Beautiful visuals, great music, exciting gameplay, and an innovative control scheme make Big Bang Mini one of the best DS games out there.

Big Bang Mini


When it comes to shooters, it's hard to imagine innovation.? It's like trying to bring something new to the peanut butter and jelly sandwich.? From 1942 to Ikaruga to Geometry Wars, we've essentially done the same thing; exhausting?all manners of?color...

One of the fastest, most exciting, accessible titles for the DS, especially if you like shooters.

Big Bang Mini Review


The first thing you'll notice about Big Bang Mini is that it just doesn't use those face buttons to make everything happen. You'll be using the stylus to get the job done and get those fireworks in the air. Using the touch screen, you have to glide the...

Big Bang Mini will unduly go overlooked as an underrated title that some will probably see as nothing special. But, if you’re looking for a time waster then Big Bang Mini might be what you’re looking for. Especially at the cheap price of $19.99, you...

Playable is short bursts ; Good graphics and music ; Price

Not being able to move and shoot at the same time

Well worth the price of admission.

Big Bang Mini


Who knew a game about fireworks would be one of the first must-own games of 2009? Big Bang Mini may have a stupid name, but that doesn't change the fact that it's one of the best shooters to come out in the last ten years. With amazing graphics and a...

Special features

In classic arcade fashion, the game starts out slowly, with a tutorial teaching you the controls while getting you set for the first few levels. Then as you progress further through the levels, the action gets as frantic. The stylus certainly gets a...

Deserving of Fireworks

This game is surprisingly addictive. It gets a little repetitive, but in small bursts it's great

Big Bang Mini Review


Using the DS's unique features to its full advantage, Big Bang Mini carves out a unique identity in the niche shooter genre.

Big Bang Mini is a distinctive game that simply wouldn't work on any system but the DS-but there it works brilliantly. With so much content, challenge, and visual insanity packed into a $20 title, this game deserves a spot in any DS owner's library.

Big Bang Mini Review


Southpeak Interactive's new Nintendo DS shooter is an unexpected treat that's super addictive in both its quick-paced play and charming visual style. Now, before you gun nuts go running for your DS's, you should know Big Bang Mini is not a "shooter" in...

The only frustrating issue with the experience is that the stylus and your own fingers can get in the way of the chaotic action. You’ll definitely be prompted to “retry” on several occasions simply because you couldn’t see what was going on. That’s...

Big Bang Mini - DS review at Thunderbolt Games


Every now and again you get one of these pick-up-and-play games that hits the DS with a bit of a buzz. Games such as Picross, Planet Puzzle League or Brain Age – they offer no story, no real end goal, but they're simple fun you can carry with you...
