Great Side Scrolling Shooter
on February 26, 2013
Deathsmiles Limited Edition comes with game, music CD and faceplate for the older Xbox 360. Deathsmiles is a old school 2-D side scrolling shooter with five characters to choose from Windia, Casper, Follett, Rosa and Sakura to explore Gilverado. Choose your own route via a map after finishing each stage. You can choose different difficulty levels from one to three. The different difficulty levels allows you to customize the bullet count and boss toughness. I was surprised to see there was a online two-player and co-op play option via Xbox LIVE. You can also save replays of your own games if you like to watch them later. You can also download the top 20 scoring runs on the leaderboards and see how you match up against the best players. There are six different versions of the game. The original arcade game,version 1.1 and xbox 360 specific version. There are two different versions of each. In the MBL version there is one extra playable character and one extra level.
All things said and done this is a must have if you are a fan of side scrolling shooter. Even if your not a big fan of these type games you will love this game. I just can't say enough good things about how fun the game is and how hard it is at some points when you crank up the difficulty level to 999. The game did make me think of the game Ikaruga but it is a up and down shooter instead of side scrolling shooter but both are a lot of fun. Bottom line is if you like side scrolling shooters or not you will be pulling your hair out when playing Deathsmiles on it's hardest level.
