  • Summary: In Portable Shrine Wars teams of Mikoshi carriers go head to head in a fast and frantic competition. Barge opponent mikoshi's into the crowd or fling team members at them to send them crashing to the ground. As you run past grab any men that have fallen from their mikoshi to recruit them. The more men you have the faster you can run carrying the mikoshi and the more human-ammunition you'll have. You’ll need to battle giant festival bosses and mikoshi ninjas while avoiding pit holes and other obstacles. Portable Shrine Wars is a fast and crazy game and there is almost certainly nothing else like it. Expand

    This is definitely the best DSiWare game to launch at that lowest of price points in a long while, and it earns an Editor's Choice recommendation from me – so buy it and join me in the world of manic mikoshi madness.

    At 200 Points, Portable Shrine Wars is right for the price: if you're looking for an engaging game that harkens back to a more arcade style and is fun in short bursts, then you might find this one to be right for you.

    But despite its hugely endearing premise, the dizzying, chaotic novelty soon turns into a muddled scrimmage where success tends to be measured as much in luck as in skill.
