Cave have announced that their anarchic arcade hit Deathsmiles will be catapulting onto the App Store this Spring for iPhone and iPod touch.The trailer (embedded above) should give you a taste of what the riotous and unrepentantly challenging SHMUP has to offer. Touch controls and convenient onscreen icons will replace traditional controllers or arcade joysticks, though we hope that players won't need to obscure too much of the screen with their thumbs. Considering the sheer amount of incoming firepower that Deathsmiles gleefully churns out, you'll need every single square millimetre of screen to survive.
Cave have confirmed that it will be a port of the "Deluxe" Xbox 360 version, which I labelled as "the definitive edition of an arcade classic and arguably the finest side-scrolling shooter on the Xbox 360" in my recent 8/10 review. Why not check it out and see what you'll be in for?
