  • Summary: 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 interesting and challenging in its own right.

    The PSP version is the purest taste of Gunpey you're likely to receive anywhere. The skin collecting is addictive, and as long as you don't mind the brutal, linear, hours-long grind needed to collect them all, then this is probably the version most older gamers will go for.
  3. Gunpey's pulsing music and visuals may remind you of "Lumines," but don't let it fool you: This addictive puzzle game is unique and bizarre enough to stand on its own merits.
  4. 65
    Even for a puzzle fiend such as myself, I can't see myself playing Gunpey ever again. It just doesn't have that intangible addictive quality that makes up a great puzzler.
  5. There's no problem with a Q puzzler that's tougher than previous titles; it just shouldn't be so cheap. [Holiday 2006, p.82]
  6. It’s not a game you look forward to visiting, it’s a job.
  7. Even the Ad Hoc multiplayer mode can't rescue the title from being just another failed puzzler. [May 2007, p.84]
