My custom built iCade core, curtesy of fellow TA member 'Jwm2', is en route from the US to Denmark, and I can't wait to get my hands on it.

Yeah, that one is an insta buy for me!
Played the original, and the one stage Lite version of this one.
I highly recommend this game to any Shmup fan. And the original too, by the way, which also support the iCade.

I also really, really enjoyed C2Matrix first two games, Hotfield and Firehawk. Both older games, iPhone only, but still very much playable on the iPad. No iCade support, but the iCade wasn't even a April first joke way back when these games were unleashed on the AppStore.
Both are great Shumps, with very innovative gameplay, and good use of the touch screen.

I wanted one of those but Australia is too far. Very jelly. Well it should be there for the release of the two mentioned shmups. Boom

Every model of reality has margins where it begins to run out of explanatory steam, where we can see its problems and limitations

Boom, indeed.

They aren't on the list here, and neither is listed on the list on ION's web page, which is really strange.

The developer does himself a disservice not advertising that his games are compatible with the iCade, as I'm sure he'd get some customers solely on this fact.

For anyone curious, they are both Bullet Hell Shmups of the very hardcore variety.

Edit: The correct and full name of the game is Danmaku Unlimited.
Top post - and fantastic find.

Redownloading. This is a great port of the cult classic 16 bit puzzle platformer. If you have ever played and enjoyed Flashback, you'll love this game. Has beautiful rotoscoped animation and a movie-like script.

Cool--good find! Note that Danmaku looks to be iPhone-only (so it would run on iCade but not be ideal). It has Lite version to try though--and we can look forward to Danmaku 2 soon!

Storm Strikers (two words, to be precise) is Universal.

You're right, it's Storm Strikers in two words.

Danmaku is not Universal, nor is there an iPad version, but it looks quite good in 2x mode, and plays very nicely with the iCade.
Usually I hate to play games in 2x mode on my iPad, but Danmaku Unlimited and Storm Strikers aren't that bad looking.
