TranscendPang is a freeware doujin shoot 'em up created by wosderge. The game's gameplay is mostly derived from the classic arcade game Buster Bros., also known as Pang, but with some key differences. Where Buster Bros. may be described as an action game, TranscendPang takes the basic "Pang" format and turns it into a frantic shoot 'em up experience. The soundtrack features several artists from the Japanese doujin and rhythm game scenes.

Gameplay[edit]

TranscendPang Gameplay

In TranscendPang, your character is fixed to the ground, with only the ability to move left and right, just like in Buster Bros. You also have a shot button, an OverDrive button and a Skill button. In total there are 12 playable characters, as well as 2 secret characters, where each character has unique stats for movement speed, wire speed and overdrive damage, as well as completely unique skills.
You progress through the stage by shooting incoming balls that appear at the top of the screen and bounce around on the stage, and by destroying bigger enemies that appear from time to time, called sentinels. Each stage has unique theme with its own music where all the sound effects for shot and kills add to the music that's already playing, creating a generative soundtrack. This means that your shots are synchronized to the tempo of the music that's playing. On top of this, it is only possible to have 2 wires on screen at a time, though some skills let you increase the limit.
The goal is to reach the total depth of the stage before going up against a boss encounter. Scoring in this game revolves around using bombs in order to get bonuses while trying to reach the total depth of the stage and beat the boss as quickly as possible. Shooting balls will cause them to split until they reach their smallest size, in which they are destroyed. Splitting and destroying balls, will reward you with score, which is added to your current depth.

The gameplay HUD displays this information to you, starting from the bottom left:

  • Lives: This is how many lives you have left before you get Game Over. The maximum amount of lives you can have is 9.
  • Shield (Normal Level): This displays how much left there is of your shield. It starts at 100% every stage or every time you respawn. When you get hit, your shield is reduced by 50%. If your shield is depleted to 0%, you will lose a life. However, if the shield has been depleted, it will regenerate over time until it reaches 100% again. The shield is only available if the game level is set to Normal, and replaces the Overdrive stock.
  • Overdrive (Abnormal Level): This displays how many overdrives you can use before you run out. Overdrive stock is only available if the game level is set to Abnormal, and replaces the Shield.
  • Depth/Enemy: Up until you reach the boss, this will show you the total depth you're currently at. Once you reach the boss however, the display will change to show you the boss's HP in digits.
  • Time: This displays your current time for the stage. Once you reach the total depth of the stage, the timer will be paused until the boss encounter starts. Additionally, if you reach the total depth of the stage before the norma time, then the time will start to flash in many colors to indicate that you have beaten the norma time.
  • Skill Gauge: This is your skill gauge. It'll will be green until you have filled it completely and you can activate a skill, in which case it will flash white. When you activate a skill, the gauge will deplete over time, and an alarm sound effect will sound to alert you that your skill is about to run out. If you have subskills equipped, then each skill will make the gauge color different while it depletes. When playing in normal game level, you can also spend the skill gauge to use overdrive. It is possible to refill the skill gauge while it is depleting, meaning that if you are able to refill the skill gauge before your first skill has run out, you can activate another skill on top of the first skill.

The glowing orbs that float around your character represent one of two things, depending on what the game level is set to.
On normal game level, these orbs represent your current streak of sentinels eliminated. Once you reach a streak of 6, the orbs will disappear and the streak will start over.
On abnormal game level, the orbs represent your current overdrive stock, which you can also keep track of by looking at the HUD on the bottom of the screen.

Game Level[edit]


"Are you a human?"

The first time you launch the game, you will be asked if you're a human. What you choose here will determine the game level, which can be later changed in the game options.

  • If you choose "Yes, I'm human." the game level will be set to Normal.
  • If you choose "No, I'm shooter." the game level will be set to Abnormal.

If the game level is set to Normal, you will have a shield which is reduced by 50% every time you are hit, and only lose a life once your shield is completely depleted. Additionally, you must fill your skill gauge in order to use overdrives.
If the game level is set to Abnormal, you will lose a life immediately when you get hit, but instead of a shield, you are equipped with overdrives as its own expendable resource, which is more reminiscent to arcade shooters and bomb stocks. Your skill gauge is exclusively used for skills, and using an overdrive will now deplete your overdrive stock instead.
Outside of these changes to how resources are handled, the two modes will play exactly the same, and does not increase the difficulty of the bosses or the stages.

Controls[edit]


  • Shot (Z): Fires a wire towards the top of the screen.
  • OverDrive (X): Destroys all balls on screen, and deals damage to sentinels and bosses.
  • Skill (C): Activates the character's special skill.
  • Boost (Shift/Space): Increases the rate of incoming balls.

These are the default keyboard bindings for the game.
You can freely bind the controls to your liking in the game options, and the game supports controller inputs.

Sub-skills[edit]


TranscendPang selection screen

You can equip up to two sub-skills for your character. This is done by moving to which character you want the skill of, and pressing either Left or Right. Their assignment is indicated by two different colored dots next to the characters whose skills you've equipped. Sub-skills are very useful, as they let you equip a total of 3 skills, since you also keep the skill of the character you're playing as.

In order to active a skill, you need to build up your skill gauge and hold either Up or Down while activating the skill.

  • The skill you selected with Left gets assigned to DOWN + Skill (pink dot)
  • The skill you selected with Right gets assigned to UP + Skill (green dot)

If you're able to rebuild the skill gauge before the skill runs out, then you can activate another skill in the middle of the first skill, making it possible to combine two skills. The only catch is that sub-skills deplete the skill gauge much quicker than your primary skill, so be careful when activating it.

Bombs[edit]


Bombs in this game refers to the glowing balls that explode after 4 beats. Throughout the stage, bombs will spawn in naturally from the top of the screen, but they appear in a different color than the regular balls.

Regular Bombs[edit]

Regular bombs are usually red or orange, and once ignited they will glow white. You can also tell if they're about to explode by listening to their audio cue, which is typically a short musical phrase that lasts for 4 beats. If you shoot a bomb while it is glowing white, you will delay its explosion until the next cycle.
If a bomb's explosion hits balls the same size or smaller than itself, it will destroy those balls immediately. However, any balls that are one size large will be turned into bombs themselves when hit by the explosion.
If a bomb comes in contact with a sentinel or a ruler (boss), it will explode immediately, while also dealing a lot of damage. However, the player can not be hurt by a bombs explosion, but they can be hurt if a bomb bounces into the player.
It is also possible to create bombs yourself. If you are able to split the same ball three times before it hits the ground after spawning, it will turn into a bomb. This means that in order to create bombs, the ball needs to be at least size 4 or 5. If a ball has already touched the ground once after spawning, you'll have to split it 4 times before it'll become a bomb.

Black Bombs[edit]

Black bombs however can hurt the player with their explosion. These will appear purple/pink, or green if color support is turned on.
While they behave like normal bombs, they will also turn smaller balls into black bombs. You can turn them into regular bombs by shooting them while they're not ignited. That means that if a black bomb is ignited and about to explode, you'll have to hit it once to deactivate it, and then once again in order to turn it into a regular bomb.
Black bombs will not damage sentinels or bosses.

Depth[edit]


Depth is the metric of progression and score in the game. By hitting balls and destroying sentinels, you get points which are added to the depth.
Each stage has a pre-defined total depth, which is presented to you at the start of the stage. Once you have reached that depth, you will have reached the end of the stage and the stage's boss will appear. Additionally, each floor of the stage has its own target depth which is required to reach in order to progress to the next floor. However, due to how the floor change only happens at the start of each musical phrase, it is possible to exceed the target depth of each floor. It is not possible to exceed the total depth of the entire stage.

Norma Time[edit]


Each stage has a norma time, which is presented to you at the start of every stage. If you are able to reach the total depth of the stage within the norma time, you will face the NEO version of the boss, instead of the regular version. The exception is the final stage, which does not have a NEO version of the boss, and the norma time is infinite (but displayed as 59:99.)
If you have reached total depth within the norma time, the game will indicate this by making the timer flash in several colors, rather than staying pure white.

Bonuses[edit]


While playing the game, you can be rewarded by two main types of bonuses, one for eliminating sentinels or bosses, and one based on the size of bombs.

Sentinels Eliminated[edit]

This reward is only available when the game level is set to Normal.
For every 6 sentinels eliminated, you will be rewarded with an extend. This includes sentinels eliminated across two different stages. For example, if you eliminated 4 in one stage, you will get the reward once you eliminate 2 sentinels in the next stage.
If you currently have 9 lives, then you can not get another extend, which will cause the orbs around you character to continue piling up beyond 5.

Assault Bonus[edit]

This reward is only available when the game level is set to Abnormal.
There are certain spots in the game where two or three sentinels will appear at the same time. If you are able to defeat them without taking any damage or using any overdrives, you will receive a reward.

Condition Reward
Single Assault Bonus No reward
Double Assault Bonus +1 OverDrive
Triple Assault Bonus Extend

Boss Eliminated[edit]

For every boss defeated, you are rewarded with an extend.

Sublimation Bonus[edit]

A sublimation bonus is rewarded to you based on the size of the largest bomb exploded during a chain. The bonus will be rewarded once the last bomb in a chain has exploded.
Keep in mind that hostile (purple) bombs do not reward any bonuses. You need to turn them into regular bombs in order to get a reward from them.

Tier Reward
1st Sublimation Bonus No reward
2nd Sublimation Bonus Score bonus (Needs research for calculation)
3rd Sublimation Bonus Full skill gauge
4th Sublimation Bonus Shield +50% (Normal Mode) or +1 OverDrive (Abnormal Mode)
5th Sublimation Bonus Extend
6th Sublimation Bonus All Plus: Full skill gauge, shield/overdrive increase and one extend.

It is only possible to get the 6th sublimation bonus in the final stage of the game. For stages 1 through 6, the highest tier you can get is the 5th sublimation bonus.

Modes[edit]

The game has 5 modes you can choose between.

Wandering Mode[edit]


This is the main mode of the game. In this mode you have to play through 7 stages out of a possible 19, arranged in a branching tree, similar to the Darius series.
The tree has a depth of 3 branches, except the final stage which has 4 potential stages. You can only move between adjacent branches, i.e. from A to B, or from C to B, but not from A to C.
Your performance in each stage is what determines what the next stage will be.

Movement Condition
A to A Defeat normal boss.
A to B Defeat NEO boss.
B to A Defeat normal boss.
B to B Defeat NEO boss.
B to C Defeat NEO boss and leave the stage with
2 more lives than what you entered with.
C to B Defeat normal boss.
C to C Defeat NEO boss.

The exception to this rule is stage 2-B, which lets you move up to 3-C without getting the two extends which are normally required.
Additionally, the Final stage has slightly different criteria, due to adding a new branch.

Stage Condition
Final-A Clear 6-A without beating the norma time.
Final-B Clear 6-A NEO, or clear 6-B without beating the norma time.
Final-C Clear 6-B NEO, or clear 6-C without beating the norma time.
Final-X Clear 6-C NEO.

Advanced Mode[edit]


This mode lets you play a through one of 3 courses, each consisting of 6 predetermined stages.
At the end of each stage, you will always face the NEO version of the boss, and you may not use any continues. If you get Game Over, you have to restart from the beginning.
Some courses must be unlocked before you can play them.

Course Stage 1 Stage 2 Stage 3 Stage 4 Stage 5 Stage 6
Normal Sphagnum Squarossum (1-A) Love Entropy (3-A) calm,waste. (4-A) growing train (5-A) drug festival (6-A) leftscene (Final-A)

Transcend Rotten Soil (2-B) gazer (3-C) Endoplasmic Reticulum (4-C) HASCORALGUN (5-C) the age of shadow (6-C) last mother (Final-C)

Invasion Mode[edit]


This mode lets you play any stage freely, as long as you have played it at least once before in Wandering Mode.
Once you select your stage of choice, you may choose between the following options:

  • Challenge: Attempt your best time for the stage. You will always face the NEO boss in this mode.
  • Practice: Play through the stage with infinite lives. Your best time here will not be saved.
  • Boss Attack: Go straight to the boss of the stage.
  • Boss Attack (NEO): Go straight to the NEO version of the boss of the stage.

Challenge is only available if you have beaten the NEO version of the boss of that stage in Wandering Mode. The same goes for Boss Attack (NEO).

Genesis Mode[edit]


This mode lets you play any custom stage the game is able to find inside the "user" folder in the game data folder.

Boss Rush[edit]


Boss Rush

This mode is its own self contained stage which lets you play against every boss in the game in sequence. If you die you may not use a continue.
You still get an extend for every boss you eliminate in this mode, but you must face the NEO version of every boss.
Outside the fact that you encounter Nortrem C.R.I. (from 1-A) first, the order in which you encounter each boss is random every time you play this mode.

ends its movement pattern by shooting a double helix laser into the ground.
N/A
Astigmatism The boss splits itself into three clones. Initially they revolve around
the center of the screen, shooting stars in a fan shape towards the ground.
This is followed by them shooting dense and rapid lines of stars towards the ground,
before one of the clones prepares for a larger attack.
The clone which has charged up will fire a huge and sporadic burst of stars.
Sometimes, one of the other clones will shoot a spiral of stars while
it is charging up the attack. It is possible to prevent the final burst of stars by
hitting the boss with a bomb.
Once the cycle restarts however, all bombs and balls on screen will be removed.
N/A
Vertigo The boss moves to random positions on the screen and fires large and dense spirals of stars.
The stars fired last will have a higher velocity than the first stars fired.
