Cave game sales... Great shmups!

Cave usually does game sales during xmas, first game coming on the trackers is Deathsmiles from $11.99 to $6.99. The sale hasn't started, maybe in 3 hours or maybe tomorrow. Most of caves games should be on sale during xmas.

Get as many cave games as you can during the sale. They make the best shmups on ios.

Cave sales have started! Finally caved in and bought deathsmiles even with no hd. But sd versions run pretty well on my tv with hdmi out, so I thought why not, along with raystorm, and rayforce.

I am going out now, can someone please make a list of all the cave games for me and post here? Thanks!!!

Bug Princess 2 Black Label isn't on sale

Cave makes some of the best shmups period. Despite lack of retina graphics, lack of iPhone 5 4" screen support, and the high price tags, Cave shmups are the best value for your money compared to virtually every shmup on the App Store. They are the gold standard.

Darn, is it worth picking up black label if you already own the regular bug princess 2?

I hear black label is alot better especially for serious shmupers, but Since the graphics and music are the same, I don't know it would be worth $14 to upgrade. So far this hasn't come on sale, but wait for a sale and decide.

If one has neither, buy black label on sale sometime.

Some of the other cave titles are on sale like dodonpachi ressurection, esplagunaga 2, and dodonpachi maximum.

Good time to pick up dodonpachi maximum for $7, it is a little different from the others, but still fun.

For me its Dodonpachi Resurrection, but I really like Deathsmiles smarthpone mode with its rpg touches. They both run excellent on my 4th gen.

The latest Dodonpachi Maximun has became one of my favorites too, the action feels sharp and focused with less complexities but I think it isnt aviable on ipod.

All in all they're excellent shmups and besides DM the only other Cave game that runs somewhat iffy on my ipod is Bug Princess 2, but after a reset then its good to go.

Favorite games: LittleWing Crystal Caliburn, Legends of Yore, Hook Worlds, Phoenix HD, DoDonPachi Resurrection, Spectral Souls, Bastion, Avadon, Dariusburst SP, Aquaria, King of Dragon Pass & Starbase Orion
