Vertical Bullethell shooting games are a big thing. You've seen tons of them at the arcades, the japanese gaming industry pumping out thousands of them, even indie developers like ZUN making ENTIRE SERIES of them. The thing is, that's because they are brutally challenging, aesthetically pleasing, and reward high risk gameplay and daredevil flying, so a lot of skill and high reactions are required. Danmaku Unlimited 2 is perhaps one of the purest examples of such a thing. It's the Bullethell shooter genre distilled into a two-flavoured package.

I say that because DU2 actually has two modes of play. Both are exactly the same game, and the upgrades and progressing you unlock (oh yes there's that too) apply to both modes, but each mode changes the core mechanics of the gameplay.

It's not immediately obvious from the outset, so here's a rundown. You have Burst mode, and Classic mode to choose from when you start a game. Classic Mode is your average Bullet-hell style shooter. You have a ship that's pretty mobile, it has a tiny little hitbox (that nice glowing core on your ship, don't let bullets touch it!), and you can shoot your guns. Your primary fire (Z, or X on a 360 pad) is your wide area rapid fire shooting, and your secondary fire (X, or A on 360 pad) is your Focus ability, which most STG fans will know is where your fire goes to a narrow path straight ahead and is concentrated, all point items on screen are sucked towards you, and movement is slowed allowing for more precision movement. This allows you to weave in and out of the beautiful bullet patterns to "Graze" your ship along bullets. Grazing increases your score multiplier and also powers up your "Trance" ability (C, or Right Bumper on 360 pad), which is the same between both modes - a quick wipe of all bullets CURRENTLY on the screen, and your power is massively increased, allowing you to destroy enemies rapidly, also causing them to drop very high value point items... for a limited time of course. Once Trance runs out, it has to recharge. In Classic mode, it automatically recharges over time.

In BURST mode on the other hand, you still keep your regular primary fire as normal, but your Focus ability is changed to a "Beam" ability. It has all the benefits of the usual Focus mode, EXCEPT that you don't fire again until AFTER you release the button, and ONLY if your Beam gauge is full, sort of like a mini Trance power! The Beam power is STUPIDLY powerful, and wipes out bullets it shoots too, so FANTASTIC for getting out of a tight spot. However you can only actually fire with it if the gauge has enough power in it, and hte more power, the longer it fires for. How do you build up the guage for the beam? You collect point items! Simple yes? Trance is exactly the same in BURST mode, except that in THIS instance you can ONLY build your Trance gauge up if you graze bullets. It does not automatically refill this time. You actively have to put yourself at risk to get it back so you can save yourself in a pinch.

Here's where Danmaku Unlimited 2 really shines. At its core it's pretty bog-standard STG format, with a few little twists (like Burst Mode for example), but it is a game entirely built around risk and reward, ESPECIALLY with the Burst Mode. The closer you are to enemies when you destroy them, the more your multiplier is built up, and the higher value pointitems they drop. The more bullets you graze, the higher your score, the quicker you get back your Trance gauge. The better you do and the further you get, the more 'XP' you get, which grants you more points to spend on upgrades to make your ship ever more powerful.

It's devilishly hard, and a lot of fun... and that's not even mentioning the ASTOUNDING soundtrack by BLANKFIELD. Give it a listen, it's pulse-pounding, adrenaline-fuelled metal and it is GLORIOUS. It's just a terrible shame it's so pricey at $9.99!.. but then you do get the soundtrack for the previous game in the series, the sadly iPhone only "Storm Strikers". Oh well!

(I think there's a Danmaku Unlimited 1 as well, but that's again iPhone only... and may actually be Storm Strikers, I don't know. I can find VERY little details on both Storm Strikers and Danmaku Unlimited 1!)

I've been played a lot of Bullet Hell games. In comparision to other shump, this is a short game. You can do a complete run in around 30 mins.

However, it is a very polish game. You can clearly see the care they took in making this game. Stage 5 is very memorable to me on the enemy placement and bullet patterns.

I highly recommend this as a short lunch break game. I also recommend this for players who wants to get into the bullet hell genre - This is a good introduction game.

This game has an exellent soundtrack and pretty attack patterns. The point system instead of types is quite nice and makes for a ship that suits your play style.

Simply put, Danmaku Unlimited 2 is the best bullet hell shooter I’ve played in a very long time. The controls are super tight, allowing for pin-point movements of your ship between waves upon waves of bullets. The hitbox of your ship is obvious and phantom hits are very very rare. Bullet curtains from mini bosses and bosses are obvious (and on some occasions very beautiful), however navigating the plethora of neon projectiles will take multiple attempts.

There aren’t any gimmicks with the gameplay, simply shoot enemies and avoid bullets. You’re super weapon charges over time or after an enemy kill. When it reaches 100% you can unleash a devastating beam of energy that temporarily removes all projectiles and deals massive damage to enemies in it’s path. You get a multiplier to your score based on how many bullets “near-miss” you, that is come within centimeters of your ship without hitting you. You also get bonus points for how close you are to an enemy when you destroy them. For those going on a high score run, it pays to live dangerously.

Bosses are another area in which this game shines. Bullet patterns the bosses force you to dive through are spectacular and very beautiful. Each boss requires a few playthroughs to understand their attack patterns through each phase. As you advance through the game the number of phases a boss increases, making a untimely bullet hit or ship loss even more costly.

The icing on the cake is the price point. $4.99 on Steam or from the developers own site is all you have to pay for this excellent game. This game is perfect for beginners (you can reduce the difficulty to beginner levels) or veterans (you can increase the difficulty to rage-inducing levels). No matter your bullet hell playing level, you will enjoy this game.

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.

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.

Danmaku Unlimited 2 is a brilliant little game, in ways that may not seem at first apparent to newbies, or non-bullet hell gamers. What it isn't is groundbreaking, or genre defining. What it is, however, is a master class training program into danmaku shoot 'em ups, and it does it so well i challenge anyone to deny they've improved their skills while playing.

You may have seen games such as Touhou Project, recent Cave titles, or general Japanese Doujin releases and thought "it looks amazing, but i would suck" - this game is for you! DU2 lets you get used to things, before making you work - something a lot of these styles of games lack. I've been playing "Danmaku" games for years and was pleasantly surprised at how configurable this title is, and how much it wants you to get better.

This game is one of the most configurable Shoot 'Em Up's on the market - it goes from easy peasy, to OMFGWTF just happened in a few clicks - catered to your needs, and all the while throwing bullet patterns at you that you will recognise in other such games. Training ;-)

Danmaku Unlimited 2 makes you a better shmupper by design, so if you are so inclined, you'd be stupid not to play it.

BTW, it has a great soundtrack too! Everytime it boots i want to kick ♥♥♥! It tells me to. And so i do.

What can I say. For fans of Bullet Hell games, SHMUPS, and classic scrolling shooters this game is top notch. The soundtrack is good, the gameplay is phenomenal, and the replay value is pretty high. Right now it's only $.99 so where can you go wrong.

To sum up the game in a haiku:

What is going on?
Bullets everywhere, can't see
Wait, it is over?

I think this is the first game i have ever bought just for its music. The gameplay is stellar too and your craft handles perfectly. The superior controls will highlight any deadzones in your controller sticks though. Wish there was more variety in the sound effects, but the music is just so good that it isnt a issue. Crank up the volume on this one.
