Moero! Twinbee: Cinnamon Hakasei wo Sukue is a cute shooter and is the second episode of the Twinbee series released by Konami for the Famicom System. The scientist Dr. Cinnamon has been kidnapped and it is the player's duty to bring him back home safe. No less than three pilots are up to the challenge : The now familiar blue Twinbee, the pink Winbee girl and the green Gwinbee. Interestingly, a three simultaneous player mode is available and all three pilots can be played at the same time ! This option was sadly taken out of the American cartridge version... All the traditional twinbee elements are reunited here. Our bees can shoot enemies up in the air or drop bombs on the ground. Floating bells (they look more like jingle bells here) can also be cracked open and release all sort of power-ups. Interestingly, this episode also features horizontal scrolling stages which is really unusual (and unique) for the series.

It is interesting to notice that Moero! Twinbee: Cinnamon Hakasei wo Sukue was also released in cartridge format in Japan and this version is indeed quite rare. The American version, however, was renamed 'Stinger' and was probably one of the only Twin Bee game to be ever released in the US (the other exception is the arcade game Detana!! Twinbee which was apparently also released in the US in 1991 under the name 'Bells & Whistles')

This second Twin Bee game is a nice surprise. I personally love this series from Konami and it is interesting to see how the game evolved from the original arcade game released back in 1986. This title is the only Twin Bee game to feature horizontal stages as far as I know. However, because the designers kept the same gameplay and control mechanics, I find the bells to be really tricky to collect in those levels. This game stays true to the series despite moving into genuinely new territory in places. An unusual and fun title that any fan of Konami's cute'm up series shouldn't miss.
