Man, I hate the purple shield guys

Those purple shield guys are really the worst enemy in the game, especially when there are other enemies in their shield radius. Those other enemies shoot at you and you just cannot hurt them back but trying to fly through the shields gets you shot at point blank range. It also doesn't help that the purples often appear as walls that block ALL attacks from reaching the right side of the screen and that you can't tell purple shields from other kinds of circles in inverted color mode.

Or you could use the Claymore to hit them, and that kills them most often than not.

Or you could just fly through their shields and shoot them - they don't seem to be damaging.

This is pretty much the best solution. As long as there are no enemies you could collide with while passing the shields you can easily pass them. Even the ingame almanach suggests that. No need to waste a vortex on that.

Sometimes, I can't seem to shoot even if I'm inside their shields, and if I try to get close enough to hit them with what little lasers I get, I can hear my shields being eaten by the collision.

This always happens if there are multiple shield ships overlapping, but even if there's one by itself it seems tough to actually shoot it.

When they show up with one of those flame shield balls, I just start ramming them to get them out of the way and hope my shields last, otherwise, the flame shield fills the screen before I can even start shooting it.
