UGO: Nanostray 2 Review

UGO writes: "It's hard not to appreciate the elegant simplicity of a good shmup - that's "shoot 'em up" for the gamespeak illiterate. Even the most punishingly difficult games in the genre require little more than a control pad and a couple of buttons to play. Such is the case with Shin'en's Nanostray 2 follow-up to their 2005 release for the Nintendo DS. The sequel expands on the previously vertical-only shmup by adding in multi-directional 2D gameplay and all-new support for wireless play, among other things.

Kickin' It Old School in Nanostray 2

The basic premise in Nanostray 2 is to survive through to the end of each level - boss fight and all - while racking up tens of thousands of points by killing wave after wave of enemy attackers plus the occasional super-sized solo foe. Your ship is equipped with a straight-shooting laser beam and an additional, limited-use secondary weapon. In addition, up to two satellites can be collected, both of which function as additional shots tacked on to your primary attack."

The story is too old to be commented.
