Cave classics

This game does more than give bullet hell invasion but gets you to appreciate all the art and details that are meant to go into a game. From the characters to the bosses they all look amazing. Although I am curious as to why no BP title received an HD upgrade like the others even black label. This game defiantly deserves it. Simply gorgeous and fun.

Falls well short

A great top down shooter should ride you mentally on the razors edge between wanting to throw yourself out of the window and keep you going back for more. This is not that game.

I thought the credits screen must have been the ending of the first stage, not the game. It took me less than an hour to beat.

Just Wow

I was skeptical at first about at shooter on iphone.. But let me say! I'm hooked! I own Ikagura, Giga Wings, and Mars Matrix and the Bug Princess series is superb! Would love a release for Dreamcast or pc/mac.
