Best SHMUP games?

I have the Xbox One and an ipad, and recently played the Skyforce 2014 on the ipad and was impressed. So now I am looking for more SHUMP (bullet hell) games for xbox one, or apps. I think Dogos for xbox one looks pretty good. I know CAVE makes some good one, but can be pretty expensive.
Anyone have a good list of the best shumps to try?

Ikaruga is my favorite as well, though I know it's not everybody's cup of tea (nor the end all for shooters).

Re: Best SHMUP games?

For the Xbox One, Raiden V is really good and has been on sale a couple of times. Keep an eye out for the next one if you don't pick it up now.



On the PS4, the one I love is Dariusburst Chronicle Saviours. It's really expensive at MSRP ($59.99 I think), but has been on sale a couple of times. I don't think it's on Xbox One yet, but it may come there. It is on PS4, PS Vita and PC. You can set up 3 monitors and play it super-wide.

We haven't seen a lot (any?) of the 360 SHMUP's go backwards compatible, have we?

Checking out Ikaruga. I see itís a backward compatibility 360 game. Interesting. Seems to be highly rated too. Looks good. Another one I saw is Blue Rider. Looks decent. Definitely not a huge list for xbox one. Wish they had CAVE titles. Rather pay $10 for those on the xbox one over ipad apps.

Sale alert : Caladrius Blaze (PS4) is currently on sale for $7.49 (75% off) for PS Plus members.

This is the same game as Caladrius on the 360 with extra Mission stages and a few other add-ons.

Re: Best SHMUP games?

Raiden V is apparently coming to the PS4 with a physical release and some other extra goodies.

Raiden V, originally released for Xbox One on May 2016, is coming to PlayStation 4 as Raiden V: Director’s Cut via UFO Interactive, an Amazon listing has revealed.

The PlayStation 4 version of the game is listed for an August 22 release, although it is possible this is a placeholder release date. Unlike the Xbox One version, which was a digital-only release in the west, the PlayStation 4 version will have a physical release including the game’s original soundtrack CD, at least in North America.

Raiden V has a new ship damage system that uses the health bar instead of lives; three distinct ships with different Defense, Mobility, and sub-weapons; a new “Cheer Attack” that boosts sub-weapons for a short time; and support for up to two players offline.

Definitely not a huge list for xbox one. Wish they had CAVE titles.
Guwange is a classic Cave title available through BC. I believe you just missed a sale price last week, but it should still be under $10.

There are several other Cave titles on 360 and two other Raidens. They are still chipping away at the BC effort and this week finally gave me my Shinobi, so have faith..
