Crashes, game needs work.
I can't even beat the game because it'll crash after a couple stages. The graphic options barely change anything so it doesn't affect the crashing. The game itself is okay. The soundtrack needs work, especially since the tracks doesn't even loop properly. The game itself is pretty look at but it gets too much. So much on the screen happening at once makes it more difficult than it should be to dodge the bullets. The colors play a major role in this problem since everything just stands out, instead of having more contrast between the bullets and the everything else. I appreciate the nice graphics and all, but don't let it become a hindrance. What I do like though is the variety of ships and the ease of getting tokens without having to rely solely on IAP. The bullets move a little fast for my tastes but the patterns work well. Considering the price, I think the game is still worth a buy however, especially with Cave or Taito's shmups being a bit expensive for some users.
Sunny Tam does it again. This game is fantastic - like all their games. In fact, this game blows away Dodonpachi Maximum by a long shot. Storm Strikers is a better quality game than Dodonpachi and is much more fun to play. For what? $10 less!! And this is coming from an experienced bullet hell shooter. Now Cave did produce a good one in Espgaluda. But if you're considering a Dodonpachi, don't believe the hype. Save $10, and have a better experience.
Very Difficult Bullet Hell
I agree with the previous review. The game is harder than it needs to be because of how much is going on graphically. The easy mode is too hard, but then again who wants their shmups to be too easy. The damage indicator would be nice.
I like Danmaku Unlimited 2 better. The controls are inevative and the different levels of difficulty have defined differences.
