Default Fav/best shmups on iPhone?

Hi there,

I am currently building a simple shmup - cute em up even - for the iPhone and rather surprisingly, i haven't played that many iOS shmups (not even for research purposes)...

I want to ask if anyone here can recommend or suggest what they consider to be their favourite or best shmup on iOS? Particularly from a gameplay/controls point of view...

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

PS. the game must be compatible with iPhone 4 and iOS6...

Cave games are the best shmups. Out of the non cave shmups, Dariusburst is best.

Thanks guys!

Heard good things about Dodonpachi and Sine Mora (at least the names ring a bell!), might check them out then as well as Dariusburst...

By the way, which ONE game would you recommend that you feel has the best gameplay/controls and is a horizontal shmup (not vertical/portrait mode)?

Cheers,

Right, you've all convinced me - i'm going to check out Dariusburst!

Still all ears however for other suggestions, preferably horizontal scrollers. Any cute em ups worth playing?

Cheers,
