We've taken all the popular features from the original "casual" bullet hell DN8, the evolving power-ups, being able to select your own path, the random soundtrack and pushed them forward with the use of stage3D*.

Also new to this version are unlockable perks, along with more challenges than before.

Enjoy the destruction.

*The game defaults to 30fps to enable it to run on the widest majority of machines. If you've got a good graphics card please go to Options > Graphics and knock it up to 60.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to using stage3D ( ie GPU Acceleration ) this won't work on all machines. If it doesn't work on yours please accept our apologies in advance for your wasted time.

Hi-scores display
Perk bug fixed
If the GPU isn't compatible, software mode still allows you to play the game ( Although it won't be great ).

Medals should be fixed ( Sorry about that ).
Suicide kills no longer work on bosses ( Thanks everyone who pointed that out ).
Experimental fullscreen mode. It only allows mouse controls, and space to pause. This is more GPU heavy so in some cases performance may be reduced.

Minor tweaks.

Redrum is murder spelled backwards btw.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Really fun, found it somewhat easy even on the "harder" path though, i think i died a total of 5 times, so havent bothered with the easy path. the large bullets you "graze" by going slightly under them, bosses you can 1 hit by suiciding.
overall a good use of an hour

Yep, the whole suicide to kill the bosses was a mistake :)
I've got to fix a couple of broken medals so I'll fix that too.

Quite nice. Taking the "easier" defensive path made the game almost a snooze, but it's still fun to throw yourself into a shooter like that with god-like power. On the other hand, the "harder" offensive path was a nice challenge, though not too hard, at least with mouse controls. Controls are tight enough to really "thread the needle" between shots and get in some awesome grazes. Can't imagine trying to play with keyboard. Anyway, very fun game. Cheers!

Thanks :)
The keyboard controls were only added because quite a lot of people complained about the lack of them in the original, but yeah, it should always be played with the mouse, its much better.

As to the God-like power, I always want the player to feel like the baddest thing on the screen, you should always be able to feel like you can beat anything the game can throw at you. Sometimes its fun to grind your way through power-ups so you get a sense of reward for getting them, sometimes its fun just to kick ass really early on.

Very nice game, the graphics are awesome, like the 3D background and the staships, but the so many "bullets" are very confusing and sometimes I couldn't see even my ship. The gameplay isn't too hard [I reommend using the mouse, because you can control more easily your ship wit that] if you are uing the 5 life perk. With the colored lines before every wave make your gameplay more enjoyable so you can prepare where to start. The only thing that I don't understand is the ship's life. Sometimes I don't take damage and sometimes I got instantly killed.

Ater all it's a very nice game, I recommend for every starship shooter gamer.

I liked this a lot, if only because I'm so good at it. It's not one of those bullet hell things where it's just things being fired at you from all sides. That doesn't mean there isn't a fair amount of dodging in this game. I appreciate the graphics. You deserve your Daily Feature, if only because you made a pretty addictive game. I was afraid at first that I would die if I touched the pathways the ships come, but that didn't happen.

The enemies are designed very well. I like how there's a lot of things going on in this, but it's still fairly easy to understand. It's just good old fashioned games where you shoot everything up. The sounds are good and everything syncs up well. It's amazing how this website keeps pumping out great games.

Thank you.

And you've totally nailed what we were going for, some times it's nice to just have a game where you don't have to think too much, just dumb simple fun.
