    An obscure title, but a very good one. I had never heard of TwinBee before, despite loving old games in its genre. If you are a fan of top-down shooter or bullet hell games, this is a must buy for the 3DS. The art is bright, fun, and imaginative, the music and sounds are catchy and outstanding, and the gameplay is straightforward enough to pick up and play, but will challenge and punishAn obscure title, but a very good one. I had never heard of TwinBee before, despite loving old games in its genre. If you are a fan of top-down shooter or bullet hell games, this is a must buy for the 3DS. The art is bright, fun, and imaginative, the music and sounds are catchy and outstanding, and the gameplay is straightforward enough to pick up and play, but will challenge and punish you the further you go. The 3d effect in the game is a lot better while you play the game than the trailer in the eShop lets on. There is not a lot of depth to this game, but it's so charming that you can't help but love it. And let's face it... at $5 it's almost cheaper than a Happy Meal or a short trip to the arcade if you're fortunate enough to still have or remember those. If you like old games or top-down shooters, pick this one up if you want a few hours of fun at a small price. Expand

    It's still just a bit too steep at 4.50 quid. [Christmas 2011, p.89]
  2. Like many NES games, TwinBee is very difficult and there are no continues - but it never seems unfair so even if you're getting pummeled, you'll feel like going back in for more punishment.

    Enjoyable for what it is, but for the money we should be getting more. [Nov 2011, p.76]
