New screens of Detroit Metal City: Death Shout
confirm our suspicions that the performance portions of D3's manga-based J-metal
game take their inspiration from the Ouendan
series: numbered circles appear all over the screen, and the player taps them in order to rock. But that (and, well, the makeup
) is about the limit of Detroit Metal City'
s derivative nature.
The "Cult Game" mode is a set of minigames that includes activities like trying to climb Tokyo Tower in a lightning storm, wiping bats away in hell, and spanking a guy in drag until he takes flight
-- in a race.
Spanking him with the stylus. As if that weren't enough, Detroit Metal City
features a shmup game in which you, as Johannes Krauser II's head, shoot at other heads.
