentary Bullet Dodging System. This was why the stage data was named after the ancient Roman idiom.
The game application was under active development between 2005 and 2011.
The project founder is Oohara Yuuma of Project Geeste.
