Deathsmiles iPhone, iPod touch announced

Out in the spring.

Cave's brain-melting horizontal shmup Deathsmiles will launch on iPhone and iPod touch in the spring.

The Japanese game maker refers to the iPhone/iPod touch version of Deathsmiles as a port of the Xbox 360 version rather than of the arcade version, reports Andriasang.

The Xbox 360 version launched as a budget game in the UK last Friday. Simon Parkin entered the zone for Eurogamer and emerged with an 8/10.

"This is a superb horizontal shoot 'em up delivered in a sterling package," he gushed. "It has all of the score-attack appeal of Bulletstorm in a far more dense and concentrated form."

A trailer for the iPhone version is below.
