    So 11 PM, huh? I'll be picking this up the second it hits the app store! Espgaluda II is definitely my most-played app, so I'm really looking forward to this!

    In the mean time, I have a new copy of Deathsmiles (although Amazon managed to crush the limited edition box during shipping... argh) to entertain me!

    Oh man, I wish I could get this, but I have an inadequate 2nd Gen. The only way I could is if I do some buttering up to my mom so she can allow me to use her iPad. xP

    Speaking of which, I'm surprised that they didn't try the universal route. A game like this would look quite amazing with an increased resolution.

    If I'm not mistaken, the arcade game itself only runs at something like 320 x 200 or something, so it would take a lot of work to make new sprites and everything for that much higher of a resolution.

    Cave's console ports generally get an upscaled-resolution mode, but they're also around 5-8 times as expensive as the iPhone versions...!

    This.

    Giving the game retina support or iPad support will involve Cave upscaling their existing arcade assets and that will look ugly as all sin.

    Also, unrelated but i've just figured out how to record perfect iPhone screen capture with a jailbroken iphone + DisplayRecorder, and audio via a line-in + audacity on laptop.

    DDPR gameplay videos coming up as soon as i've bought this. :)

    320*240.
    Yes, they should remake all the graphics.

    I'm not great at them, but I love them anyways. There's even a schmup in starcraft 2! As for remaking graphics, other than upscaling they'd have to redraw everything and that's just not reasonable unless they charged 9.99 minimum for all the work.

    That doesn't bode well. :(

    Has anyone actually got it in their respective app stores yet?

    you read my mind young padawan

    hellllls yeah,thats what i was thinking,holding off to buy this at 4.99 and thinking they'll hopefully drop the price of espgaluda for the first few days this is out and i can pick up both for around the normal price of one. after seeing this gameplay compared to espgaluda i think this one will own hardcore,esp. with that blast that fills the WHOLE SCREEN.........OMG i'm mclovin this.....

    Hmm, I don't think it did in the Canadian app store at least. I remember buying it right at the moment it was released in the evening.

    Hope it wasn't one of those cases where the app was removed at the last minute (ie Pro Zombie Soccer/Zombie Wonderland, etc).

    It happened with their last game on all systems except the iPhone, from what I remember. I remember that it was released at 4.99 and only worked on one device and by the time they fixed it, the sale was over.

    No, that was just that it wouldn't actually work on an iPod. You could still download it through iTunes or w/e, it just wouldn't actually run on an iPod at first (though I'm assuming you couldn't download it on an iPod either). The "Item being modified" message is different, I believe that message would have been something like "the item cannot be installed on your device" or something. The "item being modified" message usually comes up during a price change or app processing, or... and I hope this isn't the case... if the app was suddenly pulled, either by apple, or by cave themselves to modify it in some way.

    The fact that nobody in any of the respective territories has been able to download this yet worries me. They could be holding it so it releases everywhere at the same time, but... well, we'll see in about an hour and a half. :p
