    True 2-D spectacular from the Masters of Gaming

    In anticipation of Treasure's Bangai-O Spirits, I replayed Dreamcast's 1999 port of Treasure's classic Nintendo 64 Bakuretsu Muteki Bangaioh. Right up to level 61. For the veteran gamer, I was feeling both excised and gl... Read Full Review

    A fun game lies in wait for those that can handle its difficulty.

    Witty tutorial, easy to learn hard to master, and a great level editor are all pluses for this game.

    The game has an optional tutorial mode that introduces some characters, strange dialogue, and the ins and outs of the game. Then, when you're done with the tutorial you can forget the dialogue and the characters, they do... Read Full Review
