Tenta Shooter, Bullet-Hell Tentacle Game Launches On Steam
Tenta Shooter

What happens when you combine a classic bullet-hell shoot-’em-up with tentacle monsters? Why, you get Tenta Shooter, the adult-themed vertical-scrolling shooting game that sees you attempting to blast through giant monster girls with a penchant for using tentacles as weapons.

Rakugaki Games and Henteko Doujin announced that Tenta Shooter is currently available on Steam. You can pick up a digital copy of the vertical-SHMUP for only $9.99, but during the first week of being on sale you can get it for 30% the normal purchasing price for $6.99.

You take on the reole of Kei, a fairy girl who wakes up one morning to find that her sister Sei is missing. The forest becomes enveloped in a dangerous mist that brings powerful and dangerous enemies along with it. You must help guide Kei through the forest, blasting down any and everything in her path until she reaches her sister, Sei.

You can see what the gameplay is like with a preview below from YouTuber The Hidden Levels.

There are four different attack styles along with the ability to utilize counter-attacks to thwart incoming enemy fire.

After you beat the game you can also unlock a replay function for the arcade mode, along with CG images featuring H-scenes of the girls after defeating the giant monster girls.

Tenta Shooter - CG

The combination of H-scene CG images unlocked through hardcore SHMUP gameplay could be enough to lure in the gamers who enjoy mixing their fun time with their extra-fun time.

I imagine many of the H-scenes are censored to accommodate Steam’s new rules about not allowing nudity on the service. Also don’t expect any patches distributed through the forums from the devs. Valve has been enforcing their TOS after the censor groups put the pressure on them to stop hosting games that they called “porn”.

[Update:] The developer did respond to the article, noting that the Japanese and Steam version are the same and that they didn’t make any changes.

Anyway, if you want to add Tenta Shooter to your collection or check out the user reviews, you can visit the Steam store page.
