Conclusion: The basic premise of Bangai-O will remain the same for its DS iteration, with players controlling a tiny robot through massive, free-roaming levels jam-packed full of sprite-based graphics (wow, that’s a lot of hyphens!).
Summary: When I first cracked open Bangai-O: Spirits , I was expecting a fairly standard Treasure shooter: rails, many forward-firing guns, the works. What I was not prepared for, however, was the incredible amount of missiles and ninja-robots.
Conclusion: However, if you can get past the unrelenting challenge, the game is quite fun. This is one of those shooters where bullet and missile fire fill the entire screen in a massive orgy of blasting stuff. With that, the experience proves to be quite visceral.
Summary: D3Publisher of America's Bangai-O Spirits, a re-imagination of their ‘90s cult classic, is a compelling blend of twitch-fest shooter and puzzler genres, seasoned with strategic and tactical elements.
