Summary: In simple terms, the game is fun, addictive and deep. Plus when you take into account the different game modes and essentially a free alarm clock at only $19.99, it’s not just a bargain price, it’s a steal!
Conclusion: old-school gameplay mix of Space Invaders and Centipede, Big Bang Mini is a definitively unique gaming experience. Using the stylus, the gamer shoots fireworks into some rather unique enemies that occupy the top screen of the DS.
Excerpt: I've got a confession to make. When I first heard of Big Bang Mini I didn't think: "That's a shmup with fireworks." No, what I actually thought was: "That sounds like a porn film. A particularly disturbing one at that." Luckily for you (and my reputation), I did a spot of research.
Summary: This is an entertaining, frenetic, and lovingly crafted schmup that is right at home on the DS. Accessible enough for new players to get acclimated, and challenging enough for hardcore gamers to get their fix, this is a universal choice to gift to any DS owner.
Pros: Clever and intriguing level designs., Bizarre, colorful and interesting enemies., Intuitive controls., Simple but challenging., Value-priced.
Cons: It's short., No real multiplayer support., Some may not enjoy stylus-only controls.
