Big Bang Mini for Nintendo DS Game Review
I posted a sneak peak of Big Bang Mini for Nintendo DS before. I am excited that I got a chance to review it as well. It is really fun! Pretty much you get to make your own fireworks displays. You send up rockets with a sweep of the stylus and try to avoid any bullets that fall from the fireworks that miss. When an enemy is defeated you collect stars and try to progress through all 90 levels.
It is rated E for everyone and I bet it would be fun for kids as well as adults. I may have to get my dad a DS so that he can play it on the metro on the way to work in the mornings.
The aim was to create an absorbing, yet challenging game for Nintendo DS which fully utilized the unique attributes of the stylus to enhance gameplay, according to Melanie Mroz, CEO of SouthPeak Games. “The classic arcade shoot em up, is a perennial favorite, but it needed a genuinely new twist,” explained Mroz. “There’s a universal attraction to fireworks, and something strangely captivating about creating displays, even in the midst of gameplay. The sweep of the stylus is the ideal way to launch a rocket into the sky with a satisfying swoosh, before it bursts into a kaleidoscope of brilliant shapes and colors – and destroys the opposition. It’s this combination of the old and the new in Big Bang Mini which will have players hooked.”
The game has already received an excellent response from industry reviewers, was awarded ‘Best Game Soundtrack’ at the prestigious video game festival, Prix du Festival du Jeu Vidéo in France, and was also nominated for ‘Best Portable Console Game’.
