Excerpt: In the genre of shoot-'em-ups, which includes games like Gradius and R-Type, there exists a subgenre that many people refer to as "cute-'em-ups." Structurally speaking, a cute-'em-up is like any other side-scrolling shooter. However, whereas traditional shooters tend to depict futuristic spaceships engaging in battle with serious alien creatures, a cute-'em-up usually features a goofy mascot trading firepower with cuddly teddy bears and googly-eyed puffballs.
Pros: Solid shooter with a good variety of weapons and enemies, Helper characters let you unleash major firepower and add a touch of strategy, The presentation is too cute
Cons: Like most shooters, you can beat the game in a half hour if you know what you're doing
