A DS Shooter That's Overwhelming But Awesome

Game Informer
22 September 2009
  • Excerpt: While developers struggle to find ways to use the Wii's unique controls, the DS is home to a treasure trove of unique and interesting arcade style titles. Add Big Bang Mini to that list. Using only the stylus, you move a small globe around the bottom screen, making swiping motions to shoot at the enemies above. The simple mechanics work well, providing an ingratiating twist on the top-down shooter.

Test Big Bang Mini DS

Generation NT
9 June 2009
  • Conclusion: A qui conseiller Big Bang Mini ? Aux amoureux de jeux "à part" ? Oui, car le gameplay ne provoque pas d'enragements contre la console lors d'échecs (sauf en cas d'hypertension), et la durée de vie est suffisamment bonne pour qu'on n'ait pas (trop) à râler. Les fans de shoot them up, quant à eux, pourront juger que le titre d'Arkedo n'est pas bien difficile, avec des patterns pas très surprenants, et que les gourmands de scores à exploser ne sont pas gâtés pour un sou...
  • Pros: Une expérience unique, La maniabilité sans reproche, Jamais la DS n'aura été aussi colorée, Le prix
  • Cons: Un ensemble répétitif (niveaux et musique), Un scoring guère présent..., ...et une durée de vie qui s'en ressent

Video Game Generation

  • 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. Though it is devoid of useful multiplayer, the package as a whole is so fun that hardly anything negative can be said.
  • 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.

Gaming Evolution
2 March 2009
  • Conclusion: While there have been several shooters released on the Nintendo DS prior to Big Bang Mini, many of them were missing the artistic flare which is what helps this title stand out. Though not on the scale as many AAA titles for the home consoles, Big Bang Mini provides a solid simple-player gaming experience, alongside solid visuals and high replay value, which is being sought after by gamers around the world.
