  1. An initially interesting concept falls apart quickly as the frustration level rises. Though there are many levels, wading through them quickly feels like a chore.
  2. Planet Pachinko isn't necessarily a terrible game, it just has too many balls in the air at once. The pachinko theme is unique, and you certainly can't fault the developer for trying to make the game as intense as possible, but there's a fine line between intense and out-of-control and Planet Pachinko seems to have crossed that line.

    The overall experience, despite being uniquely funny in its introduction, and obviously oddball in design, is just far too sloppy, and it’s obvious at every turn that this game was created by a team that’s still getting the feel for exactly what’s needed in a good little arcade-inspired action game.
