Maybe it should "Queen of Shmups" because we all know Phoenix HD is the real king

This definitely looks good though

Wondering about the freemium structure. Hopefully, a full-game unlock or a system like Phoenix HD where other ships are the IAPs.

Or maybe the Jack of Shmups coz Danmaku Unlimited 2 says hi.

I agree this looks good. And i hope the IAPs are favorable too.

Yep freemium scares me but you never know it might be okay. But the main thing for me are the controls, i 'presume' its relative touch which is essential for these types of games

I adore Phoenix and Danmaku, but i wish to say someday "The king is dead, long live the king". I doubt it here, online with Skillz and 'before times runs out' sounds...don't wanna pre-judge, we'll see soon.

Edit: downloaded two lite versions of them, both shmups, the controls are quite good and plus one year of experience since then...very curious about this one.

Eh. So much for calling itself King. Stick to Phoenix HD, DoDonPachi, Danmaku, or whatever else you have. Relative touch. The autofire is kinda weird in that it has a cooldown after a couple of shots. Your starting gun is a single shot accompanied by homing missiles. Upgrades turn it into a spread. To upgrade your weapon, either build up and keep a combo by killing every enemy in a wave or get power ups that upgrade it by 1 level. Lose your combo and your shots downgrade to level 1. One stage takes around 3 minutes to finish. The overall experience just wasn't fresh or exciting though.

No Game Center so you're stuck with Skillz. No leaderboard but you've got stats.

I encountered a bug where I could no longer control my ship even after losing a life. Pausing did nothing. Game over resolved it.

For science, PS3 controller doesn't work. Video later but you can try it for free anyway.

CAVE saunters in and laughs at your puny shmups... and then promptly forgets that it can speak English.

Anyways, gotta love me some shmups. I'll certainly be trying this one out tonight.

Damn, excitement denied. That video makes it look pretty pedestrian.
