Psyvariar: Revision (PlayStation 2, Japan Imported)
The special feature of Psyvariar's gameplay is its risk/reward "Buzz" system. Each time the nose or wings of the player's ship grazes a bullet or an enemy, this counts as one "buzz" (only the very centre of the ship is vulnerable). For each buzz, a meter at the top of the screen increases by a small increment. When the meter fills up through repeated buzzing, the ship levels up and experiences a brief moment of invincibility. The player can use this short period to risk buzzing more bullets to reach the next level-up, or to avoid particularly difficult bullet patterns.
Upon completion of a stage, the player is given choice of which stage to tackle next. The more difficult (and higher-scoring) stages are only made available if the ship's level is high enough. The game can played as a traditional scrolling shooter ignoring the Buzz system completely, but this would strongly limit the choice of stages available resulting in significantly lower scores, and the true final stage of the game would not be seen.
