3D Classics: Twinbee Review

Perhaps the best 3D Classics game yet

Twinbee may be a Konami shooter but it looks like it could have been made by Nintendo. It's bright, colourful and a little bit quirky.

Nintendo has done a good job updating this old NES shooter for 3DS. Flying with the Circle Pad makes it easier to avoid enemies and with the 3D Slider all the way up, it really does feel like you're flying high above the ground as you fly about searching for bells.

Shoot these and they'll change colour, each granting a different power-up - but be sure to watch for bullets and enemies in the air and on the ground. You can bomb those on the ground but you'll have more than enough work trying to keep the enemy in the air at bay.

Like many NES games, TwinBee is very difficult and there are no continues - but it never seems unfair so even if you're getting pummeled, you'll feel like going back in for more punishment. There's easily enough going on here to justify the £4.50 price tag and considering the original was never released in the UK, it's well worth checking out on 3DS.
