sure the graphics are not hd and could be better but they make best shumps for ios. i mean you still buy CM games even if they are usually just about visuals. why not buying this one because of gameplay quality. and anyway this one looks like ddp but from gameplay videos it is quite different.

Well, if you know Cave then you know their games are definitely worth $4.99 as they're not your everyday generic shmup or bullet hell shooters, they're usually rather deep and more polished with great attention to details.

I understand where you're coming from though, as Bug Princess and this one don't feel as crafted for iOS as their previous titles who even have Smartphone mode. It's probably due to the reported lack of profit and they're scaling back mobile development, which is a shame.

But then again, it shouldn't be $0.99. A properly ported Cave game is worth the exclusive price tag, eg. Espgaluda, Dodonpachi 1, Deathsmile. They're around $9, so $4.99 for this game sounds fair enough.

I always buy games I know I'd love (especially if there's a lite version and I indeed love it) at full price even if I know they'd go on sale at some point just to support the developers. Game like Dead Space, Bug Panic, Soul Calibur, ChuChu, Sonic CD, Street Fighter, etc are worth the full price so the devs know if they're making good iOS games (not crappy ones like minigame tie-ins), then people will appreciate their effort

Yea... I was not expecting this to come so quickly after it was announced. I will be picking it up as soon as I can.

P.S. lol @ the guy who spent an extra $.99 on the IAP in Deathsmiles. THEY MADE ME BUY AN UMBRELLA! I AM NEVER PURCHASING A GAME FROM THEM AGAIN! Blurka, Blurka, Blurka.

I've probably spent more time with Cave shooters -- especially with DERPSMAILZ (lol) -- than with my all other iOS games altogether, so for me it's a no-brainer. It all comes down to the time you spend with the game, not the money.

Well, just remember, to each their own, different people have different likes.
Now go back to Angry Birds.

Oh, how I loathe Angry Birds. >_> You guys don't seem to get my point. I've always been a CAVE fan, but when you're paying $12 on a game ($4.99 when it first came out...which is when I got it) it comes as a shock to find IAPs worth double the amount you spent on the actual game. I know they're not necessary, but come on...this is CAVE we're talking about. When you support them, you expect full games...whether or not that extra shit that's behind a IAP wall is crucial to the game or not.
