    Magnificent controls. [Issue#96, p.100]

    Espgaluda II is a beautiful, well-developed port for the iPhone and the best 2D vertical shooter I've ever played. It's breathed new life into a stale, complacent genre and raised the bar for other 2D scrolling shooter developers.

    It's rare to expect a game of this quality to make the transition from the Arcade to the iPhone so smoothly, but ESPGALUDA II has lost nothing from the 2005 classic.

    If you own an iPhone 3GS and are a fan of the manic shooter - go buy this game right now. If you are a general shooter fan and feel that you're up to facing the dense and constant volleys of enemy fire that this type of shooter brings - go buy this game right now.

    A classic that arrive on iPhone with a shiny vest and perfectly balanced gameplay. Probably the best shoot'em up to date on the Apple device.

    Vibrant visuals, great arcade sound, touchscreen native gameplay that's smooth and enjoyable, and even achievement and leaderboard integration via OpenFeint all combine to make this a must grab for those with a shmup-ish itch to scratch on the go.

    While not everyone can try Espgaluda 2 for themselves, if you own an iPhone 3GS and love shooters, this one's worth your attention.
