Best bullet hell game on App Store.
Having played danmaku 1&2, I can easily say without a doubt that these two games are the very best the iPhone App Store has to offer in this genre.
The graphics are absolutely gorgeous, the soundtrack is fitting and provides great mood/atmosphere, the controls are clean and simple but work well. It really delivers on every note the developer promises. Two things I would like to see added/put in a sequel or future games Sunny makes, are more customization (this game just scratched the surface of customization and I would love it to be expanded on, would really add a lot more replay value) and more backstory (both this game and its predecessor have really interesting lore and i would love to see it expanded upon.)
All in all, if you're a fun of this genre or want something beautiful to play, this game will do it. It's by far my favorite bullet hell game on the AppStore and anywhere else.
Very solid game, but feels a bit incomplete
Danmaku Unlimited 2 is one of the best shoot-em-up games to be found on the App Store. The game mechanics are simple but reward skillful gameplay, the enemy attack patterns are intense and challenge the player in numerous ways, and it is very pleasant to listen to and look at.
My complaints, though, would be that at 5 stages, it's shorter than many other shmups and leaves me feeling dissatisfied, and although the visuals are crisp and the music is energetic, the lack of aesthetic variety make the stages and bosses seem like they're blending into each other. It almost but not quite feels like a complete product.
That having been said, DU2 is still an excellent deal at its price point and is a great buy for anyone looking for an engaging shmup experience.
Best Bullet Hell on iOS!
Shut up about Cave. Those games are ugly as hell, have dated mechanics, and are overpriced. I do not find joy in those games. They are not the bar for bullet hell games. That title belongs to Ikaruga.
Moving onto DU2! Wow wow wow! HUUUUGE improvement over the first game! Sunny Tam went back to the drawing board, and incorporated heavily influences from the Touhou Project series! Very similar visuals, including the gorgeously colored bullets. The ultra ultra glassy smooth frame rate feels like everything just glides through the playing field. The overall look is way more dynamic and versatile than the first game. Absolutely the best looking and best playing bullet hell shooter on the iOS! Well worth the price of admission!
