gc is Temka and i would not say leaderboards are empty, there are more than 3k users for H and 16k for overall score.

This is definitely the result!!!

Probably one of the best Taito games I've ever played.
On iPhone 4, butter smooth gameplay and animation.
Plays as a 2D scroller, but everything is in 3D all around you.
The music is stellar and power-ups carry over if you die.

A bit pricey, but if you loved Einhander or Darius, don't hesitate.
Definitely a console quality game for $10.99.

There have been some of my favorite shooters ever mentioned throughout this thread. Delta and Final are absolutely fantastic. G-Darius, if I haven't already said it enough, is just beyond words amazing. And Einhander is a game that often gets overlooked, but is excellent. We also can't forget Pulstar for the Neo-Geo, which is another underrated masterpiece. There is nothing quite so beautiful as a slow paced, finely crafted horizontal shooter.

If I could get updated versions of these titles on my 4S, I would consider cutting off my pinky toe

I don't have too much money to spend on the AppStore currently and have been DYING for Dariusburst to go on sale. There is no other title I want more.

I do have a question... The graphics obviously look amazing, but are they Retina? I'm not trying to sound stupid because I am assuming they are, but I was just curious.

I hate to be a dick and keep resurrecting this thread, but does anyone know if this game is Retina?

Thank you, Drive Thru.

It's not. But it still looks good on a 4S.

Well, why is it that some new games are coming out being Retina ready and others are not? Especially from a company like Taito, you would think it would be. I have a 4S and leaning towards games that are Retina more and more. It's just too good. But I will say these graphics look good even without it.

It's a port of a PSP game, in a niche genre. Taito kept their investment low so they could turn a profit -- that pretty much sums it up. As I said, the game doesn't suffer much for not being retina.

Thanks for the quick responses! I was thinking to myself after my last post (before you responded) that since it was a port it was not going to be retina. I am also assuming that it costs a lot of money to 'convert' a title from non-retina to retina. I'm relatively new to iPhone gaming (about a year now) and I'm learning as I go.

I think the issue is that I'm spoiled by the games that are retina ready. However, some games are retina (Reckless Racing 1) that I could have sworn was NOT retina, so I guess it comes down to more than just retina for a game to look good.

What is it with all this gimme a sale talk today? That's like the 5th post with someone saying a game either needs to drop in price or go free...

No offense... Sorry if it came off like that...

But you gotta have some respect for a company that hasn't had a sale in a while when dealing with the AppStore...

Oh, I totally respect the companies that put out a game and don't drop the price right off the bat. And I KNOW that Dariusburst is worth the asking price, even though I haven't played it yet.

I just have no extra money and want this game BADLY I was hoping maybe I could get Taito to be the great company they are and maybe slice a dollar or two off
