Cave’s Dodonpachi Blissful Death Out Now On the App Store

By , on February 10, 2012

Dodonpachi Blissful Death has hit the App Store today, the latest in a long line of Cave arcade shooters to be ported across to iOS.

Not that we're complaining, of course.

After all, Cave's previous iOS efforts include the 5/5 scoring ESPGALUDA II and Mushihimesama Bug Panic, which also earned top marks in our review.

Anyway, back to Blissful Death...

In Cave's newest manic shooter for the iPhone, you can select from six different ship types, take part in a Practice mode to hone your skills, and choose from four difficulty levels.

Those of us with merely human reflexes will want to leave those higher tiers of difficulty well alone.

Game Center and OpenFeint have also been integrated into Dodonpachi Blissful Death, so you can easily keep track of your achievements and - more importantly - online rankings.

Dodonpachi Blissful Death is out now, and currently costs $4.99.

Oh, and should you sample Blissful Death and find yourself craving more bullet-hell action, Cave has cut the price of Dodonpachi Resurrection.

This 2010 iOS game scored 4/5 in our review, and is currently available for $5.99.
