Sneak Peek at this week's Xbox LIVE game for Windows Phone: DODONPACHI MAXIMUM [Video]

With about 18 hours before this week's Xbox LIVE game goes live for y'all to download, we figured we would tease you a little bit with some gameplay from DODONPACHI MAXIMUM.  Yes, it's in all caps because this game is yelling at you...with bullets.

What can we say about this game?

  • It's $4.99
  • It's Japanese, from studio Cave
  • It's ridiculously crazy, fun and challenging
  • May induce seizures

Yeah, we like it even if it's going to take time to get good at. This is the kind of game where you can just pick up, blast away and pray you last longer than the last time you did. We're digging the graphics and all the little details throughout, meaning you should get a little excited about this is if shumps are your thing. (And yes, I'm still suffering from a head cold from Barcelona, hence why I sound sick, ahem).

Look for the Marketplace link later tonight right here at WPCentral to try it yourself...

I can't wait for this. Ever since dodonpachi was released for the first playstation, I have been a huge fan. I haven't seen it in a while since i was young, but now it's time to go back to my roots :)

Going to stick with OMG, I think.
