Dodonpachi: Maximum Is Coming This Week

In case you don’t have enough bullet-hell shooters in your life, Cave is coming to the rescue. They’ve just announced that Dodonpachi: Maximum is coming to the App Store this Friday, October 26. It will be a universal app (with iPhone 5 compatibility), and will cost $6.99 for four days before going up to $11.99 after that. Check out the screenshots below.

Like Cave’s previous shooters, Dodonpachi: Maximum will put an asinine number of bullets on the screen at once, so it requires an at least an iPhone 4 or an iPad 2. According to the developer, it won’t work on any iPod Touch models.

Cave’s shooters are known for their crazy challenge, but here they’re including an Easy mode for newbies to get accustomed to the craziness before dipping their toe in the normal mode. Interestingly, the difficulty in Normal mode will adapt to your performance. The game has five stages, and each stage’s difficulty will depend on how well you did on the previous stage.

If you’ve enjoyed previous Cave shooters as much as we have (we gave both Dodonpachi: Blissful Death and Dodonpachi: Resurrection Must Have scores), this will be one to keep an eye on.
