If you boiled down the bullet-hell genre, stripping away all of the periphery mechanics as you did so, you'd be left with something similar to Half-Inch Heist.

This is a game that's all dodge, with giant hails of rockets, bullets, lasers, and bad guys inundating you from the second you start.

While it's a twitchy test of reactions, and pretty good-looking to boot, in the end is hamstrung by its own simplicity.
