Micro-Review: Dodonpachi Maximum for Windows Phone 7
Read our Full Review!
Considering my love of shmups (shoot em ups), this game was a no brainer. Considering Windows Phone 7 has a smaller game library than both Android Market (Play Market) and Apple's App Store, I was surprised that Cave would not only bring the Dodonpachi franchise to WP7, but an original entry at that!
|Does it look hard yet.... no? Wait for it...|
This in an interesting topic for this game. The game takes place in the "Maximum Bullet Simulator", a simulator developed by EVAC Industries, the company responsible for the weaponry in the Dononpachi universe. Because you're in a simulator, the enemies are "virtual" and given an 8-bitish look and feel.
One word: PERFECT. The game uses 1 finger to play, 2 to drop a laser bomb.It works so well that I may never want to play a shmup with a joystick again.
Coming with a remixed tracklist from WASi303, the soundtrack is just awesome on your phone.
Have a listen
Sound effects in game as just as good. Voices are clear, explosions are clean, and well the fireing of your weapon is great.
|When you see this in a shmup, something big is coming!|
Cave saw fit to give us Online leaderboards as well as XBOX Live support for Achievements.
Lets see, did I mention my love of shmups? Check! My enjoyment playing the game? Check! Baddies getting laser Bombed? Check! Our Score? CHECK!
|5 out of 5 Geegamons!|
