    For a company whose fans frequently call them a "god" of the genre, Cave is quickly lording over the iPhone's shooter selection.

    It feels as if it's a step beyond Espgaluda II in terms of the depth the game provides, making it the easier of the two to get into if you're new to the genre or just can't take the massive enemy reign of fire that constantly bombards you.

    A super-intense shooter with great graphics and a low cost.

    It's just so devastatingly addictive - and the fun doesn't even truly start until you've got some competitive friends on the in-game leaderboards.

    It's a gorgeous game, and one that runs at a framerate speedy enough to justify why it doesn't support older models of iPhone and iTouch.

    A sensory overload awaits in DoDonPachi Resurrection, a well-to-do arcade port with good controls and variety in spite of its intimidating style.

    Dodonpachi Resurrection is probably as good a shmup as we're going to get on iPhone, but the touch controls just can't satisfy like an arcade joystick can.

    DoDonpachi looks and sounds great.

    This hardcore shoot 'em up is absolute bullet heaven.

    Dodonpachi Resurrection is the best top-down shooter I've ever played, and being a newbie at bullet-hell shooters, I've had a ton of fun with it.

    There's a lot more to Dodonpachi too, like the absolute spot-on relative control system, the excellent brand new music for the iPhone mode, many OpenFeint achievements to unlock, multiple options and difficulty levels, hidden modes, and more. But the bottom line is that if you're a fan of shooters in any way, you'll want to pick up Dodonpachi Resurrection.

    If you have the right device, and if you don't mind the price, then you must play Dodonpachi Resurrection.

    For aracade fans and shmup fans in particular, Dodonpachi Resurrection is almost worth the investment, but for casual gamers it may be a price too high to risk trying immediately - wait for the LITE version first.

    Its high price and short play-time may put some of you off, but any serious shooter fans out there will be doing themselves a disservice by passing on this. It's a blast… quite literally!
