Direct port of Konami 's 1991 arcade game, Detana Twinbee continues the cute'em up trend of this long running series by actually upping the audio-visuals to brave new heights.
The graphical style is extremely warm, with its colorful cartoony hand-drawn sprites and backgrounds which seem to come straight out of a fairy tale. The scrolling is silky smooth too with no slowdown while the detailed backgrounds are varied and a pleasure to look at.
The music (and sound effects) are also of the highest standard, with full midi support which can be easily accessed before starting a game.
Gameplay is straightforward as you need to take down ground and air targets, collect bells (or power ups) and use the power shot to take down entire enemy waves, R-Type style.
The difficulty level is rather low, with instant respawn points and infinite continues.
Lastlty, loading time is really fast and unintrusive, like most X68000 games!
