    Just about the only flaw I have found with Deathsmiles isn't something that's the fault of the game itself, but rather it's an inherent problem due to actually controlling the game right on the touch screen.

    It's just a fantastic and well-made game, pure and simple.

    Deathsmiles is another masterpiece created by Cave: funny and full of action, with RPG elements in iPhone Mode, it could be considered as one of the definitive shot'em ups, of course alongside Espgaluda 2 and Dodonpachi Resurrection.

    Deathsmiles is Cave's most successful iOS port yet, however, and while hardened bullet hell veterans will find the difficulty level far too low for their personal liking, this is the perfect game to sit around on an iDevice for occasional high-score runs.

    One of Cave's finest moments loses surprisingly little in its move to the iPhone, with excellent controls and plenty of extras.

    Die hard CAVE fans will have no doubt already picked the game up as soon as they saw it arrive on the App Store. For anyone else interested in horizontal shooters with huge boss characters and cute, anime style Angels, Deathsmiles is Bullet Hell from heaven.

    Even if you already bought Deathsmiles for the Xbox 360, there are still reasons to grab this version as well.
