The developers at int13.net introduced Shogun Rise of the Renegades to the Android Market today, bringing "bullet hell" gameplay reminiscent of Japanese arcade games from the 1990s to the palm of your hand.

For those not in the know, the Japanese sometimes call "bullet hell" style games "danmaku," referring to insane shooters in which players can generally expect most of the screen to be filled with flying bullets.

Shogun definitely delivers on this reputation, providing a continuous stream of chaotic scrolling shooter action. One of Shogun's claims to fame is its dynamic, addictive gameplay - it's easy to get hooked on the manic action and crisp, retro environments offered by Rise of the Renegades, and  the game keeps things interesting with hours of entertainment.

While the full version of Shogun will run you about $2.49 in the Android Market, int13.net suggests trying the free demo version first to avoid compatibility issues. Just click through either of the links below to grab the download and start blasting through enemy spacecraft.

    me no likey this kinda game. must be specially bad with touch controls since it needs to much precision and it'll be hard to get that with your thumb covering half of the screen.
