Rule of thumb:
High settings = More detail, lower frame rates
Low settings = Less detail, higher frame rates
The first time I tried to play Devilian through Steam it wouldn't install Glyph client at all. When I found that the Glyph client installed with an initial Windows XP setting, everything went fine except Devilian wasn't on the game list. So changing back to Windows 7 allowed the Glyph client to install and play Devilian. After that everything went fine! It plays pretty well on my GeForce GTX 1060. There are a few frame drops here and there while streaming data. But I think those can be resolved by adjusting the graphics settings. Or even try using a "staging" version of Wine.
