'.Decluster Zero (dot decluster zero)' is a Japanese style bullet-hell shooter with abstract and pixelated neo-retro graphics. The game offers modern-classic bullet-hell gameplay and traditional Japanese beautiful bullet patterns. You'll get new bullet-hell experiences which are brought by Bullet-Canceling system.

In the game, you'll encounter tons of bullets which are insane. It is impossible to keep dodging, but you can erase the bullets easily.

A main mechanic is 'homing laser' with CANCELING enemy bullets around your ship. It requires gauge, but easy to fill.

You should use the homing laser aggressively and it is the best way to defeat enemies. Moreover, there is a mechanic which slows down bullets around your ship in order to dodge them easily.

Absolutely fantastic. Phenomenal! Amazing! Absolutely loving this game right now!

I really like the homing laser/bullet push system as well as having the full upgrade right from the get go. Switching between weapon modes is very seamless. The bullet patterns are fricken crazy and that's just on Normal lol.

Thank you dev so much. I really love your work! You've made a fan for life. Thank you for having a discounted price for the release! I suggest everyone take advantage of it.

There's not much that needs to be said about .Decluster Zero, really...it's quite apparent by now that Masayuki Ito is simply a master in bullet-hell. Cannot recommend this one enough. Stick it on your devices right next to the original .Decluster and never think about deleting them. Ever.

Wow wow wow!
What a game.

If there was ever a shooter that was worth the wait... this is the one!
All you bullet hell fans shouldn't even think twice about this one... in fact, don't think at all, just smash that buy button!

The new capture mechanic is absolutely brilliant.
It's fun, satisfying, and *feels* great!

Yes, as Echoen said above, the reduction in visual noise is much appreciated too.
It makes the business of weaving through beautiful bullet patterns even better!

I can't recommend this game enough. It is *so so so* good!
As my pet dogue would say, "Such bullet. Much shoot. Wow."

I second this post, pass it, and sign it into law.

As others have mentioned, this game rules. Supreme. Just astoundingly good in every way. Any arcade action game fan, shmup enthusiast, or bullet hell brawler should get this immediately.

Agree fully with metalcasket

Yeah count me in! Downloading this once I've posted here, have a bit of a backlog of games already but I'll be giving this a play ahead of others that are waiting. Good job I just got a new 128gb iPad mini so at least I have plenty of room for now!!

I'm still trying to figure out if I am playing the game right. .

What are some of typical scores? What's a decent score for stage 1?

Great review on the AppStore LordShad0wz.
