I could never understand these type of games. How do they expect you to dodge all those balls?

I too am curious about the framerate on the iPhone 4. Expecting it to be terrible because the non-HD version of the game already runs at a not so steady framerate on the device.

In theory, only you should only worry about the bullets that will travel to you. The rest of the bullets are there for distraction and to make you panic. Of course, its easier said than done. ;-P

These games are for people who enjoy deaths... Lol..

By moving very fast! Now honestly, the bullets only hit you if they hit the mini circle in the middle of your ship. Of course, it's difficult not to get hit, but not impossible. The controls help a lot with this too. Cave games have great relative touch controls.

Also keep in mind that the bullets come at you in specific patterns; part of the fun of bullet hells is to figure out the patterns and find the "safe passages" through them.

But, yeah, you die a lot, too .

You would have to drop an Atom Bomb directly on my house to keep me from getting DoDonPachi: Resurrection HD.

The game says 4s and iPad 2 (and presumably the new one), so I'd presume that it would play poorly on an iPhone 4.

Here's 2 image comparisons between original and HD. Both taken from my ipad.

This looks INCREDIBLE on My 4S, holy crap!! The controls are a little wonky as multi touches stop the ship in its tracks. Haven't played a lot, JUST downloaded it. Loving it though! Totally worth it. Now for espgaluda ii hd to work on the 4S...
