Finally got to play Deathsmiles arcade version at a local gamer gathering and was very impressed. Can't wait for the U.S. release on 360.

New footage of Duality ZF (in development), you'll want to watch this until the end:


EDIT: This is featuring 4 players controlling 8 fighters (a console shmup first) via G-MODE controls, which is the ability to control two linked fighters at once, with multidirectional firing. It's an unlockable control mode. You can also control two fighters at once via DUAL PLAY, which is controlling each fighter independently. I hope to have footage of four players doing that sometime!

Prismatic Solid came out a week or two again on xbox indie games. It has some interesting twists on the shmup formula. You can cycle among 6 weapons, which also configure these orbs that float around you and protect you/also deal damage to enemies. It's pretty trippy at times and has an interesting visual style.

They've been "working" on that for years now. Who knows if it actually exists?

I just played through Vampire Rage on Xbox Live Indie Games. It's a vampire-based vertical shmup with 2 shot types, plus a lot going on with bullet deflection. It's short, but only $1. Nice production values too.

The developer doesn't have much info on thier blog site, so I'm linking to the article we did for it (don't feel obligated to click; just sending you to the only spot that has gameplay details):

8 Bit Horse has way too much information about 2D games

yup. jus saw the trailer for that.



sold.

-EDIT-

another cool looking iphone stg:



Icarus-X. it looks cool. I'll check it out.

I played a bit of Assault Squadron... didnt like it. very average by the books, touch controls kinda janky unlike espgaluda/infinity gene...

but the worst part is your power up tokens are often the same color as enemy shots. This is very bad shmup design -_-

Vampire Rage looks good for a $1. Kind of reminds me of Shikigami and this other game where you "deflect" the shots...the name escapes me at the moment though...

I liked vampire rage quite a bit. I'm not the most talented shmup player, so I had some difficulty with it. How many levels is it? I got stuck on the third.

Wow... that looks a lot more like Progear no Arashi than I expected. I like the visual style of the game, and it's nice to see another horizontal shmup, so I'm pretty excited for this. Hopefully it won't take too long to come stateside.
