"The colors, man, the colors"

Reviewed by / Oct 16, 2014

Space-themed shoot-em-up on Japanese psychedelic drugs

Playing DoDonPachi Resurrection is like dropping a whole lotta psychedelics atop a fat stack of steroids and then wandering through the weirder parts of Tokyo in the year 2525. Kinda.

It's an ever-shooter, meaning both that you can theoretically shoot the hell out of everything forever and also that you never stop shooting. Seriously, the iridescent laser beams and bullets fill up at least 2/3 of the screen at any given time. If that's not enough, you can activate BOMB mode to create some serious blasting power, or HYPER CANNON because too much is never enough.

Difficulty and controls and game mode (either "SLAUGHTER" or "MENACE") and such are all adjustable, so there's a bunch of ways to tweak how you play. Absolutely all of them, however, are "BULLET HEAVEN" (dev's words, not mine).

I dunno, man. It's kind of impossible to dodge the enemy attacks, because your ship takes up most of the size of the screen. It's not exactly difficult to hit your target either, given that you're spewing 235947236 bullets every nanosecond. That said, it's actually pretty tricky to get very far. I'm not sure what the right strategy is, but perhaps I just haven't been able to focus on the subtleties of maneuvering whilst my eyeballs were being assaulted by an futuristic acid-dream gone bananas.

That said, DoDonPachi Resurrection is respected as one of the best in its genre. And I did feel compelled to play it through several times, so! Your mileage may vary.

    Best shooter on Android runs great on Note 3 but won't even start on my Moto G?

    Just upgraded from an Xperia z (which had 4.3) to a new Xperia Z2 which shipped with 4.4.2 and now there is no sound in dodonpachi , or any other games ported by G-Gee like ikaruga . I don't know whether it's the Xperia or android kit Kat, but reduced rating from 5 to 3. Please fix audio in your ports. These games are the best and deserve some support.

    Always worked on my HTC One M8 and sometimes on my Optimus G and now FINALLY works on my Nexus 7 FLO. Would've given 5 stars if I didn't have the hassle of the game breaking and the completely unnecessary and ironically named GMO bloatware.

    Would be nice if I could use my controller. I love cave games. I will not support them on mobile if they keep using g gee though. The social software I have to install is trash.

    Do not hesitate to buy this game. It is by far one of the best video games I have ever played.

    Heartbreaking. Was fine right up until the KitKat upgrade on my Nexus 7. Now the app won't launch and you just get a screen saying app launch error. Tried clearing the cache and reinstalling, but no dice. Contacting the developers seems to be a waste of time as you get no response. So fix it please. Stop ignoring the customers. It cost a fiver and I can no longer play it.
