    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.

    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.

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

    Deathsmiles mixes up the formula to drag in bullet-hell fans and lowers the barrier to entry to encourage newbies. Everyone with a passing interest should try out this smart, compulsive and thrilling blaster.

    A thrilling ride from beginning to end. Its crazy japanese visual style combined with a mash up of rock and techno music (including a cameo from tubular bells) is a joy to behold. Combine that with intense shooter action, item upgrades, a bizarre storyline, and multiple endings, and you have one of the best shooters on the AppStore.
