DonPachi DonPachi (???, DonPachi?) is a vertically scrolling manic shooter arcade game developed by Cave and published by Atlus in 1995. It was the first game developed by Cave, and the second on Cave's first generation arcade hardware (the first being Power Instinct 2, an Atlus-developed game). Literally translated, the title means "leader bee", but it is also a Japanese onomatopoeic expression associated with the sound of firing guns. It is one of the first manic shooters. This game received a sequel in the form of DoDonPachi. [source:wikipedia]
