Yes, I instantly recognized your name, and thanks so much for that list. It helped a ton while trying to farm all of the items.

Actually I'm here b/c I was hoping to add some folks on GC for the Bug Princess achievement lol. If you'd be interested, please send a PM



This really depends if you're more of a casual or a hardcore player. The best thing to do would probably be to view some decent runs on Nicovideo or Youtube if you can find them. They don't have to be superplays, but it's a lot more entertaining to watch someone who understands the scoring system. It's a little hard to find them on Youtube though, and most of the English "reviews" I've seen feature people who don't actually play shmups, which is kinda embarrassing.

Espgaluda 2
  • Asagi iPhone mode "Ordinary play", stage 1. Note the madness that starts at 40 seconds and how this guy manages to get both extends (1-ups from reaching a certain score) on the first stage. Actually holy cow, I'm going back to watching the whole run after I post this haha (edit: Stage 6 / Asagi / iPhone)
Resurrection - Unfortunately, no equivalent videos here.
(Arcade mode videos from the non-iOS versions of the game are fairly easy to find, just search for "dodonpachi daifukkatsu superplay" or "espgaluda 2 superplay" etc etc.)

Aesthetics aside (espers and blood vs. airplanes and explosions), Resurrection has a faster play style, additional hidden routes, a normal second loop, a hidden second loop, and a secret 4th ship in iPhone mode. Galuda 2 has an overall slower playing style, more player variety (four shot modes per character including Awakening mode), and magical people with wings shooting magical bullets. They're both good, but if you plan on pouring a lot of hours into one game, Resurrection probably has more replay value. Even so, it's not like you couldn't spend those same hours trying to perfect a Galuda 2 scoring run.

cool, tnx.... I actually picked up Espgaluda 2 since i used to play Dodonpachi on ps1 and had a few mame roms and i kind of have a few other shooters on my ipad that are planes and explosions...

already finished Normal on Smartphone mode using Asagi, started a Hard Run with Tateha and been doing good till stage 3 now... very enjoyable

Hi!

First, loving this game. Played most Cave games, but passed this one earlier on but now that the HD version is out (and I got myself an iPad 2, yeah, it's outdated now... lol) finally picked up the game.

Like all other Cave games, love it!

But I have a question for HD (and maybe non-HD players). There is an achievement called Dodonpachi Squadron New Recruit. It looks like it's just an achievement for completing the game with all ships in all modes. From what I can see, there are 2 modes and 3 ships. So 6 total combinations.

What I noticed after the first time completing the game, I had 14% completion of this achievement. Now after beating both Arcade and Smart Phone modes with all 3 ship types, I'm at 85% (which makes sense considering 14% for one completion). But where does that last 15% come from? It seems like the percentage for completing the game is off, or there's some hidden mode with 1 ship to complete.

Anyone get this achievement or have any ideas?

You're missing the hidden ship. Mild spoilers, but if you haven't beaten Ura 2nd loop and the secret boss (but who has?) then go to iPhone mode and press the ships in this order...

(A) - B - C - A - B - C -
B - C - A - B - C - A -
C - A - B - C - A - B

The secret ship will now be selectable.

In M mode it has a straight shot and a spread shot that adjusts direction with the tilt sensor. In S mode the shot just demolishes the screen with bullets. Its hyper shot is a tad weaker, but this seems pretty unimportant when your regular shot destroys everything on screen!

Hibachi is at the end of the second loop, although I forget if there are different second loops, i.e. a normal one or a special one with Hibachi at the end.

To get to the second loop you have to fulfill a bunch of requirements, these aren't them but for a general idea they're usually stuff like less than x number of bombs used, x deaths, hard stuff. Another way is to collect bees, as long as you get a certain amount you get to go to the second loop. Bees kind of flicker in the background, you use the head of the laser to uncover them then fly over to collect them. If you've never seen one there's an easy one right at the beginning, on the right side on the coast. Someone posted a map of all the bees in one of the older DDP threads so search for that.

To unlock Hibachi, in smartphone mode, just reach Ura loop playing on hard or normal and kill Hibachi. Easiest way is to collect ALL the 45 bees and 1 CC the first loop. After entering the second loop, you can credit feed till the end and still be able to unlock hibachi! Good luck!

iPhone 4 owner here, and having tried the Lite version, I have to say I found it absolutely fine. Granted, I had to ensure there was nothing open in the background and after closing all the open apps and rebooting the device, I found it ran fine. Sure, there was the occasional, very slight stutter but I use the word "stutter" very, very loosely.

Even on the end of stage boss (before it cuts out and asks you to buy the full game) when using bombs and the bullets are flying, it never became a slideshow.

However, at 9.99 and as an owner of the original version, I can't justify a purchase right now.
