I seem to remember that Espgaluda by Cave uses this mechanic, you can use it for tricky sections and it also multiplies the score. It's actually quite interesting to play and for me at least it means I don't die as much!!
Didn't Cave's Guwange use Bullet Time.. If you held the button down that female ghost turned the Bullets blue and they moved really slow, and if the enemy died the bullets became blue.. It was still impossibly hard mind..

Once again proving itself the shmup console of choice, the Xbox 360 is getting a port of Cave developed arcade shooting game Mushihime-sama Futuari. Yes, that game.
Several Cave shoot 'em ups have already been ported over to the Xbox 360 with varying degrees of success. Take the 5pb ported DoDonPachi Dai Ou Jou Black EXTRA, which is so buggy that sales of the game had to be halted.
Good news: Cave will be porting Mushihime-sama Futari itself. The Xbox 360 version is currently 20 to 30 percent finished and will be built upon the arcade's 1.5Ver. According to Cave, the game's graphics will get an upgrade.
Cave is trying to balance the game for the Xbox 360 console, however. It will include a "Normal" mode for beginner players as well as an "Abnormal" mode for more experience, abnormal players. There are plans for downloadable content as well as online ranking and online score attack.
The release date and pricing for Mushihime-sama Futari are still forthcoming.
Great news I really can't wait to see this shooter.

Dodge that! Seriously, I'm really impressed with anyone that can play these cames well, I'd just panic with this amount of bullets!
