DEATHSMILES reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from French
With its warm colors and its Mi Kawai MI dress completely crossed out, Deathsmiles gives the impression of being a good shoot'em up to start and that's exactly the case. The ability to adjust the difficulty of each level differently allows you to learn the game little by little and its scoring system is quite interesting and demanding to satisfy hardcore fans. The black label is once again practically another game, ensuring a rather substantial content to the title. The characters are also quite different to change not bad the way of playing. The levels are varied and built intelligently and some bosses will ask for a lot of tests before being passed especially if you climb a little difficulty. I am not a fan of the horizontal shmups but I must admit that this one is a real success. In addition, this version runs perfectly, I have not encountered any crash or problem in a little ten hours. I hope now that cave will continue to deploy its catalog on PC and that the next title will be Ketsui!

This is definitely cave's best game so far. But I still wonder why there's no iPad version of it. It becomes quite pixely when it's scaled up.

What to say? On a game that I own for 3 years, and that I keep playing even now. Great Job But if you maybe improve the definition, you know on an iphone six plus it takes.

I've got this titel for the Xbox 360 and it is already awesome. Now it's even better now it is portable. This will satisfy my Cave Schmup fix for a long time. Cave, you did it again. Cave, you rule!!!! Paul.

Are a Show! I am neither a designated ball game fan nor a Follower of the Japano manga (Gothic) style, but (also) this Game by CAVE convinces me in terms of gameplay and Implementation: The opulent sprite overkill with suitable Music and nice Companion story is Another Must-Have from the dignified software forge. Did me fret a bit at first because I narrowly missed the Entry Price-but even the 6.99 Euronen is a more than justified Prize for this game highlight.

Those in the cave have taken seriously the development of games for IOS and it shows! The Danmaku is a kind of niche, but I can not think of any kind of arcade games that best succeeds on a touchscreen device. The only thing is that I wanted a native version for iPad... Now the iPad 2 has 512Mb of RAM... How much an Xbox or a PS3... And can afford to run shmup 2d in a higher resolution... And yet those in the cave don't want to... They are always very evasive when asked the question... Who knows why...

The Increase is enormous. Espgaluda then the incredible do-don-pachi and now Deathsmiles as it stands in the Book. In The 2D Area, no other Developer has been able to tease more Power out of the current Devices. However, the Game is different, if you don't know it yet, you should try the lite Version. You fly horizontally and have to shoot forward and back! But have I been raving about the crazy and beautiful Artwork? Or the great Music? -Really dreamlike! All those in the Approach on Danmaku-buy! Worth every Penny!
