Ibara is an arcade shmup by developer CAVE. You fly planes, cause massive destruction as you shoot everything in your path, and dodge bullets to stay alive. Tate mode works well on rotated displays and is a welcome feature.

The key to playing Ibara well is using bombs offensively. Sure, you can save bombs to use when you are in trouble and need to clear bullets out of your way, however it's vastly more effective to use them on specific terrain pieces to unleash hordes of scoring medals. While this may sound like a bad idea at first, scoring enough points through medals gives extra lives, which allows you to progress further.

Even with grabbing several extra lives, Ibara is still nutbusting hard. The learning curve is very steep, and surviving just to level 3 is a big accomplishment. Missing a medal cuts their value significantly (and your chance for extra lives), so it's often worth risking certain death to grab them. Still, the game mechanics are fun enough that I don't get frustrated.

The only thing I don't like about this port of Ibara is bullet visibility. Certain types, especially the rapidly flashing/spinning ones and flamethrowers, are very difficult to see. I've tested my setup with other PS2 shmups such as Espgaluda and Homura, and this is the only game that give me visibility issues.

There is an arrange mode, which changes bullet color and makes them bit more opaque and easier on the eyes. This mode also has some cool extra features, such as concentrating fire and switching powerups on the fly. It's worth checking out and mixes things up a bit.
