Bullet hell games tends to be a 2D affair, due to the need for fine tune control to avoid murder by lots of bullets on the screen.
I saw a fan made 3d touhou game that looked pretty interesting, but I wonder how easy would it really be to control without depth perception, and standard keypad controls.
the soon existing Oculus rift, and 3d input controller (like leap motion control). I think such game could exist in a much more playable form.
This is since you be able to tell exactly where all the bullets flying around is spatially positioned. Also you would be able to move around it in a 3d manner with a 3d controller.
Even without 3d controllers, a 3d view + WASD buttons + arrow buttons could probably be enough to control a character in a bullet hell game.
it doesn't render to a HMD, but shows a wireframe box to give user approx idea about spacial position [mofosyne, Jun 22 2013]

||I read up on Bullet Hell. But the descriptions do not do justice to the images. Must it be Hell? Could there not be such a game where the bullets were like a gentle summer rain, or falling blossoms, landing on the upturned faces of the players?
||I'm actually quite confident that there would exist, somewhere, a golden-shower themed game such as you suggest - I just don't think that's what [akibo] was describing.
||why not a 4-d bullet hell game?
