  • Summary: (Also known in Japan as "Gunpey Reverse") With Q Entertainment's tradition for visual style and original music, Gunpey offers a unique puzzle experience. As lines of various angles climb up the screen, the player's objective is to flip the lines, located in squares, to connect them over five columns. Connecting lines from left to right remove the connected row. If an incomplete line reaches the top of the screen, the game is over. Features 40 varied backgrounds and stylized music and two-player multiplayer over wireless ad-hoc connectivity. [Namco Bandai Games] Expand

  1. A great puzzle game that is easy to play and difficult to master. While the game was obviously inspired by Lumines, the gameplay is different enough to make Gunpey DS interesting and challenging in its own right.
  2. While nothing about this is extremely challenging on one of the easier skill levels, trying to beat your high score and making some awesome combos while playing a seasoned human player or computer player on difficult is what will separate the newbies from the true pros.

    While the kiddy graphics and styling might turn off some players to Gunpey DS, it would be a mistake to dismiss the game based on looks alone.
  4. Fun for awhile, but with not much variety in the gameplay it can get pretty stale.
  5. It's easy to achieve proficiency in the game, and so difficult to fail, you may find that your skill and your interest in the game plateau quickly. [Dec. 2006, p.106]
  6. Fun for a while, Gunpey just doesn't possess the deep gameplay required to be a classic puzzle game.
  7. With a gaming pedigree as diverse, extensive and impressive as Gunpei Yokoi's, it's a shame to see his name tainted by Gunpey DS. The only aspect of the game that Gunpey DS exceeds in - lasting appeal - is the one the rest of the game completely rebels against.
