NCS Product Synopsis - Update: April 23, 2009
«©NCSX» Three female warriors with a lolita-goth bent serve as the selectable protagonists and maidens of destruction in Death Smiles. Windia is a red-haired moppet which wears a petticoat and seems too staunchly gothic for her own good. The demure Follet looks like a junior maid-in-training and the last member of the DS sisterhood is a blonde named Caspar. Each gal is accompanied by a winged and invincible familiar which bolsters her firepower and offensive attacks.
   The game is a horizontal shooter that's somewhat similar to Sol Divide with rendered graphics and hordes of monsters that attack from the front and the back. To address the assault from both sides, Death Smiles uses three buttons - one button fires to the right, another button swivels the heroine to shoot to the left, and the third button throws out a bomb. The bosses are an odd and varied lot which include a mooing bovine named Mary that's photo-realistic, an animated corpse-like face that protrudes from the ground, and a ghastly tree with hollow red eyes and claw-like branches. The bullet patterns in Death Smiles are fairly challenging to maneuver through but the cross-fire never gets too unfair. A deft and skilled player can get through the entire game on a single credit by way of twitchy moves, bullet memorization skills, and maybe a little bit luck.

The Xbox 360 version of Death Smiles features online 2-player cooperative gaming and the ability to download replay data that can be viewed within the game engine which features top flight Death Smiles players maneuvering through the stages with innate shmup skill. This type of theater is also known as super-play footage.

Region Lock-out
Please note Japanese Xbox 360 games will not boot on USA or European Xbox 360 consoles due to the inherent region-lockout on Japanese X360 game discs.
