Remarkably, I’ve recently been given an iPad.
Since I lost my iPod I was, of course, more than happy to open it up.
And of course the first app I purchased was Espgaluda II HD.
It’s actually harder than the iPhone version because you now have to sweep your hand across the screen to move, whereas before it was possible to dodge gigantic swarms of bullets with relatively small movements.
Backgrounds are upscaled, but the sprites are completely redrawn. I’m somewhat indifferent about the new remixed music – honestly I have to confess I enjoyed Hyadain’s remix for Dodonpachi a bit more.
Nevertheless I’m looking forward to more Cave goodness in the near future.
