Deathsmiles is a side-scrolling shoot-em-up that went into arcade operation on October 19th 2007, and was later released on the Japanese Xbox 360 in March 2009.

Unlike other shooting games, Deathsmiles is designed with a left/right shooting mechanic, surrounding you with enemy units and gunfire from both sides of the screen.

The player will need to employ strategy and think about enemy positioning as your shots may be blocked by obstacles. Deathsmiles features a selectable difficulty level that allows you to choose how to proceed through the game, ensuring that newcomers are as welcome as veterans. Different stories and conversations will appear during both single player and two-player cooperative play and depends on the character(s) chosen.

Different Game Modes:

  • Arcade Mode - featuring the same gameplay and accuracy as the original arcade release
  • Xbox 360 Mode - a high resolution version of the arcade game 
  • Version 1.1 - an original mode for the Xbox 360 
  • Revamped game system 
  • Revamped scoring system 
  • New ways of obtaining items 
  • Alterations to the difficulty selection system (1 to 4) 
  • Changes to the Power Up feature 
  • Direct your pet with a modified control system

Deathsmiles: Deluxe Edition Includes:

  • An expanded version of the game with new features included on the disc
  • New playable character Sakura 
  • New stage Ice Palace 
  • More challenging scoring system 
  • New difficulty setting, level 999 
  • Play with a friend via Xbox LIVE, where the player can also measure up their success by submitting their scores to the online ranking service

Two alternate endings for each character played, leading to 10 possibilities (including Sakura from the Deathsmiles: Deluxe Edition).

The story of Deathsmiles unwinds over the course of four chapters. There are nine stages total in the game which players can choose to traverse: Port Town, Graveyard, Forest of the Lost, Bog Wastes, Lakeside, Volcano, Hades Castle, Gorge and the Ice Palace. The latter two levels are entirely optional (the Ice Palace only appears as an extra level in the Deathsmiles: Deluxe Edition). Choosing the highest setting four times in a row will trigger Death Mode, which ups the difficulty even further but allows more opportunities for earning points.

One of the best CAVE shooter

Total :


It is a Deluxe Edition for a standard price. I love the art direction of this game. It brings me back to the classic shoot 'em up titles from the 90's. In this day and age, CAVE is one of the best in this category. For this price, it was well worth adding into my collection.

This will bring death on your enemies smiles

We Europeans waited and waited, but we finally got it. One of the best modern shmup games, we Europeans also got a cheaper, but better version. Next to the main game you also get a soundtrack disk and a disk with PC desktop accessories. Game itself is amazing which every shmup fan will definitely find enjoyable. For a good price this is one of the best picks.

Good arcade fun!

Total :


This game(or rather compilations of different versions of the same game) is an enjoyable arcade romp. Recommended for those who are nostalgic about the old arcade rooms. It's simple with an uncomplicated premise, featuring some great music and outstandings visuals. This version also includes a music CD and a CD with Desktop applications to spice up your presentation. I liked it.

To be honest, I never really played any shoot 'em up game before I got this game. But, when I got this game, I was pleasantly surprised by it. The game has some sort of nice Japanese arcade style feeling. The menus are rather simple, and the graphics are not the best out there (even though they are pretty decent), but that is absolutely no requirement for this game. I might even say it makes the game better. The game is rather short, which isn't bad, since that makes unlocking achievements easier (but there are still some bad-ass achievements in there, don't worry). But, there are also a lot of different modes apart from the Xbox 360 mode. The replay value of this game is high, not only because of the achievements, but the experience changes every time you play this game. The game also comes with the soundtrack (which is really good) and even some desktop accessories. The only negative point I can think of might be the lag that appears from time to time. So, I'd say, if you're looking for a fun, colorful arcade shooter, this is definitely a game for you.

Definitely worth a look if you're a fan of arcade shooters or old school games in general. There are plenty of arranged game modes and lots of extras included in the box. Go buy!

A Modern Shmup Classic

Total :


Wow where to start?! I stumbled across this game on a Release Schedule List and the name piqued my interest. So i googled it and found this gorgeous little game! I instantly fell for it! I am a Manga/Anime lover so it really appealed to me! Release day came and i picked up a copy. Then i was floored by how amazing the game is! The whole mechanics of the gameplay is amazing. Your Familiar is an invaluable asset, especially when those Suicide Bullets start flying! Sure the game is very short, but the replay value is enormous! Many different modes to play and various endings, secret bosses etc. I can't stop playing the damn game to be completely honest! I think about it even when i'm NOT playing it! haha EVERY Xbox 360 owner should have this game. It should be the law. Why?.. Simply because this is one of the VERY BEST games to be released on the Xbox 360 thus far! Zavvi have a GREAT price for it too! SO BUY IT NOW! YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED! :D

pure shoot em up heaven

Total :


This is videogaming in it's purest form, pick up the pad and immerse yourself in bullet hell, where at the blink of an eye or a nano second instant finger delay can spell instant death(only on screen of course). I had the fortune of playing a Japanese version of this game, which is made by a company called Cave who specialise in the scrolling shooter ,a throwback to the heady days of the SNES and Megadrive maybe, but they were golden nuggets as far as i'm concerned. when this opportunity arises to play modern day darwinian succsessors to Truxton,Thunderforce,Musha aleste it is an opportunity you should grab. Depending if this sells well it could open the gates to Uk PAL releases of more of these rare diamonds from the land of the rising sun. Furthermore the imports for these games (the few region free ones available) go for 50 -60 GBP ,so to get a deluxe version for this price is an absoulote bargain,buy it you wont be dissapointed.
