Get those reflexes ready, welcome to Bullet-Hell’s Kitchen! This week we dig into the soaring, energetic, and often manic tunes of arcade shoot’em-ups! We look at the old and new, horizontal and vertical, and the cute and insane! We also create a shooter based on Pernell, and Rob becomes an old man battling against impossible odds. Get your twitch on, it’s time for some shmups!

Rob and Pernell are here to MELT YOUR FACES OFF! But they have to act quickly before they themselves melt into a puddle of video-game-music-goo. This summer we continue celebrating the changing of seasons with music for fire levels! We’re talking all things lava pits, flame throwers, and fire type Pokemon. Also, the air conditioning broke just before recording this episode, so enjoy it while it’s HOT!
