Okay, this will have some of you guys scratching your head, but... I really don't like bullet hell shmups, but I have become dangerously addicted to Phoenix HD and am looking for the 'next thing'. Any suggestions? Would Darius Burst be something similar?

Just found a shmup called "The Strain" which is really really cool. I definitely recommend giving it a shot

A "shoot em up"

Usually they scroll vertically and you have to dodge enemy bullets whilst shooting the enemies. Auto-fire is generally utilized. They can scroll horizontally as well.

Galaga, Pheonix HD, and R-Type are all shmups

If i could only name one, it would have to be Phoenix HD. Each ship is basically a new game. Only downside to Phoenix HD is that it is more an endless high-score chaser than a story-driven shmup like the usual Psikyo or Cave titles and the likes... Which isnt really a downside since the design was to make it as it is.

Yes, hands down the best shmup I've ever played

The best new one, Glorkian Warrior: Trials of Glork is my favorite shmup at the moment. And propably for a long time. Premium app, tons of fun, great proven gameplay with a 2014 feel, hilarious, amazing art, it has it all <3

The developer said that on the iPhone 4 does not run very well, its laggy because it is too action heavy for that to handle smoothly. Also. doesnt work on iPod Touch 4 or iPad 1.

That sucks... I hope they optimize it. In the beta the lag was not that bad. Oh well, back to IB3.
