Steven Redmond and Kevin Derken at n0rtygames have released a new gameplay trailer for Chronoblast, a slick-looking bullet-hell shoot-'em-up coming soon for the Xbox Live Indie Games service.

Inspired by Cave's DoDonPachi series, Chronoblast is a vertically scrolling shooter that promises to offer "a fun challenge to veterans of the genre as well as people just discovering the modern shmup." The game will feature five levels (each of which is helmed by a difficult, bullet-spewing boss), and according to this video, it'll support a wide variety of vertically- and horizontally-oriented screen setups.

A release date for Chronoblast has not been announced.
