Ratings and Reviews
I am addicted to this game
This game is bad for your health! Once you get a taste for how it's actually supposed to be played (i.e. pay attention to the scoring mechanics), you'll be hooked! Those people talking about how short it is have completely missed the point. Are you able to get through the game on one credit? On one life? Without using your bombs? It's these milestones plus the aforementioned point scoring that give it its longevity! That and the fact there are two separate modes of play (arcade and smartphone)! This is the most intense gaming experience I've had in a very long time and one of the finest examples of the iPhone handling classic arcade style action with precision pitch-perfect controls. 10/10.
My only nitpick: would like to be able to play my own music in background please, Cave! Maybe something to consider for a future update?
App not supported in iOS 11
All of these great Cave games, which were never the cheapest App Store games, are no longer playable!
Cave hasn’t updated them for iOS 11.
Another class act from Cave. I don't remember DoDonpachi being this good on my Saturn!
Beautiful scoring mechanic that balances risk and reward, clever use of the touch screen for iPhone mode, awesome music that captures the Japanese Shoot 'Em Up flavour to perfection. The graphics are intense and the controls are, once again, a total masterclass.
Presentation is top notch and I know for sure I'll be coming back to this over and over. In fact I'm almost tempted to say that this is slightly better than Espgaluda in some ways - maybe it's the purity of the scoring in Arcade mode... I don't know. Whatever, it's a bargain at £2.99 and I planned on happily giving them £5.49 of my money so I'm dead pleased.
Anyone who comes into this game must realise that it's not about the amount of levels but about getting high scores using the multiplier. And if I hear any complaints about it being 'over-specced' (as Espgaluda was accused of) I'll be responding to let people know what I think. Seriously, how can a game as arcade perfect as this be over-specced? It's a ludicrous comment.
Anyway, this is pure gold once again. I just hope Cave's next project comes out soon as I just can't wait! And as someone else pointed out, it'd be great to see Treasure releasing some games as well. Maybe they could team up together :)
