Bullet-hell blaster DeathSmiles shoots onto App Store today
| DeathSmiles

Cave's gothic-themed bullet-hell shooter DeathSmiles has hit the New Zealand App Store, which - as regular readers will know - means that it's set to arrive on these shores around midnight.

The cult arcade hit - a critical success upon its 2009 Xbox 360 release - has a number of new features in its mobile incarnation, including a new game mode and an additional playable character.

DeathSmiles will be priced at £2.99/$4.99 for its first four days on sale. Thereafter you'll have to shell out £5.49/ $8.99 for the privilege of playing this fine shooter.

The iOS version is looking pretty lush, as you can see from the video below. We'll bring you the official Pocket Gamer verdict on DeathSmiles before the week is out.
