good things rn:

>pointdevice mode gone
>playable cirno
>>playable TANNED cirno
>>game is easier than 15 (proof: i was able to perfect the first 3 stages on easy first try, while i went game over in stage 4 in touhou 15 on easy)
>>>>>>life pieces are gone
>>>>>>>>for good
>>>>>>>>>>>>>get extra lives with points as opposed to point items (so were back to how it worked in touhou 6, essentially)

bad things:
>music is eh, alright but nothing great by zun standards
>characters seem kind of generic but i also havent read into the translation yet

In my first 2 minutes of gameplay, I keep mistaking those cherry blossom petals as projectiles that I have to dodge so I am making a lot of unnecessary movements. I'm going to have to get used to it.

so thoughts i guess pretty much the game is NOT as easy as the demo made it look like

I'd say it's probably on the level of touhou 7 MAYBE 10 in terms of difficulty but it also feels harder than 10 so probably more like 7 (either way its much easier than 11-15 (this includes 13 which wasnt easy imo)).

the extra life system finally doesnt feel like a burden anymore. and releases are pretty much useless and not worth the trouble most of the time.

i need to play more and also other character and unlock the extra stage before i can say more. sadly, new touhous all seem to be pretty generic.
