Critic Reviews

78

Destructoid

70 / 100
"Deathsmiles on PC is an odd port of a classic shooter, and even though it may not measure up to some of its Cave-bred ilk, it's still worth playing if you haven't experienced...

CGMagazine

85 / 100
"Deathsmiles on PC is arguably the definitive version of the classic bullet hell, and worth every cent. Bullet heaven."

Metro GameCentral

80 / 100
"It’s not aged as well as some of CAVE’s other games, but this is still a fun and imaginative 2D shooter that’s perfect for new players."

Easier than other Cave shmups, but super fun

The legendary Cave bullet hell awaits you in this great game that is actually easier to play and thus more accessible to beginners than other shmups from the same developer. You will still be faced with a screen full of deadly firearms and some funny opponents including a great cow. Recommended if you want to have some serious shmup fun.

Really great. It's not as good as Mushihimesama but what is? Men search for their whole lives for something that sublime and all for naught. Families are obliterated by obsession gone unfulfilled. But if you want the next best thing, here it is

It is relatively easy considering its developer, and fit PC screen (horizontal shooting). Character is cute, and variation of difficulty is wide. Overall, it is a good shoot'em up game, excluding a feeling that the character is a little too big and moving characters is a bit constrained.
