Review


The first thing that comes into your head while playing the game is Flip Shot.

The introduction is composed of super big size drawing of the character in the neo colorful style, but without background. It will be a shot of the character with a single color background. It looks kind of weird to be honest. The game has 7 characters at the beginning and 2 hidden ones. All the guys from Flip Shot are back: Simon (which previously was Saimon!?!?), Mr. Justice, Bloody Wolf, etc.

There are various backgrounds going from a ship to the street slums. The ball is like a globetrotters basketball but with blue and yellow. The objective of the game is to hit 9 stars with the ball and then when you've done with that a rope breaks, so if the ball goes through, the guy loses. The A button is used to hit the ball harder, B button without using the joystick is to provoke, B button with the joystick is to dash in that direction and c button is a super attack. The super attack can only be used after you fill the energy bar located at the bottom of the screen, and then you'll have to fill it again to use the power one more time.

The graphics of the game are cool, the characters style of graphics resemble shock troopers kinda 2d polygons, while the background are regular neo 2d. The speed of the game is awesome, no slowdown and if you hit the ball with the A button enough, the ball can really go fast (you have to be well placed to hit it with the A, it is not very easy to do). The music is simply plain and repetitive but I think that is irrelevant.

The ending are the classic neo endings, big static characters and a little story is written below it.


Graphics: 8/10
Sound: 6/10
Game play: 9/10
Replay Value: 10/10

Overall Rating: 8/10
