I've placed geocached DRM-free USB copies of my newest game in various locations throughout Europe and Southeastern US. Email me if you find 'em for the free "explorer" cape.

Not sure where this came from, and never heard of it, but wow it, looks really good.

I remember this from XBLA. Bought and it's fantastic!

This must be the best game day on the app store ever.

Sweet. I tried the demo on PS3 yesterday (which was friggin intense with the visuals set to 200%) and planned on getting it this weekend.

Grabbing this version since most of my music is on the iPhone. Still might get the PS3 version too.

Impressed with how perfectly they ported Beat Hazard, it really looks the same as the pc version with all its graphical craziness intact. It's really surprising cause I assumed there would be a lot of shader code etc that would be hard to port but they did it and it runs really smoothly half of the time on my iPhone 4.

Unfortunately, the other half of the time, when things get really intense, the framerate does suffer a bit. Turning visual intensity down to 50% helps and the visuals don't suffer too much from it at all but the game still doesn't stay as smooth as it should. This type of game really requires a constantly smooth framerate to really provide that overwhelming synaesthetic experience.

The game is pretty sick so far. They weren't joking with that seizure warning either, damn lol. This is definitely the best DSS that's come out in quite a long time. So many perks to earn, and the ranking up system is pretty nice. Blasting your own music during the game is pretty sweet. This is the perfect game for leaderboard competition. My favorite release this week so far.

Unlocked insane mode, and just played a level while blasting The Motto by Drake (don't judge). Going to say it again: this game is sick.

M. Bug Panic is my favorite game by CAVE since it blends bullet-hell and DSS perfectly. About time we get another game that does the same. Can't believe this is $0.99.

This is an awesome port of the Steam title that I spent way too many nights playing.

If you've played It on the PC, it's a damn fine recreation of everything that made it awesome. DSS controls are great too.

Everyone else, you owe it to yourself to try it, especially at the current price point.
