Yea the non hd one came out a long time ago before we even knew they would do a hd version. I will pick this up since its my fav of all the cave games released so far.

Yeah high res + universal, well high res for the most part. The backgrounds are just pixel doubled but everything else is high res, same way they've done it on the Xbox 360 and Espgaluda II HD. Not a huge deal since you don't really notice since it tends to be continuously panning and the screen tends to be covered with bullets. Joystiq put some screens up of it on the iPhone:

Cool, thanks a lot. Then I'll re-buy the game. I think Cave nailed this game IMO.

I dont mind paying the same 7.99 or whatever it was for DDPR regular since this HD version is limited to a certain # of iOS devices, but charging that much is hard to go for. Especially when we have Dariusburst quality visuals being universal.

Oh boy not again, they're really taking the p*** this time.

I love their games no question, but they have been inconsistent in releasing them on iOS. I'm actually wondering if the release of Bug Princess universal wasn't a "fortunate" mistake from their side... I mean we had DDBS iPhone only just after that . Gamers keep asking them to release universal apps, I don't think they get it right by releasing HD full price version when an update for those who have it already would be more adequate

I may choose to skip this if they separate the game into parts like they did with espgaluda. The whole phone mode and arcade mode separated.

DDP:R was August 2010. Assuming 512MB RAM is the requirement, the iPhone 4 would've been the only device capable of playing the HD versions at the time.

Bah, this game and chaos rings in the same week. Why must companies conspire against my wallet like so?

Agreed 100%. I won't be supporting them anymore after doing crap like this. The original game was already expensive.
