Big Bang Mini (DS)

 

At first glance, Big Bang Mini doesn't seem like a traditional shoot-'em-up. Given that the genre is best known for tiny spaceships blasting their way through thick fields of alien fire, you'd be forgiven for wondering where fish skeletons, pirate...

Though billed as a shoot-'em-up, you won't find the traditional diminutive ship or space environments here. Across ten locations, the objective here is to collect stars while avoiding enemy fire and letting off some of your own firepower. And even if...

Clever and intriguing level designs ; Bizarre, colorful and interesting enemies ; Intuitive controls ; Simple but challenging ; Value-priced

It's short ; No real multiplayer support ; Some may not enjoy stylus-only controls

Is it as good as Geometry Wars: Galaxies, a game you can pick up for about a tenner? No, but it's a worthy addition to any shmup fan's on the move collection.

Cool graphics ; Great music ; Unique shmup gameplay

Stylus controls not perfect

The shmup is a genre that's struggled to find a place in gaming's mainstream, and we doubt Big Bang Mini on the DS will change that fact. But it's an impressive effort with an interesting control scheme that, for the most part, works well. Is it as...
