TWINKLE STAR SPRITES reviews and comments

Translated by

Mix of SHMUP and Tetra, that's how the game was sold at the time on Neo Geo. 20 years later, the concept did not take a wrinkle and still holds the road as much. The solo is intended especially as a good way to perfect his training, it is in fact in multi that the title reveals all the power of its principle. Low blows, tricks, situation reversations, explosive combos, all the essential ingredients in order to make each part memorable. The Mario Kart of the SHMUP simply.

Twinkle Star sprites is an original shoot them up. Indeed it is no longer a question of destroying the most enemies while avoiding the shots, but to defeat another player. When an enemy ship explodes, it directly impacts those who are glued to it. There is then a chain explosion effect, which can result in several negative effects for the opposing player, ranging from the simple missile to sending a boss to the other player, in order to full-bodied. This is a Asser old game NeoGeo-also released on Saturn-which for me did not really took wrinkles and always remains, in its original concept. I warn those who have never played it: the slowdowns that there was on NeoGeo are faithfully preserved, which could enerver, but concretely we can derive tactical advantages. I therefore advise this game to the neophites who love the shmups and the original concepts. A 2 the game is really nice. I did not test the multi, to see so.

Shmup or Puzzle? If You know Puyo-Puyo (Aka Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine) or Puzzle Bobble in the Co-Op, you have to imagine this Game combined with a Shoot'm Up-then you have the Idea of what this strange Mix is about. As in Puyo-Puyo, on one Side of the Screen you always have an Opponent-be it the human Player or the AI-who makes life difficult for You. By balling through cute Pastel-colored opponent's stalks on his left half of the pitch in the best Cute'm Up Manner, the Player on his Side does the same. Here, everyone tries to string Together possible firsts-because through good Combos, more Enemies appear on the Screen, who make life hell for them. In case of an Emergency, a limited Number of Smart Bombs are available for each shoot and anywhere, which can Interrupt the Combo Chain but in an Emergency clean the Whole Screen of Opponents. Twinkle Star Sprites Originally appeared in 1996 for the Neo Geo, SNK'S powerful yet also expensive arcade console. It was later followed By Implementations on numerous other Platforms. If you are looking for a fun Two-player Experience, which somehow can't commit to any Genre, you've come to the right place.
