View Full Version : Cave releases iPhone shoot 'em up game

August 26th, 2010, 18:59
Cult Japanese developer Cave has published its second game on Apple’s App Store.
Dodonpachi Resurrection is the first home version of arcade hit DoDonPachi Daifukkatsu and offers Cave’s trademark ‘bullet-hell’ gameplay. It includes both the original arcade version of the game and an adapted iPhone interpretation.
The game is currently available for £2.99 though that price will rise to £5.49 after the weekend. It follows the release of Espgaluda II on iPhone earlier this year. Both games are only compatible with the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad and the latest iPod Touches.
Cave has become somewhat of an Xbox 360 devotee in its home land of Japan, releasing a number of shooters on the console including DeathSmiles, DoDonPachi Dai Ou Jou Black Label, Mushihime-sama Futari 1.5 and Espgaluda II.
None of these have been released outside Japan, though the latter two titles were region-free to allow fanatics to import them and play them on their UK machines. Cave will be releasing Gunwange on Xbox Live Arcade in Europe later this year.
