Anyways, I'd suggest Space Invaders Infinity Gene (4.99) and Lightning Fighter (0.99) .

If you can't play CAVE's shmups, these are the best three of the genre.

In alphabetical order:

Air attack - 3D graphics make it stand out from slow paced shumps *note: not a bullet hell

Apache Overkill - horizontal Flash game style shump.

Fast Striker - Vertical BULLET HELL that runs on 'not specified' devices (presumably all). This is probably the one you'd want. Oh and the iTune store images of the game look bad. The background are beautiful and the bosses simply look great.

Wave: against every beat - Hard to describe this one. Like Dodonpachi, but different... I would recommend this one if you have $0.99 to spare though.

I know I have no right to discredit your opinion, but I honestly thought Wave was one of the worst shmups I've ever played in my life. Well, it's actually free right now, so why not download it I guess.

rRootage. Classic Kenta Cho.

I'm really enjoying Wave, it's got a few bugs that need ironing and retina wouldn't go amiss, but it's pretty enjoyable.

Isn't Wave free at the moment? Open Feint promotion?

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Another vote for Fast Striker. Yes, you can't shoot backwards (as you can in the original), it's on landscape mode (which makes sense for the game but bothers many people), and there's no way to save progress (one phone call, back to the beginning). Even with all that, it's the closest you're going to get to an all-device Cave-style bullet hell shooter in the App Store.
