This game! It's really fun, good soundtrack, addictive, you'd be crazy NOT to play it. The music has that F-Zero feel to it *in my opinion*, if you're a fan of that you'll be a fan of this.

If you like bullet hell shooters like DoDonPachi series,
you're going to have a good time playing this.

Backed up with gorgeous visuals & awesome heavy metal soundtrack, this game is a kick-♥♥♥.
Just add an arcade stick for the perfect experience.

My rating - 9.5/10

Note: Keep in mind that some users have trouble getting their controllers to work in the latest patch (More information in the community hub). I use R4 Arcade Stick for Xbox360 which works flawlessly with this game.

Inspired by Cave's range of shmups (DoDonPachi, Mushihimesama etc.), Danmaku Unlimited 2 helps push forward the focused sub-genre of 'bullet hell'.

Simple yet gorgeous visuals, energetic 'djent' music with fast and fluid gameplay/controls makes for a near-perfect combination.
Shump fans of all skills can enjoy this game with a set of difficulties ranging from easy (displaying minimum bullets) to those catered for the masochist.

Sublime bullet grazing, ludicrous scoring and intense battles makes one shmup fan happy.
There's no excuse buying at this price.

I have to admit, I wasn't expecting too much from this game, given the low price point and its status as a mobile port. But make no mistake, this game is absolutely the real thing. Perfectly balanced difficulty, an AMAZING soundtrack, interesting bullet patterns, and great controls. If you're a shmup fan, you definitely need this in your library.

It's like Touhou, though there are no waifus.

Oh, and, the soundtrack is great.
