EspGaluda II Too Fast For Regular iPhones

By Spencer . April 5, 2010 . 1:35pm

image Now we know why the iPhone version of EspGaluda II is silky smooth. It’s only compatible with the iPod Touch released in late 2009 and the iPhone 3GS, not first generation iPhones.


Cave posted the news on the EspGaluda II iPhone portal and announced a release date. EspGaluda II awakens on Apples app store on April 10. At launch, the game will be sold at a commemorative price. You can get it for $4.99/£2.99/€3.99.


The iPhone version has a brand new mode and it’s in English.

    Lame, I really hate apple, they expect you to upgrade every year. More devs will start making 3gs only then the 4gs will be released later this year. I’m still on a 2g. So dumb.

      Are you saying you expect Apple to provide a processor and other performance upgrades for your 2G iPhone? This game is 3GS only because it requires the processing power of the 3GS. They could have made they game simpler and less taxing and thus be playable on a 1G iPhone, but that might not have gone over well either.

      • Right. It’s not really Apples fault. Go complain to Cave. Ask them to support all phones.

  • Seeing the iCade ( made me think of the great possibilities of having full screen vertical shmups on iPad.

  • It’s okay guys… because even on the phones it will work on… it will be impossible to play anyways! Bullet Hell + Touch Screen Control = fail.

      There are other shooters on the iPhone that play quite well, for example Sky Force Reloaded. Maybe this one won’t, but I’m going to give it the benefit of the doubt. I figure it’s a vote for more US releases of Cave shooters at the very least. I’m also going to get Death Smiles for the 360.

      • Is Sky Force Reloaded “Bullet Hell” where PRECISE movement is required? I’ve played some cool shooters too, like Siberian Strike, but it is not a “Bullet Hell” game. It doesn’t require EXACT placement.

        • crunc

          It’s not on par with a Cave game, no. It’s probably more like Siberian Strike, though I like it more then that game. I’m hoping Cave pulls it off, but we’ll just have to find out!

      There is a gameplay video up. The tap the bullets thing looks way too easy, but it does look like it controls very precisely, so I definitely think there’s hope for this one. I can’t wait for the release!

    • crunc

      The game proves to be pretty amazing. Easily the best mobile shooter on any platform. It is a bit too easy on the beginner difficulty, so I suggest playing on normal or hard. The controls work fantastic and it is definitely a real bullet hell game.

  • Im just gonna wait until 4g iphone comes out in june/july to make sure i wont have to upgrade for awhile. so like 8-9 months from then
