Danmaku Unlimited 2 is a shooter game developed by Sunny Tam. Classic Japanese style vertical manic shooting action! Shoot, dodge and explode your way through the second entry in the critically acclaimed Danmaku Unlimited series.

Great action game. The music is energetic. The Animation is good. This game can be quite difficult to complete on higher difficulties.

TL;DR Version : Solid port,badass metal soundtrack and possibly one of the best danmaku on Steam beside Ikaruga and Crimzon Clover. Veteran danmaku won't have a problem with this,but do buy for the music.

This game is practically the oasis of a desert of poorly optimized and graphically subpar danmakus on Steam.

The gameplay doesn't differ from any other Danmakus. But since it's a genre it should not try to be different since there's little room for change. Think of FPS games.

I really liked the leveling system in the game. It's pretty fresh and it gives me a reason to go back and play it. Pardon me as I inflate my ego by stating that I beat the game on extreme on my second try. Which to be honest is a pretty troubling thing for me. Spending money on bullet hell only to play it for an hour and never touch it again because there's no reason to.
But do not use this as a basis of your judgement on the difficulty of the game. I have an unhealthily long log of Danmakus that I've beaten on the highest difficulty so I guess I can be considered a veteran.
This game isn't hard nor is it too easy. It's perfect for beginners-above average
Your arsenal contains of the usual projectiles in which you'll hold on to the button the entire time you're playing.
Then there's the bomb which will convert all incoming enemy project into point orbs.
Then there's the laser which will destroy any projectile that it can reach.

The graphics are surprisingly smooth and clean. Seeing as how I was greeted by a small window for settings when I first started the game I immediately had my expectations lowered. People who played a lot of the other Danmaku will know what window I'm talking about. *Looks at eXceed , Acceleration of Suguri etc.*
Don't get me wrong,those game are fun in their own aspect.
Also keep in mind that this is a mobile port... The very thought of playing a bullet hell on a mobile phone terrifies me.

The soundtrack really took me by surprise. The first stage music started off lightly with a few acoustic fingerstyle strums before pleasantly transitioning into heavy metal. Metal is unjustly underused in bullet hells and I really hope to hear more of it.

So buy it if you're:
new to Danmakus
familiar with Danmakus
vet of Danmakus

Rather,just buy the game if you appreciate a good game with good music.


*If you're wondering what's 'Danmaku -弾幕-', its literally barrage.

Game is worth it for the sound track alone, really good mix of prog metal / djent.

The game play is very good also, but the sound track really shines above everything else to me.

♥♥♥♥in' all my yes. Feels so damn good to dodge all of a bosses shots and leave them feeling horribly violated.

10/10 would rage at dying on a bosses last stage again.
