Dodonpachi Blissful Death is iOS gaming heaven

A shooter that makes Gears of War look like Cooking Mama

Put down those pansy FPS games. This is a REAL shooter. Dodonpachi Blissful Death is mental bullet hell in all its glory and it's coming to iOS devices to kick your arse.

Hardcore 'shmup' fans will possibly have heard of Dodonpachi Blissful Death under its original title, Dodonpachi Dai Ou Jou, which hit Japanese arcades in 2002 and PS2 in 2003.

As you can see in the trailer below - the first gameplay footage of the iOS version - it's all about sweet Bullet Hell; the concept of overwhelming players with a ridiculous number of bullets, forcing them to make quick twitch movements through the millimeters of space left open. This is what it's all about.

Cave continues to be the 'Treasure' developer for iOS, and its previous shooters, Dodonpachi Ressurection and Espagaluda, worked excellently with intuitive touch-screen ship controls.

Blissful Death is out in February. Don't be a fool. Be all over this.
