###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!

Danmaku, or bullet curtain, is a variation of the classic 2D scrolling shooter where there could be hundreds if not thousands of bullets on screen at any given time, each of them arranged in patterns that require skillful manoeuvring by the player to dodge. It is not all one sided as the player wield amazing firepower that decimates lesser enemies with ease, resulting in a dramatic, fast-paced gameplay experience.

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?

Customer Reviews

Inspired, for sure.

I'm Japanese and I have played many shmup games, and this is great, game difficulty is nicely balanced.

It's just... Well, I'll call this a "american danmaku". It's like eating Japanese food in Japan, then go to U.S. and eat Japanese food and you feel like "what is this, this isn't Japanese food!" and you still eat it because it tastes good.

Whole this isn't really a "danmaku" shmup, since 1.bullets are too big 2.ship itself is fairly big, or 3.screen is too small for whole thing to fit in and 4.screen is moving way too much. You can also tell that this isn't Japanese shmup game, by listning background music.

But did I hated? After I played for 15 minutes, I realized that if I treat this game differently from Touhou and Cave's shmup, I started to fall in love with different style of danmaku.

If you expect this to be a substitute for Dodonpachi, you'll be disappointed. It's great, but not danmaku perfection.

BTW... People who has older device, it's unfortunate, but your device has not enough power to operate the app. It's not app's fault. It's your ipod's problem. This applies to almost all of the other shmup games like Cave's game. If you ask to fix, what they can do is to make game ridiculously easy or make game less intense.

Note: I used reference of American, but I assume it was made by chinese, but I am not certain... Dear author, I hope I did not offended you.

WAY TOO MANY blending colors

The core and other colors blend in together with the back round way too much! It's fine when your slow or on easy mode, but in the midst of intensity in other difficulties, it's hard to notice a shot until you're already dead. That's why tohou and other games have a LOT more fame, they have the colors clearly different. The games a god game, but not exactly good on that one flaw.

Very bad graphics, but has potential

The graphics are very bad. The spaceship is the same colour as the enemies and the stars you get from killing the enemies are also the same colour! The game gets very confusing because of that.

Also, the font is hard to read.
