    Painful childhood memories aside, 99Bullets otherwise pays great homage to that era of arcade shooters – and intriguingly takes their focus on achieving high scores and actually makes it the win condition, while further keeping you on your toes with a restricted amount of ammunition.

    But with a little perseverance, you start to learn the formations, and begin to improve your performance with every passing attempt. Success comes from meeting the rigid points target, with bonuses awarded from getting to the end of the level alive.

    A smart idea, executed in a very controlled fashion, but could do with letting its hair down occasionally.

    The combination of two genres doesn't always equal success in the world of video games, but the unique mix of shooter and puzzler elements in 99Bullets at least creates an experience that makes it stand out from the crowd.

    Get this if you're tired of the same old boring shooting - every bullet counts. [Sept 2011, p.76]

    It looks good, sounds good, and the execution is tight. It's a shame that this one will also toil in the obscurity of the DSiWare store.

    A must for space shooter fans.
