###Danmaku Unlimited###

The wait is over! Inspired by the best of 2D shooter games such as the Touhou series and other doujin games from Japan, Danmaku Unlimited is an authentic bullet hell shooter experience on a level that is rarely available on mobile devices!

Set in the not so distant future, Danmaku Unlimited places you in a world that is gripped by destruction, caused by the will of nature to cleanse the earth of mankind that for long has been abusing her gifts. The manifestation of her wrath comes in the form of six goddesses, or Valkyrias. As beautiful as they are deadly, they wield the power to transform and re-purpose man's creation to their cause.

As humanity crumple against nature's righteous onslaught, will you, the only Valkyria that still sees hope in mankind, fight to give humans a second chance? Or will humanity receive the judgement it so deserves?

Ooooh, a bullet-hell shooter. Can't way to try it out and die a thousand times...

Anyways, it definitely has a different visual style than the classic BHS, doesn't it?

This game is fantastic. Too bad the lite is so short. I hope the full version comes out sooner than later. My only complaint after one playthrough is that some of the enemies, pickups and on-screen messages seem to blend into the background too much, but at least the bullets stand out.

About to try this out but I'm doubting that it'll hold up against CAVE's shooters.
